Rolling Stones demand Donald Trump stop using their music at campaign events

The Rolling Stones have demanded presumptive Republican US presidential nominee Donald Trump stop playing their songs at his campaign events.

In a statement, the rock band said they have not given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and "have requested that they cease all use immediately".

The Trump campaign team did not immediately comment.

Mr Trump, an avid music fan, has featured Rolling Stones songs at his rallies for months as part of a diverse soundtrack that includes Elton John, opera and classic rock songs.

The Rolling Stones' 1969 classic You Can't Always Get What You Want was a popular song choice for his events.
