Steven has stated that he will sue Donald Trump if he continues to use song called Dream On for his Presidential campaign. TMZ is claiming that Tyler has send a letter to Trump where the subject is their 1973 song, that was and still is a hit.
In the letter Steven is saying that if he lets Donald to continue using his song it will give “false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr Trump’s presidential bid”. Apparently he gave Trump deadline of 24 hours to remove the song from his campaign or to provide him with evidence that he has permission to use it.
Dina LaPolt who is Tyler’s lawyer gave statement saying that it is not even about politics but about copyright and that famous singer has nothing personal against Trump. In the state for Mirror Celebs she said: “This is not a political nor personal issue with Mr. Trump, Steven works tirelessly with both Republicans and Democrats regarding copyright reform and his 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. Steven is a registered Republican.”
In August this year they contacted Trump for the first time regarding the same situation, but it looks like Trump did not take it too seriously. It is worth mentioning that Tyler is registered Republican (that is why you can be positive it is not about politics) and that he was, together with his drummer, at the Republican debate in Cleveland, as Donald Trump’s guest.
