Welcome to My Nightmare. Rock and roll fans know this phrase is the name of the first solo album by musician Alice Cooper. Launched in 1975, the album is an icon not only for rock history but also for illustration art worshipers. The album cover was created by Drew Struzan, the master behind the posters of Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Throughout the history of rock and roll, band-related art was often emblazoned on t-shirts with famous album cover reproductions and logos of bands becoming popular ways to grab the attention of other audiences beyond the headbangers and mosh pit denizens.
At this year’s Coachella, the annual music festival frequented by fashionistas, shirts with prints of rock artist David Bowie (as Ziggy Stardust) as well as the classic shirt that shows the symbol of Led Zeppelin’s 1977 North American Tour (the largest concert series of the band’s history) could be seen throughout the crowd around the more than four concert stages at the festival. Check out the Led Zeppelin tee here!
At the same festival, the return of the band Guns N ‘Roses assured its fans a selection of clothing items that reproduced album covers like Use Your Illusion I and II and the famous logo of guns surrounded by roses. By the way, for fans of the band, or at least the man under the hat, Slash, we don’t need to tell you what is the print on this shirt here in the pictures, right?
