, 1975. Yes. Art by Roger Dean.

The Kids Are Alright

Gimme Shelter, 1970. The Rolling Stones.

The Song Remains the Same, 1976 (Japanese). Led Zeppelin.

Get Down Grand Funk, 1970 (originally released as Mondo Daytona in 1968). Grand Funk Railroad.

Gorgeous! Mark Farner from Grand Funk was my first 'crush' I was about 7 - sigh. Seriously great posters. Thanks.

I still think that The Kids Are Alright is the best Rock movie ever made.
