The Rolling Stones unveil anniversary logo

mainCould it be the first step toward a tour?

The Rolling Stones have unveiled a new tongue logo to commemorate their 50th anniversary, an updated design presented by artist Shepard Fairey.

The iconic logo was first seen in 1971 on the band’s “Sticky Fingers” album sleeve; the design came from John Pasche, then a student at Royal College of Art in London.

Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone magazine that he often marvels at the five decades the band has endured.

“It’s a very different group than the one that played 50 years ago,” he said. “When I think about it, one part of me goes, ‘We’re slightly cheating,’ because it’s not the same band – still the same name, but it’s only Keith and myself that are the same people, I think. I’ve tried to find out when Charlie [Watts'] first gig was [but can't]. But it’s an amazing achievement. It’s fantastic and I’m very proud of it.”

Rumors have persisted for more than a year of a commemorative tour, but the band has yet to commit.

But the Stones will reportedly meet next month to discuss live dates and perhaps a new album.
