Rocker Neil Young has written the following open letter to President Trump.
Per SPIN, the veteran rocker has been a supporter of Black Lives Matter and has shared an essay and a reworked version of “Southern Man” in solidarity with the movement. He just released Homegrown, a lost album from 1974 as well.
Young posted the letter on his website.
Dear Mr. President:
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 regards for my rights, even calling me names on twitter.
I did notice you played my music at your latest rally despite my previous request.
…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,” the former CSNY member stated while sending his well-wishes for the nation’s leader for protecting and unifying Americans during the pandemic.
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.
With respect for your office,
