ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PORTRAIT:

Parents' basement. Mother's record collection. Catholic school. Ninth birthday. Guitar lesson. Write songs. Popeye. Mighty Mouse. Defend the weak. Fight the bad guys. Thirteenth birthday. Electric guitar. Rock poets: Patti, Lou, Dylan, etc. Pen mightier than sword. Guitar mightier than pen. Voice mightier than ink. Marx. Jesus. Cancer. Chemo. "Life was saved by rock and roll."

PRESS-CLIPPINGS:

"Bob Wagner is not the kind of person you'd invite to sit in your favorite comfortable chair. He'd probably burn a hole right through it when he sat down."
--John Young, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE

"Haunting and kinetic, featuring a healthy dose of Rimbaud, Vonnegut, Nelson Algren and Grimm's really grim Fairy Tales thrown in to keep audiences edgy and attentive." --Tony Norman PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE
