Van Halen-1984: cover art by Margo Zafer Nahas,"The band had a somewhat nebulous idea having to do with four dancing chrome women.As Eddie and Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth looked over my work they came across a painting I had done for a more personal project, an angel holding a cigarette. For the group, it was like love at first sight and the rest turned out to be album cover history.
Eddie Van Halen's ~ "Frankenstrat" ~ pictured with 22 fret Kramer neck. Eddie created this Stratocaster himself, it was made by Fender Musical Instruments. A copy of the "Frankenstrat" is currently housed in the American History Museum in Washington, D.C. Wow, this reads like a documentary! Oh, what the hell, it's one monster of a guitar! •Nashville Connection pinned this from me, yea! I love when this happens!
