Legendary musician Van Morrison is speaking out against COVID-19 “pseudoscience” and calling for singers, musicians, producers, promoters, etc. to rescue the music industry.
A post on the Irish singer’s website titled “Save Live Music” explains, the band has been “doing socially distant gigs” recently, but ensures readers, “This is not a sign of compliance or acceptance of the current state of affairs.”
The 74-year-old Morrison says he’s simply trying to get his band “up and running and out of the doldrums.”
“I call on my fellow singers, musicians, writers, producers, promoters and others in the industry to fight with me on this,” the statement reads. “Come forward, stand up, fight the pseudo-science and speak up.”
“Brown Eyed Girl” writer Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is apparently the only person in the music industry Morrison has teamed up with so far, but they are looking for more industry veterans to step forward.
