Guitar wizard Eric Clapton has said that not only is he against the vaccine but that he won’t play gigs where proof of immunization against the virus is required.
Queen’s Brian May says he’s a huge fan but that Clapton is a ‘fruitcake.’
‘I love Eric Clapton, he’s my hero, but he has very different views from me in many ways. He’s a person who thinks it’s OK to shoot animals for fun, so we have our disagreements, but I would never stop respecting the man. Anti-vax people, I’m sorry, I think they’re fruitcakes. There’s plenty of evidence to show that vaccination helps. On the whole, they’ve been very safe. There’s always going to be some side effect in any drug you take, but to go around saying vaccines are a plot to kill you, I’m sorry, that goes in the fruitcake jar for me.’
Van Morrison also goes in the ‘fruitcake jar.’
