    Default Nick Mason's Drum Heads 1969-1971

    So recently I was thinking of having some custom t-shirts made out of Nick's various drum head designs, but haven't yet found any good pictures of them. I did find this compilation of them on the sparebricks website:

    All of these heads appeared at the "Their Mortal Remains" exhibition, along with these ones:
    attachment-5i2a0553-copy.jpg

    While watching a video walkthrough of the exhibition, I found that the Pharaoh heads premiered on 8 August 1969, and obviously, the other heads are the ones from Pompeii that we all know and love. However, the placard next to the Pompeii heads also says that Nick had some "star heads" as well, so I'm wondering if anyone has any info on those?

    With making t-shirts in mind, I was wondering if anyone has any good pictures of these heads from TMR, or any good pictures of them from live shows?

    Also, any information on the "Star Heads" would be helpful as well.

    EDIT: I just realized that the "Star Heads" are in the bottom left of the collage above.

    Not sure if it's helpful, but I *think* the star heads were a first half of 1971 thing? I always think of Hamburg Feb 1971 and Austria July 1st 1971 anyway. My memory could be faulty as well.

    The shirts are a cool idea!

    The star heads were in Hamburg 1971, but by July 1st he had switched to the Pompeii Heads. What would probably be best is if I could identify the dates that the pictures in the collage came from, and then see if there were any color photos from that date.

    I hope the shirts will come out well, I may even make some custom drum heads to match.

    BTW, are there any good online photo galleries of PF shows that anyone would recommend?

    I believe bottom left is, I think, Crystal Palace 1971. Top left of course is Pompeii. Not sure about top right, other than it's 1969.

    The waves look like a Katsushika Hokusai illustration called The Great Wave off Kanagawa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gr...e_off_Kanagawa
