Poster Inspiration: The Rolling Stones

While 'The Rolling Stones' are a iconic and old band, they have created an iconic image which has been used over and over.
When analysing this poster one let down could be the fact that the bend themselves were not actually on the poster, while their star image is quite a notable one it might not be one that is seen straight away. However this photo is a big part of iconography with this image used all over the world, when any one from any audience and genre preference first see this image they generally first think of the rolling stones.
This is the upside to iconography, the audience know the rolling stones and even if they didn't they could infer that this is a poster for a rock band and the tongue and lip facial expression is a classic in the rock world.
