The artwork for Saxon’s latest studio album by Paul Raymond Gregory has been created on a much larger canvas than normal, similar in size to the cover he did for Rock the Nation (40 x 50 inches 102 x 127 cm).

The original artwork for ‘Thunderbolt’ Paul’s eighteenth cover for the band was first shown in the RAM gallery at Bloodstock in 2017. As part of the exhibition Paul decided to commission two Saxon inspired guitars by talented Luthier Cynosure who also films the build process 

The guitars and Paul’s huge and ever growing collection of original artwork will now form part of his next project to create a permanent venue for art and music.


(Thunderbolt) yet another great album from my good mates Saxon. Creating covers for the band over the years has always been a privilege and great fun.

Thunderbolt is my 18th cover for Saxon roll on 30.
