Notes:
-- David Browne painted this cover in mid 1992 and once again he acted out the part of the bad guy in the illustration. According to Browne, the concept of the painting represented his frustration with the models at that time, who were growing their hair and developing beer guts. (Source: the interview with British artist David Browne, conducted by Bob Finnan in 2003).
