The Rolling Stones Unveil 50th Anniversary Logo
This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones, who formed in 1962 as a blues cover band in London. Though Jagger, Richards and company haven’t performed together since 2007, everyone has been expecting something from the band to commemorate their golden anniversary.
The band recently unveiled a 50th anniversary version of their iconic tongue logo that was designed by renowned street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey. Fairey is most commonly known as the man behind OBEY’s Andre the Giant logo, as well as the one who designed the “Hope” poster that became popular during Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Last week, Rolling Stone reported that the band would be meeting in London to plan out at least one show later this year. They will also supposedly discuss recording a new album to follow up their 2005 release, A Bigger Bang, as well as a potential 2013 tour.
