Keith Emerson has paid tribute on his website to artist H.R. Giger, who designed the Brain Salad Surgery album cover for ELP as well as the band’s logo for that album, which they’ve used ever since. In part, he says, “I can’t claim to have known the man very well. I respect an artist’s need for privacy but was not in a hurry to go out socializing with him.
