Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Stones do not want Trump using their songs
Start Me Up? Well, rather not. The Rolling Stones want the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to stop using their hit single from 1981. …
“We have never given permission for the use of our songs and want this to stop immediately,” the band has written to Trump. The band had already complained before about the use of the songs You can’t always get what you want, Brown Sugar and Sympathy for the Devil.
The Rolling Stones are not the first musicians to complain about Trump. Also Adele (Skyfall) and Aerosmith (Dream On), Neil Young and REM were angry that their music was used during campaign meetings. …
Incidentally, the question is whether all authors can start something against Trump, if he would still continue to play their music. After complaints from Neil Young and Adele the Trump campaign announced that the required royalties were paid and that they needed no permission at all.
