BLOG: R&B group O'Jays decry GOP use of 'Love Train'
There's not a lot of love from the O'Jays about the use of their song "Love Train" during the Republican National Convention.
The R&B group says its hit — including a version remixed as "Trump Train" — is being used without the band's consent.
Founding O'Jays members Eddie Levert and Walter Williams say in a statement they were asked to appear at the Cleveland convention. They say they turned down the offer, and they say Donald Trump's candidacy is — in their words — "divisive and at odds with the overriding message of their song."
Levert is making clear what he thinks about the GOP presidential nominee: "I think he just may be the anti-Christ."
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers say they're willing to be a part of the upcoming Democratic National Convention.
