Eric Clapton worried he would "never play again" after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. The English guitarist detailed his "disastrous" experience in a newly surfaced letter, whose authenticity was confirmed by Rolling Stone .
The 76-year-old artist shared his thoughts about COVID last year in his anti-lockdown track "Stand and Deliver" with Van Morrison. But after receiving both jabs of the AstraZeneca vaccine, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer blamed the "propaganda" about vaccines in a lengthy critique about his experience that Italian architect and film producer Robin Monotti Graziadei shared on the Telegram messaging app.
"In February this year, before I learned about the nature of the vaccines, (and being 76 with ephezyma) I was in the avant garde. I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days, I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one," he wrote.
