Man, dude, some people REALLY, REALLY care about vaccines. I dont believe that rant was about EC as a musician one bit.I don't really care about all the drama surrounding whatever Clapton said or currently says. He has been an idiot his whole life. Idiots say stupid stuff. Watch the early videos from the 60's on how he "invented the Woman tone". He has only gone downhill since.
Regarding the rig rundown, I would only watch it to learn what NOT to use, as Clapton's tone has sucked since around 1970. It almost seems he goes out of his way to seek a lifeless, zero sustain tone from his guitars and amps.
Maybe it's a bit disorienting to see people acting like something out of a dystopian sci fi if you've never experienced it before. Maybe any PR person in their right mind would tell you not to respond to the negativity, a sort of miranda rights are in effect. Any response will be used against you.Haterz hate when they are bombarded with negative news about something. People are lemmings. It's how the business model works.
He has done nothing this year to spin a positive narrative. His choice. But clearly he is not concerned with preserving a positive legacy and is content with all the negative.
Man that was some hair metal ass butt rock right there.Clapton has been the biggest buzzkill this year. Sorry.
Todays morning storhy in Rock I just read:
"the media", huh...that's weird, cause i only watch the pro-COVID-19 channel...I'm sorry you let the media manipulate you like that. That is a buzzkill indeed.
My opinion of him today is no different than it was 5 years ago, that's all I'm saying. Not my favorite player or anything but I dont find his Covid statements the slightest bit controversial. The rigid way people are acting about Covid and the attempts to silence and smear are much more disturbing."the media", huh...that's weird, cause i only watch the pro-COVID-19 channel...
actually, decades of increasingly rote and uninspired guitar playing dulled my buzz considerably before his anti-science caterwauling killed it double dead...can't wait for his new album though, entitled, "OUCH! WAAAHHH!"
