The founding member and co-lead vocalist of Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Byrds, David Crosby, recently responded to a fan’s question on his Twitter account and revealed his views on Eric Clapton‘s new song which protests COVID-19 restrictions.

As you may recall, the blues and rock guitarist Eric Clapton released a song in collaboration with the Northern Irish musician Van Morrison earlier this month. Their song ‘Stand and Deliver‘ can be described as a protest against the United Kingdom government’s strict COVID-19 regulations and restrictions.

While the song was praised by some, others criticized it for provoking people to not follow the rules and thus, creating a greater risk for their fellow citizens. The song was also censored by numerous websites and it keeps being reposted on YouTube. The tone of the song can be perfectly described with the lyric ‘Do you wanna be a free man, Do you wanna be a slave?’

As you all know, David Crosby loves using his Twitter account to share his views on social and political matters, talk about rock music and musicians, and interact with his fans. Recently, a follower asked him about his thoughts on Eric Clapton’s new song, and the response was shocking, to say the least.

David Crosby said that he found the song dumb and childish and that it doesn’t make sense for them to protest masks and lockdown as it has been proven that they are the only way people can protect themselves and stop the virus from spreading. He added that he knew Van is ‘kind of a d*ck‘ but that Eric definitely surprised him.

When asked about his views on Van Morrison, Crosby said that he is definitely talented and that he makes good music but as far as he knows, his personality is not that good. However, he also said that a lot of people say the same thing about him, so, he can’t be sure.

Here’s what Crosby’s follower asked him:

“What’s your take on Clapton/Van Morrison and the anti-lockdown songs?”

To which Crosby responded:

“Dumb, childish. Masks and lockdown are how you beat this, proof is already there, New Zealand for instance. Van is kind of a Dick anyway but I’m surprised at Eric.”

The same follower responded to Crosby by saying:

“I always had a sinking suspicion that Van Morrison was a dickhead.

To which Crosby responded:

“Talented, makes good records, but… yeah that’s what my friends who know him say but then, lots of people think the same about me.”
