Trump in trouble with Aerosmith for using 'Dream On'

Donald Trump received a cease-and-desist letter from Aerosmith over the weekend for his repeated use of their 1973 song "Dream On" at his campaign rallies.

According to the letter, Trump was first asked to stop playing the song at his campaign stops on Aug. 21 after an event in Mobile, Ala. His continued use of the song prompted the letter.

"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," reads the letter, obtained by the Hollywood Reporter.

The letter went on to say that Steven Tyler and his representatives at LaPolt Law are "unaware" of any public performance license giving Trump permission to play "Dream On." It asked the business mogul, who is currently leading the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings, to forward them any license to use the song if he has it.
