t is very frustrating that having avoided Covid throughout lockdown and throughout the period when travel restrictions have been in place Eric should have succumbed to Covid at this point in time,

Phrasing, anyone?

Couldn't have happened to a better second rate blues ripoff artist.   Clapton sucks.

I'd never wish long COVID on someone, but I wouldn't be terribly sad if it happened
 
2022-05-16 7:28:53 PM  
I guess those tour dates are out the window now

I feel so sorry for his Covid. Best wishes, virus!

Basically he ripped off getting COVID from Buddy Guy

Fair point.

No, he doesn't.

It is possible that he is good at what he does, and also is a raging asshole.

If you're unvaxed and get COVID, it's your fault.

I hope he writes a shiatty song with Van Morrison about how it makes him feel.

It's also possible that he has like 4 good songs (two of which are the same song) and is a raging asshole
 
2022-05-16 9:57:06 PM  
Good. Fark that anti-vaxxer. He should have been the one that fell out a window.
 
2022-05-16 10:06:09 PM  
So I guess he only likes the sort of vaccines he chop on a mirror and snort?
 
2022-05-16 10:08:05 PM  
But he's vax'd right?  He claims he got vax'd and it f'd him up.  The vax is all BS that we sheep have been hypnotized into getting.  This just plays right into his anti-vax screeching.  That the vax is all BS.  He got vax'd and still got covid.

He is vaxxed. He got the Astra Zeneca, then immediately started biatching about it saying it made his hands go numb.

I don't know if he ever got the second shot. Maybe he's only half-vaxxed.

Well if you want to take his word for it, sure.  I'm inclined to call bullshiat on both of those claims.

Billy Liar: Probably hunkering down in a mansion somewhere, busy blaming immigrants.


Well, he blamed a nameless "janitor" for his son's death, instead of he and his wife's decision not to child-safe the windows in their apartment, something any sane parent had been doing since oh, the 1950s?  I heard that story and I was like, wait, janitors fix windows?  Not in NYC they don't, and no super would ever just leave a window fully open.  And then there was the part where the kid was accustomed to jumping up on the window ledge and pressing his face to the glass to see his dad.  Who farking lets their kid stand on even the inside window ledge pressed up against the glass?

What kind of farking idiot parents were these people?  My heart breaks to hear how that boy died, but then I rage when I think about how that shiatheel rocker spun that into album gold, that farking maudlin, mawkish shiatfarker fark.

Thank you. Clapton is a tired old crank, a racist, and a boorish asshole who is long overdue to get the hell out of the public eye -- wouldn't shed a tear if his Covid skepticism bit him in the ass in a rather permanent way -- but the knee-jerk need to retroactively declare that he was never actually any good is just silly.

Yes, he stood on the shoulders of many who came before him ... just as all great musicians did. For a time he was widely hailed as one of the greats by pretty much every other musician alive. He was undeniably a big influence to many and was high acclaimed at what he did.

Doesn't mean he isn't an ignorant, raging asshole with a long history of ignorance and bigotry. He is. He's all of those things and more.

But we don't need to pretend that he wasn't once one of the great blues rock guitarists to make that point, because he was.

Instead of trying to retcon music history, I just choose to not listen to his music anymore. Easy peasy, and more importantly, it's honest.
 
2022-05-16 10:29:13 PM  
Well he's rich so doesn't matter that he's old and supposedly un-vaxxed, he'll survive to continue to spreed anti-vax BS.
 
2022-05-16 10:35:11 PM  
he was only the second best guitarist in blind faith and at that only on a technicality

It wasn't his apartment. He was not living with his son's mother, who had custody. She was also never his wife.

Clapton is a tremendous shiat head but I think before blaming someone for their son's death that perhaps you should actually be clear on the facts of the matter.
 
2022-05-16 11:11:59 PM  
Given that I've torrented all his music and he doesn't have anymore children to murder and sing about, He's better of for the world to just die.

As a solo artist?  No, thanks - really I'll pass.  As part of a project where he's slotting in for others' stuff?  He can be quite good.  I give you Roger Waters' Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking album.  Wouldn't be the same album at all without Clapton, he's a large part of it.  Was it his music, his vision, his songs?  Hell no it was farking not, he was playing accent.  Doing it well, but it wasn't his baby - and it shows.  It's an excellent albumb

He should have had three doses by now. I think that's probably not the case, so he's in for a really bad time.
