Eric Clapton Talks ‘Disatrous’ Reaction to AstraZenaca Vaccine
Eric Clapton fired a shot at pharmaceutical companies sharing his experience with the AstraZenaca vaccine, blasting it as sold “propoganda” to the masses.
The Grammy-Award winning 76-year old guitar legend penned a revealing letter to architect and anti-lockdown activist Robin Monotti Graziadei in which he revealed the side effects he dealt with after getting the vaccine in February.
“I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days. I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one,” the three-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer wrote.
“Needless to say the reactions were disastrous,” he continued. “My hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again.”
Clapton added that he “should’ve never gone near the needle” due to his “peripheral neuropathy,” but the “propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.”
Clapton was clear that he will not back down about his opinion, either.
“I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know,” he wrote. “I’ve been a rebel all my life, against tyranny and arrogant authority, which is what we have now…But I also crave fellowship, compassion and love, and that I find here… I believe with these things we can prevail.”
Clapton appeared on Van Morrison‘s anti-lockdown song, “Stand And Deliver.” The song was written by Morrison and sung by Clapton.
