Surprise! Another Metallica Lawsuit

According to TMZ:

Metallica Corp. is filing a lawsuit against Fernandes Guitars. Rob Trujillo is and has been endorsed by Fernandes and receives custom basses. The problem lies in the fact that Metallica is endorsed by ESP Guitars. See the problem? Now that he is officially apart of the Metallica Corporation, Metallica is suing Fernandes for using the image and likeness of Rob for promoting Fernandes guitars.

I’d like to see someone trying to tell Zakk Wylde, from Ozzy and Black Label Society, that he no longer allowed to play out on His Gibson Customs. Musicians create their sound, their edge through the instruments they play, and changing them does make a difference. I feel for Rob.
