Phil Collins does not want to hear “In The Air Tonight” at another Donald Trump rally.
Collins sent a cease and desist order after his song was played at the U.S. President’s campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa on Wednesday.
“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,” the Genesis frontman’s representative told Consequence of Sound.
