Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickison shared his thoughts on the conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccines and the anti-vaxxers during a recent interview with Yahoo.
This month, Bruce had to postpone all his events, such as ‘An Evening With Bruce Dickinson,’ after testing positive for COVID-19. Even though Bruce stated that he was just fine, he also pointed out that it could have been worse due to his age if he hadn’t gotten the vaccination.
In the conversation, Bruce talked about the anti-vaxxers and explained why their concerns are nothing but myths or conspiracy theories. As Dickinson said, the vaccine has no connection to anything like Bill Gates, 5G, or even more.
Furthermore, Bruce confirmed once again that his condition could have been worse if he hadn’t gotten fully vaccinated and said that he still doesn’t understand why people are so against the vaccination and even masks. In addition, Dickinson also advised everybody to get vaccinated because if you catch the novel coronavirus, it is easier to get over it.
Bruce Dickinson talked about the anti-vaxxers in the interview:
“Frankly it pisses me off. I’ve just done some theater shows, but it’s not the same as a giant, fire-breathing monster in front of 20,000 people. My belief is — and I stress, it’s a belief — that this proves that I would have been more sick if I’ve not taken the vaccine.
I mean, I had both jabs. Everybody I know has had both jabs. And I’m quite happy about it. You know, none of us have started growing extra heads, suddenly wanting sidle up to 5G phones, or expressed a willingness to go down on Bill Gates. So, all of these things, I think it’s largely a myth!
Honestly find it incredible that some people are still resistant… And I mean, the mask thing I genuinely do not understand. I think they believe because of their psychological makeup. They have a need to believe in these things. It’s the same as people that are going to sit on top of a mountain every year and wait for the world to end. And the world doesn’t end, but do they modify their beliefs?
Actually, no. It strengthens them: ‘Yep, we were right all along. It is definitely going to end, just not this year. The rest of the world is against us!’ And that’s the way that some people think. It’s their mentality, and you’re probably not going to change that. But for the rest of us I would say, just get vaccinated. And if you do get sick, you won’t get that sick. It’ll just be like a mild case of the flu.”
Later in the conversation, Bruce Dickinson also talked about their brand new album that will be released in less than three days and mentioned what a great record it is.
