This is obviously NOT a picture of Kevin Reagan. I can’t really recall offhand what Kevin Reagan looks like, but I’m sure I’d recognize him if I saw a photo of him. However, I looked all over the internet and couldn’t find a photo of him. I remember when he brought this autographed CD cover into the Coffee Shop.   I’d never heard of the Samples, but I liked the design.  I did find a website, www.kevinreagandesign.com and lots of references to his many CD cover designs for pretty well known musicians like Madonna, Bon Jovi, Pat Metheny, Sonic Youth and Guns N’ Roses. He also co-authored a beautiful Coffee Table book about album cover design, called Alex Steinweiss: Creator of the Modern Album Cover.  The limited edition book is available on Amazon for $1000.  He also designed the book, The Surreal Gourmet: Real Food for Pretend Chefs which was written by another Hollywood Hills neighbor, Bob Blumer.
