Neil Young has written an open letter to President Donald Trump following his Mt. Rushmore rally, during which several of the rock icon’s songs, including “Rockin’ in the Free World,” were played.
Young even suggested the president use his new song “Lookin’ For A Leader 2020” at the next rally.
“Although I have repeatedly asked you to please not use my music because it indicates that I support your agenda, you have always played my songs anyway at your gatherings, with no regard for my rights, even calling me names on twitter,” Young wrote in the letter, which was posted on his Neil Young Archives site.
“Because you are in charge of the Covid 19 response here in the USA, I will not sue you, (as certainly is my right) potentially distracting from your important work at hand protecting and saving American lives,” he continued. “With the enormous power you wield on our behalf, I wish you all the best in your critical battle to save American souls from this threat. I know you will do your best for all Americans, regardless of political leanings. I give you my encouragement in your efforts to Unify America.”
Trump has been using “Rockin’ in the Free World” at his rallies for the past few years despite Young raising objections several times.
During the last rally, Trump also played “Cowgirl in the Sand” and “Like a Hurricane”.
“I suggest you listen to my song ‘Lookin’ For A Leader 2020,’ available on my website, neilyoungarchives.com as part of a work I recently completed with my wife- ‘The Porch Episode,’ as I believe it would be an interesting addition to your next rally,” Young concluded the letter.
