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.
"Alternate cover for Van Halen One,...yes this was almost the album cover for Van Halens first album!" #evh #eddievanhalen #alexvanhalen #diamonddave #davidleeroth #michaelanthony #alternate #albumcover #Rock #Music #vantastikhistory #Vantastik #VanHalen
