Subject: Storm Thorgerson: The Great Gig in the Sky

LONDON (AP) — English graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, whose eye-popping album art for Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin encapsulated the spirit of 1970s psychedelia, died Thursday. He was 69.

In a statement, Thorgerson's family said that his death "was peaceful and he was surrounded by family and friends." The statement gave few further details but said that the artist, who suffered a stroke in 2003, had been ill for some time.

So sad. He was indeed "the best album designer in the world." RIP  :\'(
