Storm Thorgerson, designer of the iconic album cover for Pink Floyds “Dark Side Of The Moon”, has died at the age of 69.
Thorgersons 40 year career started at Hipgnosis and he was responsible for the album artwork for other Floyd albums e.g Atom Heart Mother, Wish You Were Here and Animals. Much in demand Storm also created the cover art for other artists such as Led Zeppelin’s “presence”, 10CC’s “How Dare You”, Black Sabbath’s “Technical Ecstasy”, Peter Gabriel’s “Scratch”, Muse’s “uprising” and many, many more.
Storm has left the world an enormous legacy.
My thoughts are with his friends and family.
