Judas Priest Considering Legal Action GAP T-Shirt Design
According to Judas Priest singer Rob Halford, the heavy-metal legends are considering legal action against clothing retailer the GAP over a T-shirt design–which has since been removed from the company’s website–that bears an undeniable resemblance to the cover art of the band’s classic album, Screaming For Vengeance. Check out the GAP design, pictured below to the left, and let us know what you think in the comments.
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.”
