Who's Bad is the World's #1 Michael Jackson Tribute Band. We are in dire need of a new logo/image that will convey the energy we bring to stage, and if possible, will also show that we are a tribute to the King of Pop. The issue is finding the right iconic image that will convey both of these things. We have tried in the past to show that we are a full sized band, with a horn section, within our logo but the logo ends up looking too busy.
I personally feel that we need to simplify and create an image that just looks "cool". The logo has to be something that I would be proud to wear around town. It also needs to be something that someone who knows nothing about our band would see and would think to themselves, "That's a cool looking logo.. I want a t-shirt!".
I think to successfully do this, we could incorporate a little bit of Michael Jackson's image but mostly get creative with the "idea" of Michael Jackson's style (color schemes, etc). If you can think of an image that subtly hints at Michael Jackson and incorporate it into the text of "Who's Bad?" that may work. Additionally, if there's one iconic image (fedora hat, moonwalk, glove, etc) that you can tastefully incorporate into the logo, that could work as well.
