Logos That Stick
Iconic logos for artists such as AC/DC, the Beatles, Heart, the Rolling Stones, and Run-D.M.C. add magic to the music
Logos have been a part of popular music dating back to the early days of jazz when floor-mounted bass drums provided a convenient canvas on which a group could be identified. In 1963 London drum shop owner Ivor Arbiter literally made a name for the Beatles when he created the capital “B”/dropped “T” design that graced Ringo Starr’s bass drums and is still in use today on Beatles merchandise.
Happy Birthday to 14-time GRAMMY winner Paul McCartney!
