Did You Know?

Trivia:

Designed the highly controversial and surreal cover art for Emerson, Lake and Palmer's landmark progressive rock album "Brain Salad Surgery". The cover art was originally deemed too sexually explicit to be shown on store shelves, but was edited before release. Giger's design for that ELP album stands out as one of the best examples of 1970s record cover art to this day. See more »
