Trump vs Stones

The Rolling Stones have asked presumptive Republican US presidential nominee Donald Trump to stop playing their songs at his campaign events.

After effectively sealing the Republican nomination on Tuesday night, Mr Trump played the Stones hit Start Me Up as he left the stage following a victory speech.

However, the British rock band said in a statement on Wednesday: “The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all

use immediately.” Mr Trump is known to be a fan of the Stones, and has previously played You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Sympathy for the Devil and Brown Sugar at campaign events.

It is not the first time the controversial presidential candidate has been banned from playing songs.
