Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler officially sent Republican front runner Donald Trump a cease-and-desist letter to stop playing their “Dream On” track (stop playing their damn song) in his campaign bid! This is the third time they told him to stop it; the first time was in Mobile, Ala. on a campaign rally on August 21. They ignored the warning.
Coincidentally, Tyler and group mate guitarist Joe Perry are registered Republicans. Tyler actually attended the August rally, but did not give permission to Trump to use their music. Tyler’s lawyer says that the cease-and-desist is not personal or political just an issue of permission and copyright. Check out details of the letter and more below…
The rock legend’s lawyers have sent Trump a cease-and-desist letter saying that the candidate’s use of the song “gives a false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid.”
Tyler’s lawyers warn that “If Trump for President does not comply with our demands, our client will be forced to pursue any and all legal or equitable remedies which our client may have against you.” – fortune
I believe it is an absolute contradiction to his person and his real ambitions to be a president. Trump’s absurd ranting against Mexican immigrants is a real scary thought based on thriving off American ignorance; which is unhealthy and ridiculous. We want a good president, that can satisfy the people and attempt to make legislation to help the nation advance towards the future.
This is not Trump’s first attempt at playing songs that contradict his platform and his being as well as without permission: When he first announced his candidacy he actually used Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” (which is absolutely ridiculous) and later using R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of The World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine).” Young outright declared himself a political liberal and vowed his support for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.
Trump campaign is a joke; its worse than Lebron seeming humble and going back to Cleveland.
