Gap Steal Judas Priest Artwork
US clothing retailer Gap is selling a kids' t-shirt featuring graphics stolen from Judas Priest, says Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher. He's pointed out that a two-tone shirt bearing a metal eagle on an orange oval background looks dramatically similar to the album cover of Priest's "Screaming For Vengeance" album, due for its 30th anniversary release in September. Kelliher says via his Tumblr feed: "Leave it to the Gap to steal ideas for kid t-shirts. Seriously poor taste." It's not the first time Gap have been accused of plagiarism. Another clothing firm last month launched a lawsuit against them, alleging they recycled two designs they had not created. Last year a photographer revealed how the chain had used his photo of an E-type Jaguar for a kids' thermal onesie. Meanwhile, Priest frontman Rob Halford says work on their first album since the departure of Kk Downing is going well. He tells Billboard how new recruit Ritchie Faulkner is taking the lead at the moment: "He was taking this little mini-studio into his dressing room and we could hear him riffing away. It's going to be really thrilling moment to get together in a new writing dimension, putting all these ideas together. We'll see what we can do over the next couple of months, look at everything, lay it all out and then start the hard work of picking out the best material."
