Full Meltdown features 15 lost and newly discovered songs recorded by Wagner between 1979 and 1995 -- a journey of pure Rock and Roll songs and dazzling guitar virtuosity. Wagner’s songs detail the essence of life; his guitar work continues to inspire guitarists world wide, and his productions recall the era of great songs with great melodies and universally accessible lyrics.

The opening song on FULL MELTDOWN is a lyrical, powerchordal stadium rock song that gets you pumped up to flow with the rest of the CD’s song lineup. From the sublime opening organ riff, backed with the heavy backbeat of the drums, you are ready to rock, with your heart already in high gear. When Wagner’s guitar enters, you are taken away to the land of rocklove and history, where you fully understand what “Still Hungry” really means. It’s a song about sex and devotion, interspersed with a great guitar solo that is reminiscent of the fiddle solos of the Cajun fiddler Doug Kershaw. From “Still Hungry” on through “Feel it all Over”, the final song on this CD, you are swept up on a journey from Detroit, Cleveland, New York and across the world; towel dried at the end by the sirens of soul accompanied by some of the finest musicians in Rock’n’roll.
