The Rolling Stones spoke out against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for using their song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at the GOP convention Thursday night without permission.

Trump ended his 76-minute nomination acceptance speech to the strains of the song, which was released in 1969. The band responded Friday on Twitter.

“The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump,” the band tweeted. “ ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ was used without the band’s permission.”

Harrison’s Estate Angry Trump Used His Music

I was hoping someone would catch this!

George Harrison’s estate does not approve of Trump’s message. Ivanka Trump took the stage at the Republican National Convention to the tune of the Beatles’ Abbey Road classic, “Here Comes the Sun,” which was penned by Harrison. Harrison’s estate then tweeted that the use of the music was “unauthorized,” “offensive,” and against their wishes. Then, they added, “If it had been Beware of Darkness, then we MAY have approved it! #TrumpYourself.”

I am not sure where this KZOK air check came from. I stumbled access it on YouTube. I was back at KZOK, as station manager, in April 1980. Since I was such a huge radio name in Seattle I put myself on the air for a couple hours on Fridays. Bob Hovanes on news.
