The Donald Trump campaign upset one last artist on the last night of the Republican National Convention.   

Ivanka Trump walked on to the convention stage  Thursday to introduce her father to "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles. The estate of former Beatle George Harrison, who wrote the song, expressed its displeasure: 

[ Special Coverage: 2016 Republican National Convention] This is not the first time  the convention hit a sour note with musicians. Trump walked on stage to Queen's "We are the Champions" earlier in the week and the band's Brian May asked that he cease and desist. The Rolling Stones had told Trump to stop using their song "Start Me Up" during the campaign, and the convention closed — curiously — on Thursday with their song "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Maybe the Stones suggested that as an alternative like Harrison's estate did.
