s-a dus si Giger ! 74 de ani....tocmai ascultam cu Vlad duminica ELP de pe Brain Salad Surgery si ne uitam la coperta facuta de Giger.
I-am vazut expozitia exceptionala la Viena in 2011 (danke, Arne, greatest fan), era unul din artistii mei preferati all time. Am auzit prima data de el, cu Alien, cind l-am vazut la Teatrul Muzical Bv la video, in 1984...da, la Alien a ajuns prin Dan O'Bannon, intial lucra pentru Jodorowski si al sau Dune. apare in documentarul de anul trecut despre acest proiect nebun, nebun, nebun...Singura experienta pozitiva din cinema a lui Giger a fost cu Ridley Scott la Alien, apoi it went downhill...totusi a luat atunci Oscarul...
zice sir Rid:
"I am very saddened to hear of Giger's passing. I think back on how committed and passionate he was, and then consequently, all the security we built up around his 'lock up' studios at Shepperton. I was the only one allowed the honour of going in, and I absolutely enjoyed every hour I spent with him there. He was a real artist and great eccentric, a true original, but above all, he was a really nice man. He will be missed."
