"Ernie Cefalu was the internet for music long before the internet existed. In a world where we had the music and only the album cover to stare at, Ernie provided us with a magical gateway into the music.”

You may not know Ernie Cefalu by name, but no doubt you have seen his work countless times. If you are a lover of music and were born any time after 1950, you've seen his work. If you were a child of the 50's, 60's, or 70's, you've spent more time staring at his accomplishments than you realize. The Rolling Stones, The Guess Who, David Bowie, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, The Bee Gees, Aerosmith, Jefferson Airplane, Earth, Wind and Fire and Mama Cass Elliot are just some of the artists Ernie Cefalu, owner of Pacific Eye & Ear has designed album covers for.

On display, among masterpieces such as "Welcome To My Nightmare" by Alice Cooper that Ernie collaborated on with Drew Sturzan (now the #1 Most Collected Artist In The World renowned for over 150 movie posters), "Rocks" by Aerosmith, Jesus Christ Superstar’s “Angels”, will be Ernie’s original design of the iconic Rolling Stones “Tongue Logo”.
