Danish / American rock singer Maryann Cotton returned to Detroit for the 2nd Annual Dick Wagner Memorial Concert on February 20th. Video of Cotton performing the Alice Cooper classic, “I’m Eighteen”, alongside original Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunaway, can be seen below.
Dick Wagner worked with Dennis and the Cooper group on School’s Out, Billion Dollar Babies, and Muscle Of Love, before he became a permanent member and Alice’s co-writer in 1975. Wagner wrote a full concept album together with Maryann, where he brought in Alice to write three songs for him. (They never released the album, Dick died few weeks before the final studio recordings.)
Together Maryann Cotton and Dennis Dunway paid tribute to Dick Wagner, performing ‘I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out’’.
