I've always had a fascination with the great rock music of the past. And, likewise, with the great album cover art we sat around and studied while we were high and listening to that music.

Below you will see the covers of 12 classic rock albums. They have been altered so as to erase the name of the album and the artist/band from the cover.

How many do you recognize? Can you name the album and the artist?

(I will be fair and admit that this is one of the tougher ones. I've created over a dozen of these, but most of the easier ones are lost in the shifting digital sands of the past until I choose to re-create them.)

No rules for this first batch. No limits. Just name as many as you can as fast as you can. He/she with the most right wins. :)

YES!  Elijsha's edit wins him the first point.

I'll be editing the initial post to include the correct answers.

Yes. But by editing your first post, you have robbed all the avid fans from the drama and suspense of getting it at the last possible second. ;)

Anyway, that's two points for you. And, if you're lucky, when you meet Syd Barret in Hell, he'll forgive you for mixing up Get a Grip with Atom Heart Mother. ;)

Yes. Aerosmith is very close to Pink Floyd. ;)

Had to take you down a notch, since you're running away with things so far. ;)

OH!  LR is not allowed to answer.  She once heard every answer, though she has forgotten them all.

#5 should be easy.  Though it's a lesser-known album, the same artist did almost all their covers.

On a side note, I saw Ronny James in concert in a small venue.  He's tinier than Tommy Shaw and emotes more than Meatloaf.  I dubbed him "the Michael Bolton of heavy metal."

You don't want to get into a concert contest with me.  That's fodder for a different thread. ;)

#1 is tough.  #3 is a matter of being weird at the right stage in your life.
