Default Happy Birthday Roger Dean!

Today is Roger Dean's birthday, he's now 62.

For the newbies, Roger Dean is a british artist and architect best known for his album cover work for Yes, Uriah Heep and various other prog and world music bands and his speciality in creating alien, sometimes surreal landscapes... He has been credited as a primary force in the "look" and overall visual arts element of the progressive rock movement.

Anyway, in tribute, heres some of my favorite Dean cover/sleeve art.

True, but when the aniversary for Hipgnosis's formation comes around we'll make a thread for it, this is Roger Dean day. =)

Is this one of his or is it someone imitating his style?

If it is then it`s the only album I own done by him.
