No Aerosmith Classics At Rallies

After sending a “cease and desist” letter to the White House telling Donald Trump to stop playing Aerosmith songs during his rallies, Steven Tyler took to Twitter to speak up about the legal action he has undertaken. He made it clear that it wasn’t political (Tyler himself is a republican) – the reason behind his move was because of his stance against music theft.

To put it simply, he didn’t want anyone using his music without permission.

He even added that this is one of the main reasons he’s been a strong advocate for the Music Modernization Act. He ended his tweet by saying: “NO IS A COMPLETE SENTENCE.”

Steven Tyler’s team has already clarified that “Trump needs our client’s express written permission in order to use his music.” This isn’t the first time musicians have prohibited Trump from using their songs.
