Andy Warhol was een muziekliefhebber. Hij maakte vriendschappen met muzikanten als the Rolling Stones, the Velvet Underground en anderen. Bekijk de 10 album covers ontworpen door Andy Warhol en je zult zien dat de man een zeer getalenteerd illustrator was en iconische covers heeft ontworpen waar we vandaag de dag nog steeds van mogen genieten.
