The New York Post reports:
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s team has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign over using his song, “Memory,” at political rallies, Page Six has learned.
The miffed missive was mailed out after original “Cats” star Betty Buckley last month urged the show’s legendary composer to stop Trump’s team from playing her signature song, “Memory,” at rallies in advance of the GOP convention.
Buckley has further twisted the musical knife, we hear, by suggesting Trump instead use a different Webber song from “Phantom of the Opera,” “Poor Fool, He Makes Me Laugh.”
Webber is the just latest of dozens of major artists who have told Trump to stop using their music. Last month the Rolling Stones threatened to sue over the use of “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” which Trump has used as his exit music for years.
