26. Not an inspiration to me.

Their charitable efforts are welcome, but why don't these two "legends" team up to urge the US Congress to provide financial relief to those in need? This would do much to "save music" and "save musicians", as well as restaurateurs and other small businesses and their millions of employees. I know nothing about Morrison's health, but Clapton has disclosed that he is diabetic with a number of related conditions. If Clapton gets covid-19, he is likely to become very ill indeed. Their thought processes seem sclerotic, but then again they've always been entitled jerks. I've never understood the "genius" label either, which has been used to excuse the gaffes and prejudice, when so much of their work is derivative and not as good as the original.
