Seriously it seems the Stones have been fighting this for years.

No one thinks the Stones are Trump supporters. At the end of the day, there are far bigger things to worry about than whether a politician plays your song at a rally.

And keep in mind the Stones are still British. They are less invested in American politics than an American band like Aerosmith.

interesting. drummer joey kramer is a vocal supporter of trump/gop & it has caused some tension in the band in the past. think there is a similar dynamic in journey, also.

Joey Kramer has always been somewhat of a douche. Now he's just an old loudmouth in a sellout nostalgia act.

I think I read somewhere that Joe Perry said he was an "old school republican" but is skeptical about their then current affairs. I think this may have been even before Trump.

Not much of an Aerosmith fan, but whenever any of these people in the States call themselves Republicans, it's like Mick sometimes identifying with the Conservative Party. They're fiscal conservatives, not social ones.

And no, I'm not saying people aren't allowed to be conservative, but these are rock stars. These are people who believe in their right to a life of excess and abandon being in your face. They are not moral conservatives, they just want to protect their wealth and think this is their best path.

Does this make them shallow and self-absorbed? Sure, it's the same way they think of groupies.

Are there exceptions? Yes, Ted Nugent really does believe in his flag-waving right to use high-powered rifles and hand grenades in his unending war against deer and squirrels. A fair amount of idiocy is expected in any sizable segment of society.

Yep, pretty well made for each other.

They're just private citizens who happen to be complete douchebags...and one's a musician! This is a perfectly reasonable IORR topic.

Osteen and Kanye...there's a song for them from back in the day and all the other religious snake oil salespeople - Paul Kelly's "Stealing In the Name Of The Lord". I can hear the Stones doing a cover of this leading into either Just Wanna See His Face or Shine A Light.

This a hard question to answer:

1. who are the lawyers?
2. What are their accomplishments (Educations, awards, etc..)
3. What cases have they won/lost?
4. Can they fail a urine test? (Requirement of a good lawyer)

Three members of Journey went to the White House and had their pictures taken with The Donald, which caused a rift with original member Neal Schon.

The Stones have good lawyers.

Trump paid the normal licensing fees in order to use YCAGWYW and the other songs he uses, as per normal procedure.

That is why artists can complain, and make it seem like they object, but can't do anything.

Yep, pretty much.

I have no idea how Aerosmith appeared to be successful in their pursuit while other artists haven't.

two things to add.

1 believe perry and tyler are friendly with trump so its a lot easier to get him to stand down

2 ted nugent says some of the things he does on purpose to get a reaction. go look on his facebook they other day he stuck up for his friend George lopez and his facebook was filled with hate about ted is a sellout , blah , blah , blah and he pretty told the people acting like that to go get lost if you feel he shouldn't be friends with good honest people

You do know that the promoter of those shows was Donald Trump?

I was at the first and third shows, not the PPV.

I have a lot of papers, including the NY Daily News with the story from that week about the helicopter crash that killed Trump's VP, and how Trump was supposed to be on the flight but changed his plans at the last minute.

I also remember how Keith was pissed at Trump for trying to horn in on the Stones' press event. There was maybe talk of a knife on the table, or else I imagined that.

Let's not drift away. A better story is that Keith pulled a knife when the Trump issue was discussed with Michael Cohn and told him something like ... are you going to tell the man or am I ...
Well, apparently Cohl did tell Trump ...
