Donald Trump Says He Has the Rights to Use Rolling Stones' Songs
The Rolling Stones want Trump to stop using their music.
Donald Trump says he has “the rights” to use The Rolling Stones’ music after the iconic rockers asked for the GOP frontrunner to stop using their songs.
In an interview with CNBC on Thursday, Trump said: “You know, we use so many songs. We have the rights to use them. I always buy the rights."
Trump told the network that he and the campaign “have no problem” with the British band. “Certainly I have no problem. I like Mick Jagger. I like their songs,” he said.
The legendary rockers' hit “Start Me Up” was played during Trump's victory celebration at Trump Tower Tuesday night.
After the event, The Stones asked him to stop using their songs as campaign anthems.
"The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately,” a statement from the band said.
Trump has also used their songs “Brown Sugar,” “Sympathy for the Devil” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” during his rallies.
In an interview with Billboard magazine last September, guitarist Keith Richards called Trump “refreshing” and he has “cut through a lot of crap.”
But Richards did not mince his words when he reflected on the idea of President Donald Trump.
“Well, can you imagine President Trump? The worst nightmare," he said in the same interview. "But we can’t say that. Because it could happen. This is one of the wonders of this country. Who would’ve thought Ronald Reagan could be president?"
