I'd love to meet Mr. Scarfe and his wife - and maybe even buy some art! I've got a pretty good collection of Rock & Roll artwork already, but no Scarfe!

I was fortunate enough to meet Storm Thorgerson there in 2010 and also purchased a large format reprint of Pink Floyd's "A collection of great dance songs", by then Storm's health had deteriorated but he was gracious enough to tell me the story about the days he spent getting that shot and that it was his wife's favorite work.

The staff at San Francisco Art Exchange have been very gracious over the years and have been kind enough to show me "the actual, original" artworks for some of Pink floyd's most iconic covers that reside in their archives!

The place is a must see for any music lover.

I would love to attend. Besides I'm an old Pink Floyd fan that is deserving. Ha please.

What awesome images to accompany and enhance one of my all time favorite albums of any genre. Just a nit, but The Wall was released in '79 as opposed to '82.

Always enjoyed his art & what can you say about the album that hasn't already been said.
