Madden Lands Top Artist For Album Cover
GOOD CHARLOTTE's new album CARDIOLOGY will feature cover art from reclusive artist DANIEL MARTIN DIAZ after bassist BENJI MADDEN wrote to him and asked him to consider a commission.
The rocker was thrilled when his art idol replied - because he rarely accepts album cover jobs.
Madden says, "He's my favourite artist in the world. He does religion-based pop-surrealism. A lot of people approach him to design album covers, but he hasn't done one in over 10 years.
"I blindly emailed him... on his website. I told him that I was in a dark place during our last record, but that in the last two years I fell in love with music all over again.
"He came down and listened to some rough mixes and agreed to do it. It's my dream come true."
