It feels a little self-serving to write a great review about a book in which I am a character and I would never normally do this but...I am SO proud of Dick and this amazing accomplishment that I have to weigh in here. This is no pandering or self-serving, ghost-written "auto-biography" that sanitizes the past to protect the "author" or amplifies the glamor and excesses to sell units. This is a thoughtful recollection of slices of Dick's life. It's witty, artful, literate, sometimes cheeky, often philisophical and profound, gentle and loving, whistful and exuberant but, above all, musical. But that's Dick in a sentence. Reading this will certainly entertain anyone who has an interest in the "Roman" era of the music business. But it also offers insights into the complex and often insane life of the musician celebrity; the one close to, but not quite at, the top of the entertainment foodchain. In its honesty it does encompass sex, drugs and rock'n'roll - but also pain, yearning, sacrifice, adventure, growth and the joy of creating.

Aside from being my go-to musician and writer on the majority of my projects in the 70's and 80's and now again in the new milennium, Dick Wagner is also my dear friend and a good man who has more than paid his dues over the years. To see him healthy and back in form again makes me very happy. To read this wonderful book makes me very proud.

For over five decades Dick Wagner's name has been connected to some of the biggest names in rock 'n roll. The likes of Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Peter Gabriel, Kiss and Aerosmith, to name just a few, have all benefited from the Midas touch of the man they call the 'Maestro'. Wagner has worn many hats over the years, going from one of the most in demand session players in the business, to firmly establishing himself as one of the premiere singer / song writer /guitarist / producer and bandleaders in the history of rock 'n roll. So what else could there possibly left for him to do? Well write his own memoirs of course!

In the aptly titled 'Not Only Women Bleed, Vignettes From The Heart Of A Rock Musician', Wagner takes the reader on a highly entertaining and compelling emotional roller-coaster ride that seemingly leaves no stone unturned.

Unlike your typical rock ' roll bio, 'Not Only Women Bleed' is presented as a carefully crafted, vignette style book, that is not only easy to read, but more importantly, almost impossible to put down. Wagner wears his heart on his sleeve and while some might find his candid and open approach a bit shocking at times, it only helps to bridge the connection with the reader, as he deftly slides back and forth between the incredible amounts of personal triumph and tragedy that he's experienced along the way. While no one would dispute the fact that Dick Wagner definitely lived the rock 'n roll dream, scaling the heights of stardom fueled by an insatiable appetite for sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, this book is so much more than that.

First, full disclosure. I've been a Dick Wagner fan since sometime in the mid-1960's and was very excited to see this book hit Amazon. That said, if you're a fan of the hard rock genre, this book is for you. This guy helped invent hard rock and was in fact a "rock star" before the title was invented. Wagner started out rehearsing in basements, playing high school auditoriums, roller rinks and tough Michigan saloons. With his God-given talent and hard work he got about as high as you can get in the music business, playing with and writing for the most famous and commercially successful bands in America. The great road stories about drugs, hot chicks, the travel, the bad meals, the dirty deals and the hard living are all dealt with honestly in Wagner's conversational narrative style. The best news is, Dick Wagner is still out there, writing music, recording and hopefully touring soon. The book made this sixty-something baby-boomer feel young again. Dick Wagner has done it all in rock n' roll and it's all here for the reading. Caution: Do NOT start reading this book near bed time!

I finished reading the book. I have to say that the insights Dick provides into his life are engrossing. I found myself nearly obsessed by his stories of life on the road. Although I found it very interesting, I do rather like listening to his music. By that I am not saying it's a bad book (quite the opposite, in fact), I'm just saying his music is where he really bares his soul. Hearing some of the back stories of the songs makes listening to them a brand new experience all over again. Kudos!

I enjoyed this book for the rock n roll rollercoaster ride of Dick Wagner's career. I do think he shared a little to much information on all of his sexcapades. I could have done with a little less of that and no I am no prude. It just got a little boring. I respect the man for the legacy of rock he will leave behind when he goes.

It took all of three and a half hours to ingest this entire tome from cover to cover-not because it's a "simple read", but because I couldn't put the damn thing down. Dick has been a hero of mine since I saw The Frost at Detroit's venerable Grande Ballroom as a 15 year old kid. Frost was the first band I saw at the Grande, and I stood in front of the stage and watched Wagner and company knock hell out of "Mystery Man/Take My Hand" in near shock. I recall thinking "My God, I might as well just quit now-I'll NEVER be able to sing and play like that". Well, the good news (for me, anyway..) is that I didn't quit-I took Wagner's inspiration and ran with it. While I didn't run as fast and as far as he did, it was the impetus for a 40-plus year career in music as a guitar player and singer. I later met Dick, worked in his studio, and became friends with him. It has most recently been my honor and good fortune to be a part of the band that backed him for his recent "rebirth" onstage for the last short tour, and for the next one as well.
I recommend this tale of a life spent making unbelievable music as highly as I can muster words to say. It is a tale of "sex, drugs, and rock & roll" indeed, but it also gives a wonderful insight into the triumphs, trials, and tribulations of a very intelligent and spiritual man, and also serves as a testimony to his grit, work ethic, and will to live-and perform. Well done, my good friend...well done indeed.
