Default RIP Storm Thorgerson

Storm Thorgerson, whose company Hipgnosis designed pretty much every rock and pop album cover worth mentioning in the last few decades has died.

Impressive bio, A true artist he was. I never really knew how much he had done.

That's sad news. Hipgnosis created some of my favorite album covers of all time. I used to love reading their name in the album credits.

Thanks for posting this...don't know if I would have heard otherwise. I had no idea who he was until now, and it's nice to be able to appreciate the man behind so much wonderful art. May he rest in peace.

I grew up listening to Pink Floyd, so his work has always been in the background. Beautiful and ethereal images. An incredible body of work.
