The Stones are just weeks away from their official 50th anniversary, and in honor of the milestone the band has updated their logo.

Shepard Fairey is responsible for the new lips logo that premiered yesterday (June 26th) on the bands official website and I think he did a fantastic job. The original logo, which premiered in 1971, was designed by John Pasche.

The Rolling Stones took the stage for the first time on July 12th 1962 at the Marquee Club in London and to commemorate the 50th anniversary a book titled 'Rolling Stones: 50' will be released on July 12th 2012.

We still haven't heard anything other tan rumors about a possible new album or a 50th anniversary tour from the Stones, so for now we will congratulate them on a long successful run and hope to hear something soon.
