Bands and musical acts from all over the world are often recognized based on their logo. The Rolling Stones have the mouth, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have their Asterick and AC/DC has the Lighting Bolt. While many of these logos are known, the story and meaning behind them are for the most part unknown.
The Give Me Back My Wig Band logo was designed by Drummer Glen Maiden in March of 2001. When approached by his band mates after the presence of a fan at their rehearsals, in the early days. Apparently this fan was completely bald always sporting sunglasses and later it was learned he was homeless. After reheasals band members would see that he receive the reminding food from the craft table. Band members quickly give him the name "WIG MAN". He became the inspiration for the band logo, bald man with sunglasses. Their WIG MAN logo was born it is easily recognizable symbol of the band.
The first time this logo appeared was on a fler made for a release party of the bands first CD "Not In Public" in 2001. And it was a few years later the band name was incorpated with the WIG MAN symbol. This came with the release of the "Last Minute Blues" CD in 2008 gain world wide air play. The band quickly gained popularly in Los Angeles and over the west coast recognized by the southern Californa Blues community. The logo symbolize the dominance and supremacy bearing a string resemblance of their first fan the "WIG MAN".
March 2016 bench marked the 15th. anniversary of their logo.
