Eric Clapton raised eye-popping sum for RFK Jr's presidential campaign

Rock and roll legend Eric Clapton raised $2.2 million for Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., at a recent campaign event.

Clapton on Monday performed at a Los Angeles fundraiser for Kennedy in support of his primary campaign against President Biden.

Video footage of the concert made its rounds online, showing the Yardbirds alum shredding in front of a Kennedy 2024 banner.

The private concert brought in $2.2 million to Kennedy's campaign coffers, according to a campaign press release. The campaign said it raised $1 million while the remaining $1.2 million went to a political action committee supporting the Democrat's presidential bid.

Tickets to the fundraiser cost a cool $6,600, the Daily Mail reported.

"I am deeply grateful to Eric Clapton for bringing his musical artistry and rebellious spirit to my gathering in Los Angeles last night," Kennedy said in the press release.

"I sometimes think that in our divided society, it is music rather than any kind of intellectual agreement that has the most potential to bring us together again," Kennedy said. "Eric sings from the depths of the human condition."

"If he sees in me the possibility of bringing unity to our country, it is only possible because artists like him invoke a buried faith in the limitless power of human beings to overcome any obstacle," he added...............

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

I think RFKjr and Clapton are in agreement about the covid vacs.  :shrug: Seems like I remember reading about Clapton taking a lot of flak over his anit-vac stance. That could be the common cause between them.

Although I admire Clapton's musical gifts, I still wouldn't listen to any artist about politics. Well, maybe Alice Cooper.
