Did you know that the inflatable pig called Algie from the Animals album artwork was made by Zeppelin? After the original pig flew away by accident, the Heathrow airport traffic had to be disrupted for four hours for safety reasons? Did you know that Nick Mason was paid just the same amount of money for driving Auto Union Type D, that the original test driver earned in the 1930s? Nick was even paid in the old Nazi German currency, the Reichsmarks. Did you know that the beds used as the artwork for A Momentary Lapse Of Reason are real and there were about 800 of them?
