Steven Tyler sends Trump another cease and desist

"Livin' on the Edge" may be an appropriate song to describe Donald Trump's presidency, but that doesn't mean Steven Tyler wants the tune played at Trump's rallies.

It is also not the first time Trump has had a flap over playing an Aerosmith song at a rally.

The cease-and-desist letter from Tyler cites the Lanham Act, which prohibits "any false designation or misleading description or representation of fact ... likely to cause confusion ... as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person".

Musicians demanding politicians quit using their music at campaign rallies has been common for years.

The song was most recently played Tuesday night (August 21st) as Trump supporters entered the Charleston Civic Center for the president's rally in West Virginia.

"This is not about Democrats vs. Republicans", Tyler said in a statement Wednesday.

Trump assails Mueller following Times report
Trump reportedly tried to get Jeff Sessions involved in the Russian Federation investigation and contemplated firing Mueller. The paper said McGahn was motivated in part by fear that the president might set him up to be held responsible.

That letter stated that Trump did "not have our client's permission to use "Dream On" or any of Tyler's other songs and that it "gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid". Trump tweeted in October 2015.

Part of the letter read, according to the site: "As expressly outlined in the Previous Letters, Mr. Trump does not have our client's permission to use any of our client's music, including "Livin" On The Edge'".

Variety also reported that Broadcast Music, Inc. If Mr. Trump has any such license, please forward it to our attention immediately.

Steven Tyler revealed to host Joe Rogan in a recent interview on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast that he had asked Trump not to use "Dream On" at campaign rallies on the phone.

The president doesn't have the right to use Steven's likeness, name, image, or voice, without express permission, the attorney explained.
