Our ten favourite uses of the Rolling Stones tongue…

In 1971, John Pasche, a budding young British artist, was commissioned by the Rolling Stones to produce a logo intended to be used as the album artwork for Sticky Fingers. After meeting Mick Jagger for the first time, Pasche was inspired to come up with the now infamous lips and tongue design by the “size of his lips and mouth”. Voted in 2008 as the Greatest Band Logo of all time, and widely credited as the first ‘rock brand marketing’, the iconic design has been celebrated, for better or worse, in some zany ways over the past forty years. We celebrate our favourite here, and now!
