LONDON — The estate of former Beatle George Harrison is complaining about the use of his music at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Harrison’s family tweeted Friday that the use of the song “Here Comes the Sun” during the introduction of candidate Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka was not authorized, and was “offensive and against the wishes of the George Harrison estate.”

Rocker Paul Rodgers also complained about the use of his “All Right Now” at the climax of Trump’s speech.

Earlier in the convention, Brian May of Queen complained about the use of the band’s 1977 hit “We Are the Champions” during a Trump convention appearance.
