Earlier this week, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler asked Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to stop using the Boston band’s 1973 hit “Dream On’’ at campaign events.
Tyler’s attorneys even went so far as to send two cease-and-desist letters to the Trump campaign saying Trump does ‘‘not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of Tyler’s other songs’’ and that it ‘‘gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid.’’
On Wednesday, Trump responded, in a very Trump way.
Even though I have the legal right to use Steven Tyler’s song, he asked me not to. Have better one to take its place!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2015
Steven Tyler got more publicity on his song request than he’s gotten in ten years. Good for him!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2015
