After the death of Charlie Watts
Famous Rolling Stones tongue logo turns black
The Rolling Stones will honor Charlie Watts in a special way. When they go on tour their world famous logo will look different.
The next gigs of the Rolling Stones are coming up. Mick Jagger (78), Keith Richards (77) and Ronnie Wood (74) will honor their deceased bandmate Charlie Watts (1941-2021) in a special way. The group’s world famous logo will no longer look like it did before.
As the British newspaper “The Sun” reports, the band will no longer show their iconic tongue logo in red, but in black. The new design should therefore not only be projected onto large screens, but also be shown on merchandise products. In addition, the band wants to bring in archive material with Watts for the shows.
An anonymous source told the Sun: Jagger, Richards and Wood didn’t want the concert to drag people down. “Because they know the fans paid a lot of money to see them.” But it feels “just right for the musicians to address Charlie’s death because he was such an important part of the band and it will be strange for all of them not to have him”.
According to the report, Watts’ bandmates could not attend the musician’s funeral last week due to corona restrictions. He had died in August at the age of 80. The Stones’ “No Filter” tour is set to continue on September 26th in St. Louis, Missouri.
