The request reportedly has nothing to do with 67-year-old musician political beliefs but rather intellectual rights. "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," Tyler’s attorney, Dina LaPolt, said in a statement obtained by ET.
"Simply, one must get permission from the music creators," LaPolt added. "Steven wrote 100% of 'Dream On,' and this is about the un-authorized use of his property. Steven is a registered Republican."
According to the letter, this is the second time Trump has been warned about using the song, and he has 24 hours to remove the tune from his presidential campaign playlist or produce proof that he has permission to use it. The 69-year-old presidential hopeful first played the song at a rally in Mobile, Alabama, in August, and then again in Georgia -- which happened to be on Saturday.
This isn't the first song Trump was slammed for using music without permission this year. R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe penned a NSFW rant -- shared by his bandmate Mike Mills -- after the businessman used the rock band's 1987 hit "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" during a "Stop the Iran Deal" rally in Washington, D.C., last month.
Maybe Trump should just stop playing music at his rallies altogether?
