Eric Clapton recently sat down with ‘The Real Music Observer’ and said biased media coverage actually inspired him to release his anti-vax songs last year.
Clapton said to The Real Music Observer, “[I thought], ‘What’s going on here?’ I didn’t get the memo. Whatever the memo was, it hadn’t reached me. Then I started to realize there was really a memo, and a guy, Mattias Desmet, talked about it. And it’s great – the theory of mass formation hypnosis. And I could see it then – once I kind of started to look for it, I saw it everywhere."
The music legend added, “Then I remembered seeing little things on YouTube which were like subliminal advertising; it had been going on for a long time -- that thing about ‘you will own nothing and you will be happy.’ And I thought, ‘What’s that mean?’ And bit by bit, I put a rough kind of jigsaw puzzle together. And that made me even more resolute.”
He went on to say, “And so I went from that to looking at the news stuff that was coming out in England and the UK, 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."
Clapton teamed up with Van Morrison for "Stand and Deliver" and released another anti-vax song, "This Has Got to Stop," on his own in 2021.
