Roger Waters and Storm Thorgerson
“Roger and Storm would have these intense conversations over fine wines and so on. Storm and Roger were two great intellects and there was sparks flying in their brains, those two.” - Jill Furmanovsky
R.I.P. Storm Thorgerson | 1944-2013
We first met in our early teens. We would gather at Sheep’s Green, a spot by the river in Cambridge and Storm would always be there holding forth, making the most noise, bursting with ideas and enthusiasm. Nothing has ever really changed.
He has been a constant force in my life, both at work and in private, a shoulder to cry on and a great friend.
The artworks that he created for Pink Floyd from 1968 to the present day have been an inseparable part of our work.
I will miss him. ~ David Gilmour

“I certainly was in the right!”
“You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a bruising!”
“Why does anyone do anything?”
“I don’t know, I was really drunk at the time!”
“I was just telling him, he couldn’t get into number 2. He was asking why he wasn’t coming up on freely, after I was yelling and screaming and telling him why he wasn’t coming up on freely. It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out
