I have no opinion on his opinions on the pandemic, but I do like most of his music. 
Here he is trying to explain himself:

Found this. It was a lotta peoples. I was somewhere deep in the left throng facing the stage.

I also saw Pink Floyd Animals tour in the Festhalle Frankfurt. Not quite as large a crowd but just as densely packed.
The only show I ever attended to rival the numbers at Zeppelinfeld was in the Coliseum in Oakland Ca. somewhere summer '75-'76 to see UFO, Gary Wright, Fleetwood Mac, and Peter Frampton. It's coming alive! I was 20 yards from center stage on that one... 
Oh and I can't forget my trip to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco to attend the Outside Lands festival in 2012 courtesy of Radio Paradise. That was also a large crowd. Incredible 3 day lineup.
Also the second Lollapalooza in Raleigh, NC. maybe 40,000. Devil all up in it. Clapton nowhere to be seen...

I made it back in time to finally go home after a helluva two year ride.


Just for chance, it wasn't Baumholder?

I saw him over here in 1993 or '94 with Gary Moore as 'an' opening act, next to Jimmie Vaughan. Tickets were some outrageous 50 € then, if I remember right.  - Guess who was much better than the main mean act?!

Without vaxx or negative test, no one will get to play or visit any larger venues in Europe these days, afaik.  - Of course the soccer lobby made a deal with the Brits for the belated Euro-2020 championship. 

Ask the Guardian (and the usual suspects of liberal-socialist company media), and you get multitudes of multi-spreader events. Yeah, we all are going to die!!!

...Van Morrison coming to mind here.

Since vaccinated people can get the virus and pass it around, the worst problems seem to be lack of masking and too much mingling.  Come December, when we are all essentially unvaccinated again, are you going to get a booster, and then maybe again every 9 months?
 
I heard about a Pfizer exec asked if he had been vaccinated, who answered that he was waiting until one full year after Fauci takes it. I don't know if that means Fauci hasn't done it yet.
 
If Clapton were being serius, he would not play anywhere for the foreseeable future. In his defense I think he believes he is protecting the interests of musicians; but at the cost of human sacrifice, like most businessmen would do.

And then there’s ‘Layla’. Clapton was inspired to write the first part of the song having been given a copy of the Persian classical poet, Nizami Ganjavi’s book, The Story of Layla and Majnun. As we now know it is Clapton’s love song to Pattie Boyd, who at that time was married to George Harrison; she later married Clapton in 1979. It is also a song of two halves.

The first half recorded by the band on sixteen tracks including multi layered guitars by Clapton and a single track of Allman’s solos. After laying down his song Clapton returned to the studio to hear Jim Gordon playing a piano piece that he immediately loved and decided he wanted to add it to ‘Layla’ to complete the track; it proved to be an inspired decision of a happy coincidence. The composing credits on the song are Eric Clapton and Jim Gordon, but Gordon had in fact borrowed the melody from his former girlfriend.

According to Bobby Whitlock, “Jim took that piano melody from his ex-girlfriend Rita Coolidge. I know because in the D&B days I lived in John Garfield’s old house in the Hollywood Hills and there was a guesthouse with an upright piano in it. Rita and Jim were up there in the guesthouse and invited me to join in on writing this song with them called ‘Time.’ Her sister Priscilla wound up recording it with Booker T. Jones; Jim took the melody from Rita’s song and didn’t give her credit for writing it. Her boyfriend ripped her off.”
