"(insert the epic guitar solo from Yes's "Starship Troopers" here)" (the art of Roger Dean)

One of my favorite artists, Roger Dean.

Today's musical selection comes from Yes - the guitar solo from "Starship Troopers"

Roger's link on Wikipedia and the link to his website.

I was fascinated by his work with album covers and and the stylings from Heavy Metal. I am a child of the 1970s and 1980s and his work hits that cord of within me. I like curves and an otherworldly-ness.

My 12 year old self fell in love...and I have never fallen out.
