GAP "Borrows" JUDAS PRIEST Image For A T-Shirt; Band Considering Legal Action!
JUDAS PRIEST's Rob Halford has announced that the Metal icons are considering legal action against clothing retailer the GAP over a T-shirt design (the image been removed from the company’s website as a result) that is almost an identical copy of the cover art of the band’s classic album, 'SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE'.
Speaking to The Quietus, Halford commented, “Well, it’s very naughty of [GAP]. They shouldn’t have done that and we’re investigating that right now because that’s intellectual-property rights. We were never asked, neither was our label. Having said that, pushing the legal side of it to one side, it’s brilliant, isn’t it? To think that something 30-odd years later is still striking enough to be a fashion moment.”
The design can be seen above. Let us know what you think at the comments section below.
Recently, JUDAS PRIEST unleashed the 'SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE – SPECIAL 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION'! This very special release contains not only the re-mastered original album plus bonus tracks, but also a live DVD from the 1983 US Festival show, filmed in San Bernadino CA on 29th May 1983.
