Who-Inspired Artwork to be Sold.

Forty-five pieces of artwork, all of which were inspired by the music of the Who, will be sold on an internet auction, according to the BBC. The artist, John Davis, died in 2006 in a car crash.

Davis began painting works inspired by the band upon his first listen to Tommy in 1969 — and the inspiration shows, as much of his work is similar to the illustrations found in the record sleeve. A sampling of his work can be found here.
