Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (1975)

"Getting burned" was also a common phrase in the music industry,used often by artists denied royalty payments.Two stuntmen were used (Ronnie Rondell and Danny Rogers),one dressed in a fire-retardant suit covered by a business suit.His head was protected by a hood,underneath a wig.The photograph was taken at the Warner Bros.studios in Los Angeles.Initially the wind was blowing in the wrong direction,and the flames were forced into Rondell’s face,burning his moustache.The two stuntmen changed positions,and the image was later reversed.

The album’s cover image was inspired by the idea that people tend to conceal their true feelings,for fear of “getting burned”,and thus two businessmen were pictured shaking hands,one man on fire.

Thorgerson had noted that Roxy Music’s Country Life was sold in an opaque green cellophane sleeve—censoring the cover image—and he copied the idea,concealing the artwork for Wish You Were Here in a dark-coloured shrink-wrap(making the album art “absent”).The concept behind “Welcome to the Machine” and “Have a Cigar” suggested the use of a handshake(an often empty gesture),and George Hardie designed a sticker containing the album’s logo of two mechanical hands engaged in a handshake,to be placed on the opaque sleeve.
