Eric Clapton, the legendary blues-rock guitarist, and alleged skeptic of the condition that caused the worldwide pandemic has now officially tested positive. This has been confirmed by Clapton himself according to a post on his website. It is being stated that the ‘Tears In Heaven’ singer tested positive performing shortly after his concert at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall. The girlfriend for this major name would recently reveal this Eric Clapton drug use.
According to the post: “[Eric] has been told by his medical advisors that if he were to resume traveling and performing too soon, it could substantially delay his full recovery,” the post adds. “Eric is also anxious to avoid passing on any infection to any of his band, crew, promoters, their staff, and of course, the fans.”
Due to Clapton testing positive, two shows on European tour have been postponed. The shows affected were originally scheduled for Tuesday, May 17 in Zurich, Switzerland and Wednesday, May 18 in Milan, Italy are now expected to take place later in the year.
Of course, Clapton would state in his world that he is not a skeptic at all. During a recent interview with The Real Music Observer, the iconic former member of Cream would proclaim that he is simply a lover of freedom of choice over anything else. Credit to Guitar.com for the following quote.
“I’m making a rod for my own back by talking about ‘the thing’ and ‘the things,” he stated, “but one thing about the thing I would like to make clear – because I have to keep reestablishing it – is I’m neither anti nor pro. I’m freedom of choice, really, and respect for other people, and kindness, and the things that used to motivate, or were things to aspire to. Aspirations towards goodness. And… in an abstract way, religion – I believe in God and I think there’s a purpose. And this seems to be my purpose for the moment.”
