Former Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne banned US president Donald Trump and his campaign team from using his music in promotional material.
Trump posted a tweet ridiculing US news channel over technical problems that happened while it was hosting a debate with Democratic primary contenders on Thursday night, featuring Osbourne’s 1980 hit Crazy Train as its soundtrack.
“Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train, we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne’s music in political ads or in any political campaigns. Ozzy’s music cannot be used for any means without approvals,” Osbourne and his manager wife told Rolling Stone magazine.
The Osbournes suggested that Trump starts using music of artists who support him instead.
Previously, Aerosmith, Neil Young, Adele, REM, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Pharrell Williams, Rihanna and Guns’n’Roses also asked Trump to stop using their music.
