Back in the 1980s, Doug Johnson did some fantastic artwork for 3 Judas Priest album covers: 1982's "Screaming for Vengeance," 1984's "Defenders of the Faith," and 1986's "Turbo." For some reason, this morning, when we woke up, we just thought about how rad all this art was, and wanted to see if anybody else remembers these. Doug Johnson... dude had metal down.
