Throughout the 40+ year history of rock and pop music culture, art and music have always marched together hand-in-hand. As documented in past Cover Story articles and in the many fine books written on the topic, album cover artwork, along with the music it promotes, has gone through numerous iterations since the early 1960s, with styles often set by one or two “breakthrough” artists who are then copied (and, in some cases, improved upon) by others (i.e., musicians, art directors and other related creatives) making a living in the same business.
