Storm Thorgerson - sad news Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Sunday, 12 October 2003

We were contacted late on Friday evening by a close friend of Storm Thorgerson's, with the very sad news that Storm had suffered a stroke and was being cared for in a Parisian hospital. At that time, news was a little sketchy and Storm's exact condition was not known.

We were contacted again this morning with an update, which is simply that Storm is stable. Naturally we extend our best wishes, our prayers, and our hopes for a fast and full recovery, and our sympathies are with his family and friends at this tough time.

To many, Storm is the sixth member of the band (the Floyd's George Martin, if you like) who has played a vital part in their history. He was due to talk at the start of Film Session 3 at the Paris "Interstellar" exhibition, which he is Art Director for. It was left to the journalist Frederic Lecomte, who was due to share the stage with Storm, to sum up our feelings when he said: "Storm Thorgerson: Wish You Were Here", to which the packed amphitheatre vigorously applauded.

On a separate, albeit related note, our report from the opening weekend is in preparation; there was so much to see and experience, thanks to Storm's hard work, and the hard work of others too, that the report will take some time to get into a semblance of order! Rest assured, though, we will get it to you as soon as we can - hopefully by the coming weekend.
