Mick Jagger, about the Stones’ tongue logo (2015):
“That was designed by John Pasche. It became very identifiable with us. I don’t think bands really had logos before then. It was based on me a bit. I got the idea from this corner shop. It was run by an Indian guy and he had a calendar with the goddess Kali on it. Kali has a disembodied tongue and I thought it was a very striking image. I said to John, Can you do a modernised version of the disembodied tongue?, and that’s what he did.”
