Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson, 1955-2010

Peter Christopherson, died peacefully in his sleep on 2010-11-24, aged 55. Affectionately known as “Sleazy”, he was a founding member of industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle, a founding member of Psychic TV and a founding member of one of my favourite bands, Coil. He was also an incredibly inventive graphic artist, responsible for some of the most recognized album covers (like Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here) and some truly amazing music videos. I can’t even begin to describe how influential he was.

Farewell, Peter. You are already sadly missed.
