Prog Cover Artist Patrick Woodroffe Dead At 74

(Prog) Prog sleeve artist Patrick Woodroffe has died at the age of 74, his friends in Pallas have confirmed. Renowned for his fantasy-themed work in paintings, etchings and sculpture, he created covers for Pallas' The Sentinel, the Strawbs'_ Burning For You_ and Stratovarius' Fright Night.

He enjoyed a long collaboration with Greenslade mainman Dave Greenslade, which culminated in the release of The Pentateuch, a double-album complete with 48-page book of illustrations.

Pallas say in a brief online statement: "We have some very sad news from the family of Patrick Woodroffe: 'After a short illness, Patrick died before 3am in the early hours of Saturday morning.' Our thoughts are with his family. We are honoured to have been associated with his amazing artwork." more on this story
