Album designer Storm Thorgerson dies

A handful of album sleeves designed by Thorgerson.
British graphic designer Storm Thorgerson has died at the age of 69.
He designed many classic album covers for artists and groups as Pink Floyd, Genesis, Peter Gabriel and Led Zeppelin. Some of his works became iconic, like the cover for Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon.

Peter Gabriel comments Thorgerson's death like this on Facebook: "He was a smart, very gifted artist, who could be warm and nurturing, difficult and obstinate in equal measure. His work was highly original and influential. We will all miss him badly as a man and artist".
