Phil Collins, 1988 – Unfortunately we couldn’t find anything larger than this thumbnail image of Collins donning a coon-skin hat. KRS-One, 1990 – For his poster, hip hop pioneer KRS-One held a copy of How Europe Underdeveloped Africa. Michael Stipe & co. hold various titles and look angsty in their ripped jeans.
