Storm Thorgerson (*****)

Sunday, September 11, 2005

Storm is the maker of my favourite album cover Catherine Wheel - Chrome. Storm may be old, but his artwork and concepts for the music industry is probably the strongest there is. Pink Floyd, Mars Volta, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Peter Gabriel, The Cranberries and a bunch of others have all gotten the touch from the wizard.

My deepest respect for the man who actually built the humungus scrap metal ball for the Anthrax Stomp cover. The parts are taken very literally from scrapped American cars - American because Anthrax are American, and metal because Anthrax are a sort of metal band, and a big mother of a ball because Anthrax are naturally a big mother of a band. It's all to be seen under the Anecdotes section. !!!!!!

I met Storm at an exhibition in Norway, and he is so funny and intelligent. He is my big inspiration. Age doesnt matter, a good idea is a good idea no matter.

There is no fuzz in his work. Just a very strong concept and a clean execution. Read his book!!! He takes a lot of photos himself.
