Real estate mogul turned potential president of the United States of America – yes, we know how scary this sounds – was the target of a certain letter in which Tyler declines he ever gave Trump the permission to use his band’s ‘Dream On’ song at the candidate’s campaign events.
According to E! News, the letter reads: “Trump for President does not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of our client’s other music in connection with the campaign because it gives the false impression that Tyler is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid.”
Stephen Tyler’s attorneys also said that this was not the first, but the second time they’ve sent a letter to Donald Trump’s office pleading for them to stop using the musician’s song. Dina LaPolt, one of Tyler’s attorneys, said:
“Steven wrote 100% of ‘Dream On,’ and this is about the unauthorized use of his property. Steven is a registered Republican.”
Aside from Aerosmith, Trump has also used Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ for his campaign, with the singer does not approve of.
