Metallica let license logo to tribute band Sandman for $1


Metallica Canadian tribute band Sandman recently received a cease and desist from 'Metallica'. The band explained that the letter was sent without their permission. Sandman's Joe Di Taranto recently talked with One On One With Mitch Lafon saying:


"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."
