Here is how the band members explain where the title of the album comes from. Says Ron Wood: "[The title comes from] the granny flat that I built for my mum. Immediately Keith moved in and he did this hand-drawn sign, 'Doc's Office and Voodoo Lounge,' and stuck it in the window."
Keith Richards explained: "The record company's screaming at us, 'We need a title, an angle, artwork.' Then, suddenly, Mick turns around and says, 'Your sign.'" He added: "I'm the doc. It's like a ritual, a fetish... We agonized over (the title). And it was staring us in the face. Finally, it was Mick who said, 'What about Voodoo Lounge? Why not? Kind of like Beggars Banquet
. Right number of syllables.' I was really pissed with myself, though, after painting the sign and all. I'm usually the one with the cheap ideas, not Mick. His are usually real expensive."
