Rolling Stones ‘to change iconic logo colour’ in tribute for late Charlie Watts

The Rolling Stones will reportedly change their famous tongue logo from red to black in memory of Charlie Watts following his death.

Sir Mick Jagger, 78, Keith Richards, 77, and Ronnie Wood, 74, have decided to change the famous logo as a tribute to the drummer who died last month at the age of 80.

According to The Sun, the new logo will be projected onto screens on the tour and will also be used on the band's merchandise.

A source said: “They don't want it to be a concert that is a downer because they know fans have paid good money to see them.

“But it feels only right that they referenced Charlie's passing because he was such a vital part of the band and it will be strange for them all to not have him there.

“They think the plans make for a fitting tribute.”

The members of The Rolling Stones were reportedly forced to miss Charlie’s funeral last week in Devon due to Covid restrictions.

The group remained in Boston where they are rehearsing for their rescheduled world tour which begins on September 26 in St Louis, Missouri.

Sam Cutler, the band's former tour manager said it was fitting to learn his funeral had been private and believes he would have hated 'the fuss' that involving the public would have brought.

Writing about Charlie in The Mirror, Sam said he hated touring especially the fact he had to leave his house in order to play.

He added that the star was completely devoted to his wife Shirley and would spend all his money on tour on phone calls with her.

He wrote: “Theirs was a dreamily harmonious and loving relationship of mutual respect based upon the undeniably deep bonds of one another’s hearts.

“They showed us all how to commit to the dream of love. Charlie loved Shirley with an abiding sincerity and passion his whole life.”

Sam added: “Charlie, was in some senses, an anomaly. In the entertainment industry where bluster, fluster and muster are all, Charlie remained quietly confident, almost serene in his laid-back attitude, and possessed of an evergreen sense of humour.”

The musician died on August 24 with a statement saying he had “passed away peacefully in hospital surrounded by his family”.
