The Rolling Stones are one of the most famous bands in history, and 2020 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic logo. The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first line-up consisted of bandleader Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica, keyboards), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar, vocals), Bill Wyman (bass), Charlie Watts (drums), and Ian Stewart (piano).
Mick Jagger commissioned Jon Pasche, who was then a young student at the Royal College of Art in London, to produce their new logo after seeing his designs at the Royal College of Art final degree show in 1970.
2020 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Roling Stones iconic tongue and lips logo. The band is one of the greatest rock bands in history, and paved the way for a huge shift in the music scene through the late 60's, and continue to do so today.
The logo itself was inspired by two factors, firstly the size and instantly recognizable mouth and lips of Mick Jagger, and secondly the Hindu Goddess Kali - the Divine Mother. Also known as Mother of the Universe, She is considered the divine protector and the one who bestows moksha, or liberation. A fitting symbol for the Stones' influence on the music scene.
