Overview
 
The development of the music business in the second half of the 20th Century was closely connected with aviation. Numerous performers and musical groups toured not only within their own country, but internationally: having gained wide public popularity, ambitious performers had to make a world tour in support of their newly released album or single. Constrained by the necessity of flying from Europe to the Americas and back, a group's managers were obliged to work out the optimum tour route to cover as many cities in a given country as possible. It was no surprise that the airplane was the best means of transport over long distances. In the mid-Sixties, the Rolling Stones for their tour to the USA hired a Super Constellation plane, and on its fuselage was placed the group's distinctive 'tongue and lip' logo.
