Metallica Let Canadian Tribute Band Sandman License Their Logo For $1


Metallica recently tossed out a cease and desist letter sent to Canadian Metallica tribute band Sandman over their logo likeness. As Metallica themselves explained, the letter was sent without the consent of themselves or their management. Joe Di Taranto of Sandman has since told One On One With Mitch Lafon that Metallica gave the band a very generous licensing agreement for the logo:

“I just got off the phone with Metallica`s management and they and the band had no idea their lawyers sent us the C & D papers. Lars got wind of everything today and was completely pissed that they sent us the papers for `something so stupid` lol.

They are really sorry about everything and want us to go back to using any logos, etc. that we want. They are even going to license us the logo for $1 (which they said we don`t even need to pay lol).

So all in all they were really cool and wanted to make sure we know that they fully support us. Pretty crazy lol. All good though.”
