For 56 years, Eric Clapton never brought politics into his music. But when covid struck, the guitarist took a forceful — and controversial — stand.

To be fair, the article addresses that history a bit where the tweet copy does not (mostly through a great Vernon Reid analysis) -- but I actually think the "how did we get here?" analysis with clapton, broadly, is not very compelling. It's an easy path to chart.
