The metal detector just went off

It’s good to see a metal purist out there creating album art that has no business in today’s music climate. Thank you Sebastian Bach for letting your freak flag fly. Buy it here.

1969 Deep Purple album art

Not a fan of the music, but have always found their album art quite amazing. This 1969 album (self-titled) rom Deep Purple is so twisted, it could only come from a Hieronymous Bosch night terror. Digital music has ruined the album sleeve/j-card piece of music that was always so special to us. I hope this can change somehow. Buy Deep Purple music here.

Photobombing the Beatles

Here is a brief introduction of a man that wants nothing to do with the Beatles. While vacationing in London in 1969, Paul Cole watched “a bunch of kooks” repeatedly cross the street. Little did he know, he was photobombing the photo shoot for Abbey Road.

Paul Cole thought the Beatles were "a bunch of kooks."
