Hello Katy, I was wondering who created the awesome insignia that was on the mainsail of the DRUM? What exactly is it, a bird of some sort? Is there a story behind it (like swiftness of the boat)? I think I still have the huge (5 foot by 4 foot) banner I brought to one of the concerts that I copied the logo onto, and for some reason was thinking about it this morning.
HI JEN. THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION, SO I CHECKED IN WITH SIMON AND THIS IS WHAT HE HAS TO SAY ABOUT IT: "IT WAS A DESIGN BY MALCOLM GARRET OF 'ASSORTED IMAGES' WHO DESIGNED THE "RIO" ALBUM COVER. THE BIRD WAS ADAPTED FROM AN ANCIENT MAYAN EAGLE MOTIF AND SOON BECAME KNOWN TO THE CREW OF DRUM AS THE BIG CHICKEN. s"
