Posted on: September 4th, 2008 Original Rolling Stones Logo Sold
Who knew some tongue could cost so much. Over the weekend a London museum purchased the original Rolling Stones’ tongue-and-lips logo for $92,500. “The Tongue” was created by John Pasche in 1970 and first showed up on 1971’s Sticky Fingers, in what was perhaps one of the first cases of rock brand marketing. When approached by Mick Jagger to create a logo for the Stones, Pasche once said “Face to face with him, the first thing you were aware of was the size of his lips and his mouth”. The logo will be showcased at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
