Neil Young to Donald Trump: My music’s not free to you

Young and Trump

Neil Young and the Donald in happier days. Neil Young on June 18 took umbrage with the use of this photo with regards to Young’s statement that Trump was not authorized to use “Rockin In the Free World” during his announcement he was running for president. According to Young’s statement June 18: “A picture of me with this candidate was also circulated in conjunction with this announcement but It was a photograph taken during a meeting when I was trying to raise funds for Pono, my online high resolution music service.”

Neil Young issued a statement tonight after Donald Trump used a portion of his song “Rockin’ In the Free World” when Trump announced he was running for president today in New York City.

Young also announced his preference for president of the United States, although he’s a Canadian.

Here’s the official statement from Lookout Management:

“Donald Trump was not authorized to use “Rockin’ In the Free World” in his presidential candidacy announcement.  Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America.”
