STEVEN TYLER ASKS DONALD TRUMP TO KNOCK OFF USING "DREAM ON"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Steven Tyler is asking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to stop using the song "Dream On" at campaign events. Tyler's attorneys have sent a second cease-and-desist letter to Trump's campaign. Tyler is a registered Republican, but the letter says Trump's use of the song gives the false impression that Tyler endorses Trump. Tyler's attorney, Dina LaPolt, says the letter is not a political or personal issue with Trump, but an issue of permission and copyright. Trump's representatives did not return calls for comment.

WHAT CHRISSIE HYNDE DOES NOT TELL IN HER MEMOIR
NEW YORK (AP) -- Chrissie Hynde doesn't quite spill all in her autobiography, "Reckless: My Life As A Pretender." Hynde says publishers pressured her to discuss her relationship with Ray Davies of The Kinks, but he asked her to keep it out. Hynde discusses the relationship in general terms. She says she won't talk about her personal life because "it's considered a form of treason to betray anybody you've been in some kind of a personal relationship with." She doesn't mention her 1984 marriage to Jim Kerr of Simple Minds because the story of the book ends with the deaths of Pretenders guitarist James Honeyman-Scott in 1982 and bassist Pete Farndon in 1983. Hynde waited until her parents were dead before she put out the book.

KISS MONUMENT UNVEILED IN CADILLAC, MICHIGAN
CADILLAC, Mich. (AP) -- The city of Cadillac, Michigan, has unveiled a monument dedicated to the day 40 years ago when Kiss came to town. Kiss visited Cadillac in October 1975 to meet the high school's football team, which credited Kiss' music for its winning season the previous year. Kiss had ridden in the homecoming parade, had performed in the school gym and had thrown cards that said "Kiss Loves You" from a helicopter. This past weekend, a black granite monument dedicated to the event was unveiled beside the football field. Kiss was not able to attend but sent a video tribute. Gene Simmons tells MLive.com he remembers that event so clearly, because "it was almost as if we were on a Kiss spaceship and landed on Planet Kiss." He says a film called "Cadillac High" based on the visit is in the works.

An Experience Hendrix attorney says Reynolds stole it.
OBAMA OFFERS SUGGESTIONS FOR KANYE WEST'S PRESIDENTIAL RUN
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- President Barack Obama has three tips for Kanye West, if West actually decides to run for president in 2020. Obama says the first tip is that West will "spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they're on a reality TV show, so you've got to be cool with that." His second tip is that West refrain from saying things like "Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," because members of Congress have lost their seats that way. Obama's third tip is more of a question: "Do you really think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States?" Obama says, "That's crazy!" Obama made his comments during a fundraiser in San Francisco that West attended.

LAWMAKERS SEEK TO PROTECT KING RECORDS SITE
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Cincinnati's city council has taken steps to preserve the site of the former King Records building, which was once the musical home of James Brown, Otis Redding and John Lee Hooker. Last week, council members designated the building a historic landmark, which will make it harder for the current owners of the property to tear it down. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports one of the two current owners of the land wants to expand. Mayor John Cranley says the motion to declare the site historic was begun before the owner bought the property.
