Savatage / Trans-Siberian Orchestra guitarist Chris Caffery has checked in with tan update on his forthcoming solo album, The Jester's Court:
"A little bird just told me that this is going to be my next album cover!
It is an honor to have this piece of art from the Russian master artist Vladimir Barkov for the cover of The Jester's Court. I wanted a special image that really captured the spirit of this album and I stumbled upon this painting while searching Jesters on Google. It not only looks like me but it pins the meaning of the title in the image. This man is a true genius. I've seen many more of his works and they are amazing!
I've gotten to know him as a friend here and not only is he an amazing artist he is a very kind person with a genuinely passionate soul for the arts. I look forward to working together with him more in the future!
It's a great day!"
