  1. Always good to see a new Rodney Matthews artwork , he’s been one of my favourite cover artists since my teens. I remember buying Magnums debut LP when it came out, about 78 I think…(Kingdom of Madness) and although it didn’t have Rodney’s artwork, the walls of my apartment were covered with posters of his work!

    • Yes, Rodney Matthews is a very special (aw, heck… legendary) artist for certain! Honestly, the Nazareth “No Mean City” album artwork has always put me in a trance; that was Heavy Metal album art before there ever was Derek Riggs’ famous Iron Maiden album covers!

      Kev, can I guess the other posters that hung in your apartment back in ’78? Okay, here I go: Deep Purple, Glenn Hughes, Thin Lizzy, Phil Lynott, T. Rex and this is a “quality guess”… Farrah Fawcett. 🙂 \m/\m/

      • Pretty close there Stone! Lizzy and Lynott of course, plus Queen, their first three albums were excellent, and I was big fan in their early days. Budgie artwork was up there too…Purple,natch ! Farrah, haha! Yeah, but vying for wall space with Goldie Hawn! \m/

  2. Would it be wrong to have wanted Kate Jackson more though? #guiltysecret

    • NO guilty secret! The secret is out, Kev!! You’re not guilty, bro!!

      LOL!! LOL!! Kev! Man… I was hot for Kate Jackson back then too!! From 7th grade thru high school!! “Something about Kate” 🙂 Here in the U.S., we had “Charlie’s Angels” trading cards back then! I think I might still have a few stashed away somewhere too! LOL!! 😮 OMG…

      Goldie Hawn!! LUCKY Kurt Russell. 😉 Whoa.
