The Rolling Stones tell U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump to stop using the band's music for his campaign. John Russell reports.
The Rolling Stones told Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump on Wednesday (May 04) to stop using the band's music for his campaign. "The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately," the band's spokesperson said in a statement. Trump used the band's "Start Me Up" while at a rally in New York on Tuesday (May 03), blasting the tune before he reached the podium and again immediately after his speech. A representative for Trump's campaign did not respond to a request for comment on Wednesday. Other artists have asked the candidate to stop using their music, including Adele and R.E.M.
