Happy Birthday Storm Thorgerson (2-28-1944)

In 1968, along with Aubrey Powell, he founded the graphic art group Hipgnosis. He created many iconic album designs during his career for so many great rock bands: Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Alan Parsons Project, Yes, Black Sabbath, Bad Co., ELO, Robert Plant, 10cc, AC/DC, Paul McCartney, Genesis, The Police, and MANY more. Considered one of the greatest album covers of all time, his most famous album cover was The Dark Side of the Moon. A great talent and a really nice guy by all accounts. Check out his wikipedia page for more info, and his appearances in several Pink Floyd “Making of” documentary’s were very cool. He passed away 18 April 2013 (aged 69), but his legacy will live on. RIP, Storm.
