Musicians Blast Donald Trump for Unauthorized Use of Their Songs

Donald is supposed to be the kind of businessman who is awrae of and who protects property rights. But the following list of tweets shows otherwise.

Back on May 5 an article called 6 Times Famous Rockers Told Donald Trump, Stop Using Our Music! appeared on Alternet.

Queen, the Rolling Stones, Adele, and Aerosmith are among the musicians who have asked Trump to stop using their music

There are many artists who have told Donald Trump to stop playing their music at presidential rallies and events affiliated with his campaign. Trump typically uses white classic rock bands at his rallies.  There is a running list of said artists who’ve publicly requested that the Republican nominee stops using their work. And the list keeps getting longer.

When the house band at the Republican National Convention played “Here Comes The Sun” as Ivanka Trump walked on stage, the estate of late Beatle George Harrison was not happy about it.

“When Donald started running for office, he asked me, he called me and said 'Can I use the song?' Dee Snider of Twisted Sister told CNN. "And he's a buddy. And I said, 'Yeah. Go ahead.' But as the months went on, I heard a litany of his beliefs that I'd never discussed with him. I finally called him and I said, 'Man, you've gotta stop using the song. People think I'm endorsing you here. I can't get behind a lot of what you're saying.' And that night. He has not used it since.”

According to NBC, The widow of Luciano Pavarotti spoke out: “As members of his immediate family, we would like to recall that the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the world view offered by the candidate Donald Trump."

Notes Sources and Resources For Tracing Tracy's Success Principles by Troy McClain

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step, or so the saying goes. As my team reviewed this manuscript and helped it roll toward publication, I found myself cherishing every step on my road to health, wealth and happiness.  I’m feeling uniquely blessed to have connected with world-renowned success trainer, Brian Tracy, who celebrates the human potential for greatness and teaches principles that anyone can learn. 
 I’ve done so many things in my life and business, but several years ago, I started to manifest a particular and profound spirit for deep investment and great reward.  The words and works of Brian Tracy came racing into my life, delivering those feelings to me in the deepest and most rewarding way I could imagine. I’ve seen that same thing happen with other highly successful people. They all describe great leaders. These shining lights help us be around, support, and enjoy people, resources and ideas that lead to abundance.
You will notice that the chapters in this book are intentionally short. Remember, five minutes to learn, a lifetime to master. You are receiving incredibly powerful information.  Manifest the secrets of a true success master into your life as others have been magnetically attracted to GIN (Global Information Network) and Tracy’s principles through our concentrated vibration.
Just reading, being exposed to and considering Tracy’s Success Principles is going to change you forever.  This especially hit me at a Platinum and Leadership Reception one starry evening. We were standing there holding hands, hugging, and celebrating life, love, and values. As I Reflected on all of this, I recalled that success is only a decision away. We are not stuck with those who do not see our potential, those who do not support us, those who abuse us. We know through our GIN training that our DNA does not determine our success. Our birth family is of our DNA but CANNOT determine the course of our lives unless we allow them to. Success is a decision. I know that now, more than at any time in my life.
As Tracy says in his blog, “How To Be Successful: Take Action Today,” Remember, it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from; all that really matters is where you’re going. And where you’re going is only limited by your imagination.
You are reading this book. That means you have made the conscious decision that the information in your life will positively contribute to your success.  Utilize the start of this beautiful journey to ignite your mastery of success principles.  The key factor is to practice every day, consistently. This process is better known as “Due Diligence,” and the tools to make that happen are built inside us.
Many have told me that their experience with these lessons was not one of motivational  hype but authentic “Energy.”  These principles align with our GIN curriculum, which is an Energy movement that impacts people on a cellular level.  It gets into their DNA to such a degree that they can “Feel the Difference.”
