I'll wear a button, I'll wear a T shirt, I'll wear a bandana, I'll wear a thong if I have to, but nothing on earth would make me wear a "Hi my name is . . . " sticker. I would expire of shame.

if some people want to wear a badge/t-shirt/whatever.......why not have it say something like REMEMBERING BOBBY, BOBBY. BOBBY.

No real need to "advertise" IORR, is there?

I like the idea. He will truly be missed. And it's a good thing they invited Bobby back or we would probably be forbidden to talk about him. winking smiley

Cool! I see no need to wear badges/shirts/whatever to use the concerts as somewhat of an advert for this site. In my opinion, that's too overdone, too 'un-Stones-like'.

I think the idea behind having an identifiable button is not to advertise IORR, but to be able to identify and connect w/ other IORRians who'd also enjoy the opportunity to connect. Personally, I'd wear a button and wouldn't feel uncool or "un-stones-like" doing so. I'd also feel comfortable approaching someone wearing one because I'd know they'd be receptive to a greeting and perhaps a little chat w/ a fellow IORRian. In years past, I've attended many Stones gigs in other cities on my own, and it would have been nice to be able to spot folks with whom I have a little something in common. It's an ice-breaker.

The idea to remember Bobby is a lovely one, and I'd love to see people pay homage to him (or Stu, or Mac, or any other Stones-related artists who have passed) in any way they see fit, but expressing oneself in such a way is not particularly related to the idea behind the IORR graphic, IMO.

I agree Plink. We just want to be able to spot a fellow iorr person or we might miss out on the chance to chat a little while. :-)

I think CE's point was that there could be another unique common themed badge or T-Shirt or pin that would still serve to unite the IORR people without being so obvious and shall I say geeky eye popping smiley as a huge IORR as the main art. Bobby (RIP) was a great example of that but I could see other themes or good art doing the same thing, the "IORR" doesn't have to be the main attraction for those in the know.

I would make a suggestion but I'd likely come up with something like "wear zippered pants with the zipper down" and have all the iorr'ers walking around staring at crotches. eye popping smiley But... It could be something simple like Eddie Byword suggests, like wear a blue bandana tied around your arm or leg. (remember when that was stylish for Stones members and other hipsters?) and that would solve the problem of everyone scrambling to produce or procure something for the shows.

Jaybee came up w/ something nice in the San Diego thread a while back
link to his/her message: [www.iorr.org]

I assume Jaybee won't mind if I post his/her logo in this thread. If there are any objections, I'll remove it immediately

Thanks for posting this Plink. I actually emailed it to BV to ask what he thought of it and if it was ok to use it for stickers or buttons. Which might be why it prompted him to post a new thread about the original logo from 2007. I can fully understand he wanted to respect the designer who created that original logo back then. :-)

Oh, I wasn't advocating obviousness or geekiness (and I don't think Jaybees design occupies either realm) I just imagined an average sized button with a nice design that doesn't "scream", and I like the round "bullseye" eye composition and Stones tongue colors of Jaybees effort. Call me shallow, but I'm a fashion conscious gal & I actually put a little thought into my Stones gig outfits, so I wouldn't want to wear some ostentatious IORR insignia that competes. Personally, I'd be uninclined to tie a bandanna around a limb because I find that a wee bit "80s geeky". Different strokes, I guess! But you are absolutely correct about the importance of keeping ones pants zipped upgrinning smiley.

It would be nice to come to a consensus regarding an identifier, whatever form that may take. I'd wear whatever the majority deems suitable (provided it isn't obvious or geeky) winking smiley.

I just saw your post. Regarding your email communication w/ BV - is your design completely off the table now in favor of the original (provided permission is granted by the artist)? If so, I won't mention it again.

I like the button idea, but after we spent what felt like a thousand pages arguing about the T-shirt design, the style police seem to have decided that actually wearing one to a show was geeky (*sigh*).

Anyway, I won't be needing one for this tour (even bigger sigh).

Hi Plink! Well not really sure what's going on but I assume people will just do what they want to do. But, it's all good. Are you on the Field level for this concert at Petco? Hope to run into you. We bought the Start Me Up Experience pkg so we don't exactly know where we are sitting on the field just yet. But will let ya know!

Schillid, who made the original design, says "okay", so it means that design is the one I would still recommend. Many people do still have that design on their T-shirts, and it is the "current" IORR logo design, so that is the one I would recommend. Personally I don't like the new circular black & red, don't know why. This is the official IORR logo still:



Just for the history, there has been several versions of the "It's Only Rock'n Roll" logo:

Hey JayBee - It would be nice to run into you as well, but I'm planning to attend just the Summerfest gig (w/ Lucky dips, if my schedule allows). Opening night in SD will be great, I'm sure - have a blast!

Yes, the tattooed forehead / shaved head approach is the way to go - even Keef's on board...

Although the design isn't typically "Stonesy"... That's also what makes it useful in a crowd full of Stoneswear.

The best thing about the design that I did is that it really stands out in a big crowd.
