Featured here is the original painting by graphic artist Dave McMacken, who created this masterpiece in 1973.

Dave McMacken; "On a stormy night in 1973, Frank called me and told me the sorted tale of his band on the road. He asked me if I could paint it in a dark 'Dutch Master' style, where all parts are symbols of his tale. I immediately jumped at it and this became the final result".

The impressive work of art is casein painted on board and measures 24 x 41 inches. It has been professionally framed.

The painting was offered for sale on BackStageAuctions in 2010.
