Whats a good nickname for those who buy a Stones shirt at Target but can not name one member of the band?

jb

Suckahs.
Bandwagoners.
Latecomers.

T@3

Latecomers can still be genuine fans. The Target mob are shirt fans, not Stones fans.

I think in the early days there was fanzine talk of being various sized rocks (based on how big a fan you were), you were a pebble, on up to a boulder, etc., but that clearly didn't stick....unless it was never a thing and was just rumor buzz? I seem to remember the boys were asked about it on an interview CD I've got somewhere.

When I was growing up in my neighborhood, anybody that was a serious Stones fan was referred to as a "Stones Freak" which I think fit.

However, in commemorating (and tying in) this years 50th anniversary of arguably one of the most iconic and unique corporate logos of the 20th century (that is just as recognizable as Coke, McDonalds, and Nike),

I hereby dub the new nickname for Stones fans as "Tonguesters" (LOL) embodying that rebellious spirit of this famous logo:

Glimmers is not a proposal it is the correct answer.

In use since at least the first Glimmer Gathering at Giants Stadium for the Voodoo Lounge tour. Used consistently on Undercover and elsewhere for decades

Coined by Debbie Tiger? Shoiley? Not sure

I'm pretty sure that the first Glimmer Gathering was at Bill's Sticky Fingers in London, probably in 1993. (Needs double checking).

I have been calling myself a Stoneshead since about 1989.I even made up a joke about this about 20 years ago. What is the difference between a Stoneshead and a Deadhead? Stonesheads have jobs.
