Iron Maiden: online petition, " bring back Derek Riggs"


A group of fans launched an online petition to ask the Iron Maiden to give back the exclusivity on the artwork to the artist Derek Riggs, mascot Eddie inventor and creator of all the covers the band's history from the beginning up to "No Prayer For The Dying" (1990).
Below the description of the petition:

"It is important to countless fans all of the world because Derek Riggs artwork and visual direction is second to none. Many fans view his artwork to be as influential as the music IRON MAIDEN produces. Things haven't been the same since he stopped being IRON MAIDEN'S exclusive artist, so we plead with the band to bring him back for any future artwork needs."

"I think once we get home, the ideas are going to start brewing," Vengeance predicts. "I know Syn's been writing a ton purely for fun, trying different styles, recording backstage, keeping himself busy. I've been thinking of all sorts of ideas, listening to tons of different music to get inspiration -- as have all of us. And being on tour, I'm so inspired. Seeing bands like Body Count with Ice-T out there, they're so old-school and riff-based and over the top and slightly offensive and it's f---in' awesome. So there's tons of inspiration that I know we'll be drawing from."
