CLASSIC ALBUM COVERS GET A HOGWART'S TWIST

  
Eerie: It's as if Harry is channelling Freddie Mercury in this remake of Queen's second album cover

It's Harry as Freddie Mercury in this remake of Queen's second album cover.

  They might be best known as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, but now the Potter cast are taking on different alter egos on spoof album covers.
  
 Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are just three of the Harry Potter actors who have found themselves superimposed on the covers of classic albums, including Michael Jackson's Bad and David Bowie's Aladdin Sane.

   Using images of the actors from the most recent m ovie, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part II, a website has transformed them into subjects including Pink Floyd, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, The Ramones and Queen.


   One of the covers shows Dobby the house elf as one of the four members of Queen.
In another, Voldemort's army star as The Ramones

   Professor Snape, played by Alan Rickman, stars as Elvis on the spoof cover of his record '68 Comeback, complete with leather jacket and guitar.
