Eric Clapton: Hypocrite or Hero

Nah...hypocrite...

Legendary guitarist, hater of immigrants and brown people everywhere, stealer of music of immigrants and black people, and affirmed believer in shoving any substance up his snout at any given moment without regard to the ingredients nor FDA approval as a prerequisite for performance…has made it clear that HE WILL NOT PLAY ANYWHERE WITH A VACCINE OR MASK MANDATE.

Not to get into politics, because if anyone knows this writer politics is the last thing he would wade into, we here at Sonikmatter are editorially neutral on the scientifically proven efficacy of any vaccine. In our previous mimeographed origin, our editor Zampino wrote epic threads about F**K SALK touting Iron Lung Rollo Washington, the original white man stealing licks from Black artists of the ‘50s, and Small Pox Jolson whose blackface career was derailed by the fact that his scabbed over face would get infected by the makeup of the day. Nope, we don’t judge here.

However, we do question the sincerity of statements made when the very first show overseas requires a vax app and Clapton says SHOW ME THE MONEY…
