Steven Tyler has threatened to sue Donald Trump using Aerosmith ‘s Dream On song for his campaign rallies.
According to TMZ, a cease and desist letter from the band’s frontman warns the Republican presidential candidate about using the 1973 hit.
The letter states by Trump using Dream On it “gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr Trump’s presidential bid”.
The singer has given Trump 24 hours to remove the hit from his playlist or provide evidence that he’s allowed to use the song.
Tyler’s attorney Dina LaPolt told us that the star is concerned about copyright and doesn’t have a “personal issue” with Trump.
She told Mirror Celebs: “This is not a political nor personal issue with Mr. Trump, Steven works tirelessly with both Republicans and Democrats regarding copyright reform and his position has always been consistent regarding copyright and intellectual property.
“Simply, one must get permission from the music creators. Steven wrote 100% of ‘Dream On,’ and this is about the un-authorized use of his property. Steven is a registered Republican.”
Tyler’s attorneys are also said to have sent a letter to Trump’s camp back in August about the situation.
It would be more surprising if Tyler’s grievance was about politics as he is a registered Republican and both he and Aerosmith drummer were among the 5,000 at the Republican debate in Cleveland – as Trump’s guests.
Mirror Celeb has contacted a representative of Donald Trump and Steven Tyler for comment.
