Sadly, one of the worst album covers but still cool in some ways was for Steve Stevens. The first four strings are the same width and it is being played upside down- did HR phone this one in?

I recommend everybody in the forum to watch "Jodorowsky's Dune", a fascinating do***entary about the failed attempt of the mexican director Alejandro Jodorowsky to direct an epic version of the novel "Dune". He put together a dream team that included Dan O'Bannon, HR Giger and Moebius, who actually worked together in Paris for about 6 months before the project fell appart. A huge volume of conceptual art was submitted to the studios, so impressive that ended up getting all these artists their next gig: "Alien". It is likely that if this man didn't have the crazy dream of making "Dune", "Alien' would have looked totally different.

Ingeniero - :)

Beyond doubt, she used her own face to help us create personal acupuncture point treatment plans.

@Ati - Thank-you so much for pointing out the original mural!  It was in the Derelict's egg silo!  This is very interesting, as Giger once said the ships create the eggs, if I am not mistaken?

Cerulean Blue - You're welcome. I have to admit I know that fact because BigDave mentioned it some months ago in one of the threads.

Yes, Giger had wanted to place that mural in the ship, but Ridley rejected it because it would have revealed too much. The mural has two versions if I know correctly.

'The first version of Giger’s mural featured space explorer victims, with oxygen helmets…'

I watched "Jodorowsky's Dune" joylitt.

We missed out (source) on what that team would have produced. And Prometheus would have looked different as well.
