not ever. we are marketing ourselves to make money so we play the "commerical radio" hair rock stuff. I like to tell people we're a cuddly poster on your sisters wall hair band like Cheap Trick, Def Leppard.... not scary metal like Judas Priest, W.A.S.P. or Metallica. Although the heavier stuff is what I like best, in this market it relegates you to playing the small rooms that don't want to pay. I can blast Sabbath in my mp3 when I'm riding my bike.
Consider that it needs to be easily read and not overly elaborate.
It loses a bit of readability when it is reduced in size. I think it is because of the muted colors and texture inside the text characters. On the other hand, the brightness of the O greatly enhances the logo when the image is reduced in size.

I really like it, but as a logo it has a lot of graphical elements that will only work in full color and with the background.
For example, the halo gradients wouldn't transfer to an embroidered logo or on a white background. One easy way to test a logo against that kind of thing is to make it monochrome and see if it's still clear.

have you tried some color in it? Maybe "Rock of Ages" in some neon effect with the sunburst? I can see what you mean by "Rock of Ages", but given the fact that it's a well-known hymn, some people might confuse you with a Christian rock group, and I don't think that's where you're coming from.
