About ten years ago, I worked with this know-it-all goth kid who was the "world's biggest H.R. Geiger fan."  He was going to get all tatted up with "Geiger's artwork" because he's such a HUGE fan.  He was even kind enough to tell me all about "H.R. Geiger" and that he was "the German guy" who "designed the alien and the predator." 

And then I turned into this guy...

But did he qualify as a "true" fan?

Q
Keep in mind, he was a goth kid.  He didn't cop to being an Alien fan.  He thought that sort of thing was only for geeks and he was too cool for that.  He was in a band too.  No, he was specifically an "H.R. Geiger" fan because he admired the art.

Quarantine fun: Have a conversation with a die-hard Giger fan about your love of Geiger and see how long you can hold the conversation before they realise you're talking about Hans Geiger the physicist (or stab you)

I know he wasn't there personally in '86 but I think it's obvious his work greatly influenced the way things were done.
