UPDATE: From the comments: “Questioning authority, resistance and protests were the stuff of our youth. Clapton and Morrison’s response IS what I expect of them. F the fascist authorities and administrative nazi enablers. The UK could use a few million others to stand with them.”

Plus: “I don’t know when this distressing trend of musicians not toeing the establishment line appeared, but it has to be quelled instantly! Popular art and music is all about supporting the dominant narrative!”
