Mick Jagger Pays Tribute To Andy Warhol In Pittsburgh

Mick Jagger has paid tribute to Pittsburgh’s own Andy Warhol, who designed the iconic Rolling Stones ‘Sticky Fingers’ cover.

“Lots of things come from Pittsburgh. You invented the Big Mac, Pull Tabs, and Andy Warhol comes from here! He did the artwork for Sticky Fingers, which we recorded 59 years ago today…and we’re going to do a couple of songs from that.” Mick Jagger said launching into the Fingers track ‘Bitch’.

Warhol was born in Pittsburgh in 1928. He died in 1987 at age 57. Pittsburgh is also home now to the Andy Warhol Museum.

Andy Warhol designed two Stones album covers. As well as ‘Sticky Fingers’ he also designed the cover for the 1977 live album ‘Love You Live’.

The ‘Sticky Fingers’ album cover featured a male man’s crotch, modeled by one of Warhol’s film stars Joe Dallesandro. At the time Australia banned the original cover featuring an actual zipper than could be unzipped and replaced it with a still photograph of the international artwork. The cover was also banned in Spain.
