One of the biggest rock bands in history is furious their music is being used for the President’s political ends, called 'a campaign of hate' by late singer Tom Petty's family
After four years of trying to stop him using their track You Can’t Always Get What You Want, the band are looking to the courts to enforce a ban.Stones legends Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who co-wrote the song, are said to be furious their music is being used for the President’s political ends.
Trump, who had a huge row with the group 31 years ago, plays the 1969 classic at the end of rallies. He has also used Stones hit Start Me Up before he arrives on stage. The band sent him a cease and desist letter in 2016, but it was ignored.Now the British group have stepped up the fight. They said: “This could be the last time Trump uses any Jagger/Richards songs on his campaigns.”
In the US, politicians do not need the artists’ permission to play their songs at rallies as long as the individual or venue has a licence from performing rights organisation Broadcast Music, Inc for all the music that it oversees.But BMI can exclude tracks from the licence if a songwriter or publisher objects to their use by a campaign.
The band, who have now involved the organisation, said: “BMI has notified Trump on behalf of the Stones that the unauthorised use of their songs will constitute a breach of its licensing agreement. If Trump disregards [this], he would face a lawsuit.”
Sir Mick, 76, said previously You Can’t Always Get What You Want is a “weird” choice as a play-out song, calling it a “drowsy ballad about drugs in Chelsea”.Keith, also 76, who has urged US citizens to “get rid” of Trump, once suggested that in 1989 he threatened to stab him in a row over a Stones gig the businessman was promoting.
After the Tom Petty hit I Won’t Back Down was played at Trump’s rally nine days ago, the late singer’s family said he would never want one of his songs “used for a campaign of hate”. Read more: Mirror Celeb »
