Veteran rocker Peter Frampton has launched legal action against Australian surf clothing company BILLABONG.

The BABY, I LOVE YOUR WAY singer is furious the firm are planning to use phrase 'Baby I Love Your Waves' and his image on a new bathing suit line called FRAMPTON.

According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, Frampton is seeking unspecified damages from Billabong after seeing the swimsuit and complaining about other items including a T-Shirt and "rash guard" also bearing his image.

Billabong have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
