The “dream” is over?
Remember when Heart asked then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin to stop playing “Barracuda” at her campaign events? Well, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump got the same message from Aerosmith frontman, Steven Tyler — stop playing “Dream On.”
And he’s using his attorneys to do it.
In a letter sent Saturday, the law firm said that the real estate developer does “not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’” or any of Tyler’s other songs as it “gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid,” according to The Associated Press.
In a statement released Saturday, attorney Dina LaPolt said that the issue is one of permission and copyright infringement and not personal.
Fortune magazine reported:
The incident marks the third time that the billionaire real estate mogul has been confronted by musicians about using their songs for his campaign. When Trump announced his candidacy for president, his campaign played Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World,” a song whose lyrics are at odds with Trump’s politics. Young, known to be a political liberal, demanded that Trump stop using his song and declared his support for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. Trump also used R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” prompting the band to issue a statement that disapproved of the song’s use and warned against grandstanding politicians who “distract us from the pressing issues.”
