Many people don’t think of it but there was a line of graphic designers who are true artists, on par with musicians, the former shaped rock music visually as the latter did aurally. One of such masters was Storm Thorgerson.

Associated primarily with PINK FLOYD – he attended school with Syd Barrett and Roger Waters – Storm masterminded the artwork not only of their masterpieces such as “Dark Side Of The Moon” and “Wish You Were Here”, but also, via his company Hipgnosis, has input in other classics, including LED ZEPPELIN’s “Houses Of The Holy” and Peter Gabriel’s debut album, as well as creating stunning covers for contemporary players’ records like THE MARS VOLTA’s “Deloused In The Comatorium” and AUDIOSLAVE’s self-titled LP.

Active to his very last day, Storm died today, aged 69.
