Would you believe me if I told you a band is pissed at Donald Trump for playing their music?
Following his speech at the RNC, Trump walked off stage to The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, a band which had already sent a cease and desist to Trump. (Not to mention, Keith Richards once pulled a knife on the Republican presidential nominee). Prior to that, he played “Alright Now” by Free, and shocker: frontman Paul Rodgers wasn’t happy about it.
The anti-Trump sentiment is not just reserved for ol’ Donald, however. The estate of George Harrison has condemned Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, for walking on stage to The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” prior to her own speech at the RNC last night.
“The unauthorized use of ‘Here Comes the Sun’ at the RNC is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate,” according to a tweet from Harrison’s official account. “If it had been ‘Beware of Darkness’, then we MAY have approved it! #TrumpYourself,” the estate later added.
Given that Trump continues to play music by The Rolling Stones and Queen even after receiving cease and desist orders, he’s likely unfazed by this latest condemnation.
