I am delighted to be hosting this exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall in celebration of my 80th birthday. Having worked on the artwork for some of the most talented musicians during my career it now seems only fitting that this milestone exhibition is being held at the one of the world’s greatest music venues. I hope people enjoy this print retrospective as much as I have
