but no it does not seem so. It is how much ****e people can stir up on others....So what you want is nobody can be different in their ways of living/thinking..just one way because you might cause harm to others. You still have freedom rights to protect yourself from harm that medications do cause.....So people suddenly have to have one side only...Clones... .
Covid 19 is the worst right now, no denying that.
.. But it is acceptable to poison us all on a daily basis with force fed antibiotics put into every animal that we eat, spray the crops with deadly substances, other drugs plastics even in ice cream.. in everything around us that is the cause of more deaths on a daily basis.
Give me strength.

And who's behind all this villainy, Dianne?

On the strength of the Clapton autobiog I once read, I can say the EC never had any illusions about being god, Trollheart - but he was a real self-absorbed drama queen in my opinion. His love affair with Pattie Boyd, we are led to believe, is Romeo&Juliette, John&Yoko, etc. all rolled into one.
How many times can a person hit rock bottom? I always assumed it was like one or maybe two in a lifetime, whereas EC, victim of various addictions, was hitting what he called "a rock bottom" every other chapter of his book.(That little word "a" is significant, because it tells us "one of various") Bits of his autobiog read like a teenager's endless weekend in Hell: "Pattie didn't call. I'm going to kill myself - or perhaps I'll do a ton of drugs instead."

But as Dianne says, he has impressive musical pedigree; great skills, of course, and a personal manner that made him a popular collaborator with other musicians. Very commendable too is his Crossroads Festival and charity work with (I think) addicted musicians.

Up in the Pantheon of high-achieving rock stars, perhaps it's too much to expect him to make good choices elsewhere. His "keep britain white" rant was way out of line imo, and on medical science it seems like he can't distinguish between anecdotal and statistical evidence. In that, sadly, he is far from alone :(

Given the wonderful pages of precise musical analysis that you contribute to MB, this is an uncharacteristically concise assessment from you, TH !

Does it indicate a change of writing style, I wonder: "This album: brill. That album: a f*cker." ;)

Hear, hear. And thanks for at least trying to prevent what was sure to be an explosive and potentially nasty debate. That's all she was trying to do, Dianne.

As far as your (ahem) opinions, of course you have a right to them but you also have to understand that those that clearly disagree have a right to call you out on it. I was so tempted to ask you who you thought owned England (and from what I know about English racism, I think I already know the answer), but the better angels, and Marie, prevailed.

Anyway, as far as Clapton goes, I'll just say I'm very disappointed in the man personally, especially given his friendship with George Harrison, but I'll try to enjoy the music at least (Clapton isn't the first person to disappoint me and I'm sure he won't be the last).

I never said I liked Eric Clapton. I went to some of his first concerts in Wallington Halls, Stafford Road,Wallington..where it was just a loved the music.
Think we all feel a soap box time...Just about all my close Family is affected by Cancer in one way or another and mostly it is about how we live now.
I get to see this week maybe or next the outcome of my prob. Guess I am not up for this kind of a send up.
Would rather just enjoy the music really

on a lighter note....

Ah! If only it were that simple, Dianne ! ;)

I watched this with interest. If fact most of the performers behaved pretty well, imo. I hardly noticed that some of them were angry, but it made me realize that along with the singing, they have to be ready for a bit of crowd control too. My favourite moment: Lady Gaga sounding like someone's mum: "If you're going to fight over it, neither of you can have it!" Haha!

My point about Clapton might not have been made clearly enough, Lisna. Obviously, I was referring (as you doubtless know) to the popular phrase "Clapton is God" but also pointing out that by trying to influence people's opinions for the worse, in a struggle between life and death (i.e., telling them not take the vaccine and advocating against it) he is in fact playing God.

To lighten the mood a little, a joke:

Chad Kroeger is being interviewed backstage at a rock benefit. With typical humility he answers the probing question of why he went into music, thusly: "God told me to."
Coming in to rapturous applause from onstage, guitar slung over his shoulder, Gary Moore scowls "I said no such thing!" :laughing:

Everybody knows that the MB mods poison the water with antibiotics to turn the frogs gay
