Steven Tyler is threatening to sue Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump if he continues to use Aerosmith’s song “Dream On” during his campaign rallies.
The singer’s attorneys have issued a second cease and desist letter, after sending an initial one back in August, ordering the billionaire to stop using the track immediately.
Despite being quite tight with Donald, Steven doesn’t like his work being used without the correct licence.

Tyler’s attorney Dina LaPolt also confirmed to TMZ that the move wasn’t about politics.
“[Tyler’s] position has always been consistent regarding copyright and intellectual property. Simply, one must get permission from the music creators. Steven wrote 100% of ‘Dream On,’ and this is about the un-authorized use of his property.”
It’s not the first time Donald has been asked to stop using a song at his campaign rallies, with R.E.M demanding he stop using “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” and Neil Young wanting “Rockin’ in the Free World” not to be used.
