Top 10 Album Covers Created by Musicians

Some musicians are pretty good even at their hobby (drawing / painting).

Some of them created covers for other music artists/bands and not only for their own albums.
The Top Ten
1 Relics - Pink Floyd

Original cover design by Nick Mason, drummer for Pink Floyd (some re-issues had different covers but what you see is the original by Nick Mason)

2 The Who by Numbers - The Who

Drawings by their bassist John Entwistle

3 Crossroads - Eric Clapton

Who painted this album cover? Ronnie Wood, the Rolling Stones guitarist.

4 Walls and Bridges - John Lennon
5 Cacophony - Rudimentary Peni

Artwork done by singer/guitarist Nick Blinko. Actually, he does all of their album covers. Cacophony is one of my favorites.

6 Urn - Ne Obliviscaris

A modern metal cover of 2017. It was created by Xenoyr, their lead singer and lyricist (his real name is Marc Campbell).
