A to Z: Storm Thorgerson R.I.P

Today my blog honors a man who passed away last week. He was a man who worked in the music business but was not a musician but an artist. Storm Thorgerson is probably a name you don't recognize. However, you probably have his work in your home n your CD or vinyl collection. Even some of you who are totally electronic might have his work on a T-shirt. 

Thorgerson passed away last Thursday. He designed album covers for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Styx, The Cranberries, and Phish. It is Pink Floyd who is most famous. 

You have probably seen this one..

Pink Floyd / Darkside Of The Moon

he did this one as well...

Atom Heart Mother: Pink Floyd

and this one..


I think a lot of people wish he was still here. Here is Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here"...

I'll be back tomorrow with a new post.
