It is no easy feat to try and remember your past and then try to write it down in an informative and entertaining way, but Mr Wagner manages to do so!
By keeping the chapters short, sweet and succinct, Mr Wagner allows the reader to feel they are participating in a one to one conversation, the anecdotes are plentiful and there is a charm in his brutal honesty.
From his childhood to a substance abuse driven, pleasure seeking lifestyle, what is apparent is Dick Wagner never neglected or compromised his skills as a guitar player; his overriding concern was always to be at the top of his game, despite the rock and roll life style he led.
The heart attacks have not stopped him writing, nurturing new talent and being a genuine icon of the music business, you might not always know his name, but the chances are you have probably heard his guitar playing or experienced one of his many songs he has written or co-written.
In short, read the book and enjoy.
