Before Roxy MusicBryan Ferry once took an audition to join classic UK band King Crimson. This was just after the late, great Greg Lake left to form Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I am not sure how the audition went but given Byron Ferrari’s (as the NME used to refer to him) later success with Roxy Music I assume that he wasn’t offered the job. The gig was given to Gordon Haskell.
I knew that late, great Swiss artist H.R. Giger had produced a number of LP/ album covers, but I hadn’t appreciated just how many there were. Many of you must know Giger from his amazing designs for the ‘Alien’ films, but check out his album art and let me know what you think. I reckon there is some great stuff there.
