Logo #181: Death
Designed by Charles Michael "Chuck" Schuldiner (May 13, 1967 – December 13, 2001) in 1984. What an intensely morbid blahg this has become lately! Well, fiddle-dee-dee - it's just a coincidence; conversely, there aren't many rock band logos that contain puppies or poppies or other cosmic manifestations of ur-cuddliness. The logo ultimately became slightly more ornate and detailed, like a bored student's Pee Chee folder doodled into oblivion. Chuck ultimately died of a brain-stem tumor. He was also the father of death metal. Talk about living the dream! Richard Christy, drummer on three LPs by Death, is one of our most gifted prank callers working today.
