Pink Floyd: Money in Studio

This morning I read that Storm Thorgerson, the graphic artist who did a lot of album cover designs, had passed away at 69 (from the Pink Floyd fansite Brain damage via NYT).

Storm was probably best known for his work with Pink Floyd, and the iconic design of Dark Side of the Moon, as well as Wish You Were Here and Animals. He also designed covers for Led Zeppelin (Houses of the Holy), Peter Gabriel, Styx, Phish and others. (See Pitchfork for more details)

Perhaps a fitting way to mark the occassion is with this clip from Classic Albums: The Making of The Dark Side of the Moon (2003)
