The legendary rocker Eric Clapton donated $1,360 to the anti-vaccine band Jam For Freedom months after he suffered a “disastrous” reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Rolling Stone reported that the 76-year-old rocker donated £1,000 ($1,360) to the British group Jam For Freedom through a GoFundMe page that was set up to help them pay for legal fees that stem from “breaching COVID regulations” at a gig. Jam For Freedom has been touring the United Kingdom for months blasting the COVID-19 vaccines in their songs, with one of their lyrics stating, “You can stick your poison vaccine up your arse.”
Cambel McLaughlin, the founding member of Jam For Freedom, said that he thought he was being pranked when he saw the donation come in from Clapton.
“I’m like, ‘This could be fake,’” McLaughlin said, but he then received a complementary text from Clapton letting him know that it was really him.
“It was something complimentary, along the lines of, ‘Hey, it’s Eric — great work you’re doing,'” he continued, adding that he later talked to Clapton on the phone. During this conversation, Clapton even offered to lend Jam For Freedom a six-person VW Transporter van so that they could drive around to gigs. He then gave the band “a chunk of money” to buy their own van outright, according to McLaughlin.
The New York Post reported that Clapton has been criticizing the coronavirus vaccines ever since he suffered a “disastrous” reaction to the AstraZeneca jab back in May.
“My hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again,” he wrote in a letter to lockdown activists who are against lockdowns. Clapton went on to say that he “should’ve never gone near the needle” due to his “peripheral neuropathy,” but “propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.”
“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 continued.
Clapton has been an outspoken anti-vaccine activist ever since. In July, he announced that he will refuse to perform at venues that require proof of vaccination.
“Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show,” Clapton said at the time, according to The Guardian.
Clapton also teamed up with Van Morrison to write the anti-lockdown song “Stand and Deliver,” the lyrics of which include the line: “Do you wanna be a free man / Or do you wanna be a slave?” You can check out that song below.
