Keith Richards about the ‘Voodoo Lounge’ album name (1994): “The record company’s screaming at us, ‘We need a title, an angle, artwork.’ Then, suddenly, Mick turns around and says, ‘Your sign.'” He added: “I’m the doc. It’s like a ritual, a fetish… We agonized over (the title). And it was staring us in the face. Finally, it was Mick who said, ‘What about Voodoo Lounge? Why not? Kind of like Beggars Banquet. Right number of syllables.’ I was really pissed with myself, though, after painting the sign and all. I’m usually the one with the cheap ideas, not Mick. His are usually real expensive.”
