The Mid West’s favoured 70’s rock icon, Peter Frampton is to sue surf wear clothiers Billabong over a line of garments which features the slogan ‘Baby I Love Your Waves’ and also sports his image.
Frampton is claiming that the items – which include bikinis and rash guard surf tops – are a direct and ‘obvious reference’ to his hit song ‘Baby I Love Your Way’, which your parents probably liked. Rather damningly for Billabong, the clothing line is called ‘Frampton’. Duh.
The lawsuit is for unspecified damages, but expect any victory for The Framp to run into a large wad of cash.
Peter Frampton is famous for his humungous-selling live album ‘Frampton Comes Alive’, a giant inflatable pig and making his guitar ‘talk’.
