Shepard Fairey Updates The Rolling Stones' Tongue Logo
Nearly iconic as The Rolling Stones themselves is the band's decades old tongue logo. Sketched by John Pasche in 1971, the imitation of Mick Jagger's mouth graced the Sticky Fingers album before becoming the group's official insignia. To celebrate the Stones' 50th anniversary, Sir Mick tapped Shepard Fairey to update the design. The artist revamped the logo with subtle changes like sharpened lines and glossier hue. Though his version includes the band's name and the number 50, the trademark tongue remains the central image, with all of its red hot suggestive glory.
