Steven Tyler calls in attorney to tell President Donald Trump to stop using Aerosmith songs

Rocker Steven Tyler has had to call in his attorney, telling the president to stop using Aerosmith music at rallies.

Tyler’s attorney sent President Donald Trump a cease-and-desist letter Wednesday, the day after Trump rally organizers in West Virginia played “Livin’ on the Edge,” The Associated Press reported.

This isn’t the first time the Aerosmith frontman has asked the president to stop using the band’s music. The Trump campaign received two similar letters in 2015 for using Aerosmith songs at events, CNN reported.

This week’s letter says, according to AP, that by using the song, the president “is falsely implying that our client, once again, endorses his campaign and/or his presidency.”

Tyler also went to Trump’s favorite platform to reach out to fans and followers, Twitter, to explain that it isn’t politics. Rather Tyler doesn’t let anyone use the music without his OK. 

There has been no comment from Trump’s campaign. 

But the letter outlines that Trump has to respond with a confirmation of compliance in letter form within 24 hours of receiving the cease-and-desist request, CNN reported.

Howard King wrote, according to CNN

“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist,’ you played the song ‘Happy’ to a crowd at a political event in Indiana. There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose.”

King alleges that the use of the song without the consent of Williams goes against copyright and trademark.

“Pharrell has not, and will not, grant you permission to publicly perform or otherwise broadcast or disseminate any of his music,” King wrote in the letter, Time reported.

Trump and his administration have also received letters from other groups including The Rolling Stones, Steven Tyler and Adele, CNN reported.
