“Dream On” indeed, Donald. Steven Tyler threatened to sue Donald Trump if he doesn’t stop using Aerosmith’s “Dream On” during his campaign rallies on Saturday, Oct. 10.
The 67-year-old Aerosmith frontman sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Republican presidential candidate, 69 — and according to The Hollywood Reporter, this is the second time Trump has been warned. Tyler’s lawyers originally warned the real estate mogul about not using the song anymore on Aug. 21, after a rally in Mobile, Ala.
Most recently, on Saturday, Oct. 10, Trump’s camp played the song at a rally in Georgia. According to Tyler’s letter, the use of his band’s song makes it seem as if the Aerosmith frontman endorses Trump.
“Trump for President does not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of our client’s other music in connection with the Campaign because it gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid,” the cease-and-desist letter reads.
The “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” rocker raised eyebrows when he attended Trump’s August debate as his guest.
And the admiration is mutual. Last year, Trump went to an Aerosmith concert and tweeted about it, writing, “Doesn’t get any better than that! @IamStevenT was fantastic, great energy!”
