"The Night the Rolling Stones Fired Trump"

Apparently they don't have sympathy for some devils.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/02/the-night-the-rolling-stones-fired-trump-keith-richards-once-pulled-a-knife-to-get-him-out-of-atlantic-city-venue/?utm_source&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=3741&fbclid=IwAR2IBWz-uxZbdTgobnu4aolsq6j4LnyQASM0LI2c8nQKQklnLspU4NvI3uk

In 1989, The Rolling Stones’ original members ended their seven-year hiatus and embarked on an ambitious and profitable 115-show tour of Europe and North America. The American leg, named after their comeback album “Steel Wheels,” began in August in Philadelphia and ended in December in Atlantic City.

The final show, at the Boardwalk Hall (f.k.a Convention Center), aired on pay-per-view and — like the Miss America Pageant, also held at the Hall — was to be sponsored by the adjacent Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.

Even in the late-‘80s, however, The Stones didn’t want to be associated with Trump. So they cut a deal with him, stipulating he wouldn’t be involved in any promotional capacity outside of Atlantic City and, amazingly, wouldn’t be allowed at the show itself....

1. And since then Jerry Hall switched from Mick to

Murdoch.

Does the fucking moron ever use their songs at his rallies. I seem to recall that he does. Why can't they stop him?

5. If Twitler books an arena-type venue for his KKKlan rallies...

...and the venue pays blanket royalties to the artists rights orgs (bmi, ascap, sesac etc) - the Stones and others may not be able to stop their tunes from being used at such events.
