Attorneys representing Steven Tyler have sent two cease-and-desist letters to Trump’s presidential campaign asking him to stop using the song, according to the news service.
The letter reportedly said Trump does not have Tyler’s permission to use the power ballad and doing so “gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid.”
Tyler is a registered Republican, the AP noted, who attended the first GOP primary debate in Simi Valley in August.
A lawyer representing Tyler said in a statement to the AP that the decision is not “political” or a “personal issue with Mr. Trump,” but one of copyright.
R.E.M. asked Trump to stop playing their hit song “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” last month.
