Steven Tyler, Aerosmith frontman, has some fighting words for Donald Trump, presidential hopeful. In a sternly worded cease and desist letter, Steven Tyler is demanding that the Donald Trump campaign stop using the “Dream On” by Aerosmith at their campaign stops, Gossip Cop reports.
Tyler’s lawyers have stated that the unapproved use of the song by Donald Trump implies that Steven Tyler is associated with the real estate mogul’s bid to become president.
“It gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid,” the cease and desist letter says.
According to Gossip Cop, Trump first used the song at a campaign stop in Mobile Alabama at the at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Steven Tyler’s legal team ssays that the Donald Trump camp was sent a letter to stop using the song the week after that event.
But it’s obvious that the request was not listened to because they continued to use the song, which prompted Tyler’s lawyers to send the cease and desist letter. Now that the legal letter has been issued, Donald Trump could be sued if he and his team continue to use the song.
“If Trump for President does not comply with our demands, our client will be forced to pursue any and all legal or equitable remedies which our client may have against you,” the letter says.
