I’ve been a fan of Eric Clapton since Cream recorded the song “Badge”* in (roughly) 1969. I consider him one of the four all-time great electric guitarists (the other three being Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, and Bill Nelson).
I’ve never been very interested in biographies of or interviews with celebrities, so I had no real acquaintance with Mr. Clapton’s personality and character until I watched the interview below, which was conducted and published by Oracle Films. He seems like a really nice guy, and a man of integrity, especially considering his position in the lofty empyrean of rock music celebrity.
However, his amiable personality did him no good when he ran up against the Narrative concerning COVID-19 and the “vaccine”. His interest in alternative therapies for the disease and his public mention of the adverse effects of the experimental mRNA treatment (which he experienced personally) put him beyond the pale of polite discourse and invited his cancellation from the pantheon of Guitar Gods. He and Van Morrison became the Evil Twins of the music world, and are now reviled by the bien pensants who control the Narrative and decide who is allowed to prosper and who gets squashed.
I recommend watching the entire interview:
