Phil Collins issues cease-and-desist to Trump for using “In the Air Tonight” at rally
Phil Collins is the latest artist to speak out against Donald Trump for using his song at a campaign rally. Specifically, Trump used Phil's 1981 smash "In the Air Tonight" at a rally in Iowa on Wednesday night right before he took the stage. "Yes we are well aware of the Trump campaign’s use of this song and we have already issued a ‘cease and desist’ letter via our lawyers who continue to monitor the situation," a representative for Collins told Consequence of Sound.
Even if he had gotten permission, using a song titled "In the Air Tonight" during a global airborne pandemic is a questionable choice, but we are talking about Donald Trump.
