Description

SANDMAN – The Only Sanctioned Metallica Tribute

 

They’ve been around since 1994, and bill themselves as “Canada’s Top Metallica Tribute Band.” But the local group Sandman made some international headlines of its own recently. This came after they were slapped with a cease and desist letter from the lawyers of Metallica themselves, pertaining to copyright infringement, “for using official, stylized logos to identify, or promote musical performances through Facebook and YouTube.” Sandman had been using the same logo since 2003 (from Metallica’s St. Anger album), so this all came as a surprise when they rolled in to a gig at a London, Ont. club. “The owner came around and said, ‘I have something for you,’” relates Rick Van Dyk, the group’s Mississauga-based bandleader, and singer/rhythm guitarist. "He had this FedEx package. It was a 41-page cease and desist letter.”
