Home Music Rockers Eric Clapton, Van Morrison Fail in Anti-Lockdown Effort, Song “Stand and...

Eric Clapton made a big mistake recording Van Morrison’s “Stand and Deliver” song.

The anti-lockdown anthem was met with apathy, if not disgust, upon its Friday release. Over the weekend the song sold a mere 1,100 copies.

For the creators of “Layla” and “Moondance,” the total snub by the music community is a sharp rebuke to their short-sighted, nearly racist take on what governments must do to protect everyone from COVID.

The song is so nit-witty that it compares the lockdown to slavery.

Do you wanna be a free man
Or do you wanna be a slave?
Do you wanna be a free man
Or do you wanna be a slave?
Do you wanna wear these chains
Until you’re lying in the grave

Clearly, their cultural appropriation of black music all these years has turned their heads into empty gourdes. What a shame.

Most people would rather hear Adam Ant’s long ago hit, “Stand and Deliver.”
