In a new interview, rock icon Eric Clapton opened up about how his opposition to the government’s Covid policies gave him new motivation.
Clapton, who is the writer of the anti-lockdown song “Stand And Deliver,” told the Real Music Observer that he decided to release the politically charged song titled “This Has Gotta Stop” as a way of protest against federal policies in dealing with the pandemic.
“In the U.K., we have BBC, and it used to be an impartial commentary on world affairs and state affairs. And suddenly it was completely one-way traffic about following orders and obedience. And I felt really motivated, musically. It instigated something which really was laying dormant,” Clapton said about the origin of “Stand And Deliver” and “This Has Gotta Stop.”
He continued, “I was just playing live gigs up until the lockdown without really being socially involved in any way. . I have a tool, I have a calling, and I can make use of that. So I set about it and started writing.”
Vaccinated people may be victims of “mass formation hypnosis,” according to the English rock and blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter.
