RIP Storm Thorgerson

Sad news. Storm Thorgerson has passed away at age 69.

In my coming-of-age years Storm Thorgerson was one of the three artists I admired. The other two being Roger Dean and M.C. Escher. From Pink Floyd's "Atom Heart Mother" and "Wish You Were Here" to Led Zeppelin's "Presence" his album designs were interesting and unique. My condolences to his family and friends.

Another hero gone, can't even remember how many album sleeves in my record collection were conceived by Hipgnosis , hugely influential. Storm along with Aubrey Powell really changed the way how LP were to be presented in the 1970's. RIP legend.
