I love his music and songs but I can't agree with him about the covid. Eric Clapton was vaccinated but had a reaction and is now anti-vaccination.

Van and Clapton are heroes in this stand they’re taking while catching all the usual abuse and ridicule from the uninformed and ignorant.

These people are the most susceptible to this potentially fatal illness. Go at it, if you want.

Clapton destroyed his "legacy" a long time ago as anyone who read this Rolling Stone piece would know:

Morrison's a notorious eccentric who has produced some sublime music, so to hear him spouting this unhinged nonsense is both a shock and very disappointing.

Youre joking. The man is a legend.

Don't know about the UK but in some countries public figures cannot successfully prevail on a claim of defamation of character.

Seems like he’s too sensitive to be a politician

I don't think Northern Ireland politicians can be described as sensitive, whatever their views.

So Van Morrison, creator of some of the best music of the past 50+ years, is a bit of a prat when it comes to Covid. It seems a bit counter-productive, though, to go down the litigation path to get him to shut up about it. Just let him shoot himself in the foot of his own accord.

Alfie Noakes, I had to chuckle when I read your post. Don’t worry about the great Eric Clapton’s legacy. It is unassailable, even against your mighty efforts. LOL.

Eh? Clapton hasn't made a decent record since about 1975. You and your Texas Taliban anti-vaxxers are quite welcome to him.

Alfie, LOL! See my previous post.

The trial will backfire on Swann because evidence will be introduced that lockdowns were ineffective and the “vaccines” don’t really work.

And the source of this evidence? From Van Morrison perhaps who suffered from cancelled concerts or those whose suffered from cancelled cancer treatments due to covid patients taking up hospital beds.
