Pink Floyd's management has confirmed Storm Thorgerson, has died aged 69, . He designed the cover showing a prism spreading a spectrum of colour for The Dark Side Of The Moon.

An iconic album cover from my youth.

What was your most memorable album cover ?

I liked a lot of the Hipgnosis work, seemed to sum up the 70s as did Roger Dean who designed a lot of Yes covers.

The Dark Side of the Moon was the second album I bought with my own money. A true Classic!

I always liked this one as a youngster but didn't acquire it until quite recently:

I have seen dozens of variations of that cover. There may be more versions of it than Mona Lisa or American Gothic. But unlike those two, the variations of the prism and color spectrum are interpretations, not parodies.

Well, Storm's work, of course, and this one.

I have Finlay Cowan's book Drawing and Painting Fantasy Figures. This guy was the illustrator behind a lot of Storm's best work including this:

That book showcases a lot of Storm's work with Cowan.
