Duncan Jones, the son of Angie and David Bowie, has expressed dissatisfaction with former President Donald Trump for playing Jones’ father’s “Heroes” (1977) at campaign events.

    The Republican announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential office during his stay in Florida last week and played the track as he left the stage.

    Duncan Jones: “We’ve been through this before”

    After Twitter users pointed out Bowie’s son about the use of the title, he posted last Wednesday (November 16): “We’ve been through this before. He did the same track six years ago [bei seiner ersten Kandidatur für das Weiße Haus 2016] used. I have been told there is little we can do about it.”

    In another answer, the “Moon”-Director added: “I’m pretty sure he’s just doing this to annoy me.”

    The phenomenon is nothing new: in the past, Phil Collins and Pharrell Williams, among others, have banned Trump from using their plays. Just last week, Tom Petty’s estate also sued Trump’s colleague Kari Lake, because the Republican had illegally included the song “I Won’t Back Down” in her election campaign.

    Trump is back on Twitter

    Trump was allowed back on Twitter last Sunday (November 20) after Elon Musk launched an online poll. He was previously removed from the platform in January 2021 following the US Capitol riots.

    “People have spoken. Trump will be brought back,” Musk wrote after 51.8 percent voted “yes.” “Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

    Bowie’s Heroes was released on the 1977 album of the same name. Read our ROLLING STONE guide to Bowie’s work here. Click here for the “Heroes” album:
