JOURNEY BACK TO 40 YEARS C.D.
Remember album covers? If not, please do not read any further. Some of those covers were like portals into another world, which we would stare into until a freaky-looking bird's full-lipped beak started to look like a talking hand beneath Elton John's piano-riding tuxedo... Whoa, better stop right there. Alan Aldridge was the artist who designed album covers and posters for the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and, yes, a certain Brown Dirt Cowboy. He became creative consultant to Apple Corps, and John Lennon even dubbed him "his royal master of images." Dude's got a new book, The Man With Kaleidoscope Eyes, featuring some of his most famous artwork, plus his notorious Chelsea Girls poster; images from his children's book The Butterfly Ball; and graphics made for the Hard Rock Cafe, the House of Blues, and The New York Times. Aldridge signs and maybe shares a tale or two.
