    #5: And he has dated Black women too.

    Love his early stuff. The later more popular stuff, nah. I feel the same about Cat Stevens, except for him the dividing line for me is when he approved of the fatwa on Salman Rushdie.

    For what it's worth, Robin Monotti Graziadei, who's Telegram channel was used by Clapton to announce his decision about refusing to play venues that require proof of vaccination, posts stuff like the examples below on his Telegram account (he has been kicked off Twitter).
    I can't believe that Clapton is unaware of these opinions..

    The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 did not take place. That is to say that the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 was a media event. People died of a respiratory illness, of course. But were it not for mass mediation, mass massaging, it is likely that most people would have been totally unaware that there was a pandemic.

    URGENT WARNING re: MRI SCANS.
    We believe MRI scans are causing serious injuries including paralysis in Covid-19 vaccinated patients.
    Patients are showing clear signs of having magnetised particles within them post-vaccination.
    The hypothesis is that magnetised lipid nanoparticles within the patient
    migrate under the huge magnetic fields used within an MRI causing damage on
    a nanoscale equivalent to multiple shrapnel wounds.

    It's really hard to do justice 8n describing Knopfler's concerts. Unless you see one, you just can't imagine how good he and his band are.

    I saw him before and after a gig I supplied gear to. The after shot wasn't pretty. Nothing about him today need necessarily reflect on the person he was but it's ironic because the man has self injected more dangerous stuff in his veins than I have put in boat yard dumpsters.

    I don't think he is all vaccines sceptic, just the covid one, for some reason. Also, people can change, change their views , change their opinions, that's science and its principles.
    I don't belive in ghosts gods or extraterrestials visiting this planet, but the day any of or all of those are categorically undoubtedly repetatively proven, again and again, I'll be first in line at the spaceship temple of holy spirits..

    The issue for me is that, whether they should or not, people pay attention to celebrities. Clapton is a celebrity.

    Heck, people listen to what the Kardashians say!

    And every morning Ted Nugent wakes up & cries because he has no talent whatsoever. Of course he then goes & spends some of his gun money, so what does he care?

    I personally think Knopfler is a better musician.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Yeah, but at least he wakes up every morning, so he has that over SRV

    But can you get cheaper or more low rent than Ted Nugent?

    Hate him or love him, he is a multi-platinum selling artist. Not low rent.

    How much $ a person has is not connected to whether they are low-rent or not. For example, see a former president.

    His rent has nothing to do with it. Money can't buy class. For example, see a former president!

    We've already gone some distance on this thread towards exploring the notion that talent and success aren't always supplied in equal quality or quantity. Success based on exploitation is very low rent.
