    Default The Story Behind 1984's Cover Art

    Wasn't sure if this had been posted, if it has, I'm surprised I hadn't seen it. Mods...If this is redundant, feel free to move or close. Sorry

    First saw this about 2 years ago. Contrary to what many believe, the baby angel was not Dave. Initially, the band wanted the artist, to illustrate dancing metallic women likely something like Autograph's "That's The Stuff" cover http://www.flickr.com/photos/epiclectic/3010165346/ (wouldn't be surprised as I think Autograph was touring with VH around that time) but she wasn't interest in doing it. The baby angel image was a personal piece of work she did that was in her portfolio. When the band saw it, they asked if they could use it. She's a pretty talented artist. Think she also did some work for Hagar's VOA album too.

    Cool I don't recall seeing the actual audio interview with her. I did read an interview recently about the story.

    What the hell is with that big breath she takes? Is she 100 years old now? LOL

    Here's her website http://margoznahas.com/ Scroll to bottom and click link under Past Works of Art and you'll likely recognize some of her images she did for other music acts.

    Pretty funny, she also did the VOA cover for Sammy.

    I remember reading somewhere (could well have been on The flamin' Links, for all I know!) that there was talk of that same child model (now adult, obviously) being used again on any new VH (with DLR) album cover.

    Probably absolute bollocks but I just thought I'd mention it.
