There appears to be a trend in Tampa Bay surrounding musicians who have notably fought against COVID-19 protocols and vaccinations, starting with Eric Clapton’s performance at Amalie Arena last fall.

With Van Morrison and Aaron Lewis also on the way this year, let this be an unfriendly reminder that in a COVID-infested Florida, there’s always room for one more anti-vax asshole. Especially the ultra-patriotic ones who shat their pants to avoid the Vietnam draft, just to later call the survivors of a school shooting “soulless.”
