Eric Clapton helps fund an anti-vax band by donating more than $1,300 to the members...


Eric Clapton has donated to a small UK-based anti-vaccine band via a GoFundMe campaign, Rolling Stone reported Sunday.

The 76-year-old guitarist reportedly gave the group more than $1,300 via the campaign and even lent the members the use of his family's van to tour in.

The rocker appears to be putting his money where his mouth is after making several anti-vaccine and anti-lockdown statements throughout the past year as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on among unvaccinated people across the globe.

Jam for Freedom appears to be ragtag group of musicians that allow amateur players to sit in on their outdoor shows.

The group states that 'no medical records, medical devices or mandatory drugs will ever be required to attend our festivals or events' on its website, and it appears to have popped up after the start of the pandemic.

Their lyrics feature anti-vaccine lines like, 'You can stick your poison vaccine up your a**.' 

Members of libertarian-leaning outfit are shown arguing with police officers in a short video posted to its website after officers tried to shut down a performance in a park that appeared to violate noise regulations.

In addition to loaning out his van, Clapton allegedly got in touch with band member Cambel Mclaughlin via text.
