fans have started an online petition to bring artist Derek Riggs
back into the fold.
As Classic Rock
reports, Riggs, who illustrated the band's iconic artwork for 20 years, has not worked with Maiden since 2000. It's a situation that fans like Derek Tigner
, who started the petition, would like to see reversed: "Derek Riggs' artwork and visual direction is second to none. Many fans view his artwork to be as influential as the music Maiden produces. Things haven't been the same since he stopped being their exclusive artist - so we plead with the band to bring him back for any future artwork needs."
His petition, which requires 2000 signatures, has already reached 1600. You can check it out here
