Stones lips slurp up £250,000 | | Guardian Unlimited Arts
The original artwork for the Rolling Stones’ iconic tongue and lips logo sold yesterday for £250,000 at auction in London.

The work was one of 160 lots to go under the hammer at the It’s More Than Rock ‘n’ Roll auction yesterday.

A spokeswoman for promoter Magnum Communications said the band’s guitarist Ronnie Wood and former bass player Bill Wyman both watched the sale at the Sound venue in London’s Leicester Square.

A Fender Stratocaster guitar owned by Jimi Hendrix also went for £60,000 and a black bustier worn by Madonna on her Who’s That Girl tour sold for £5,000
