    & of course it only took the establishment moments to come out attacking him https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2020/0918/1166086-ni-health-minister-criticises-morrison-over-new-songs/

    Maybe stupid lyrics...

    Lol, the establishment. He's just a ****ing eejit.

    Liam Gallagher, Ian Brown, Van Morrison - grump old and very old men!

    I trust Jedward are going to engage him in some lively debate.

    he travels every year to San Francisco to see his daughter in summer now he can't
    he has to make a few sacrifices

    Looks like Van just got on the cancel train.

    I'm a big fan. I've seen him many times in Ireland and the UK. Brilliant singer and songwriter. I hope to get to see him again. Having said all that he is talking nonsense

    There must be enough musicians now to start a tinfoil hat band. Him and Jim Corr can share solos.

    Yea if you’re not down with the Rte crap script of “saving lives” by wearing a piece of soiled cotton then you’re a version of Stalin, their once great socialist idol


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,216 ✭✭✭ Polar101


    I respect him as a singer and songwriter, but don't really care what his political (or current affairs) views are. I'm using my "freedom of choice" to get my political music from other sources.

    One of the all time grumpiest people in the music industry

    Van makes Morrissey look the most positive man in the world

    I don’t want or indeed need “salvation” from Covid or anything else thanks. Just the lunatic fringe who keep cheerleading nonsense that doesn’t work and never will work

    The advice is to wear a clean covering over mouth and nose. I've managed to wear once and wash so far....

    Ah sure.

    Perhaps decades of luvvies fawning over him has led to him believing his own publicity. I doubt anyone who isn't Michael D Higgins or Brian Kennedy will take a blind bit of notice of what the arrogant old bollix has to say.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,343 ✭✭✭ LessOutragePlz


    We need him to do a duet with Kanye West.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,444 ✭✭✭ Tork

    Would any room be big enough to fit those two egos?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 20 ✭✭✭ Restrooms


    I've no problem with what he's doing

    Freedom of speech and all that, we don't all have to be sheep

    He's a great musician, but he's always been a complete tool. This isn't surprising.

    By duet you mean dance together into a pool of hungry crocodiles? If so, yes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,284 ✭✭✭ PlentyOhToole


    Why has he come out against “etc” ? Has he been a grammar natzi all these years?


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,620 ✭✭✭✭ Wanderer78

    Well known to be an absolute arsehole, he must have gotten his medical science degree on the Internets as well

    I think VM is looking at the havoc caused to the music industry by Covid and these songs are an expression of his frustration with the situation. Wrong action though, imo.

    The industry is in serious trouble, and the government thinks by reducing some covid payments, it ll somehow motivate these folks!

    He doesn't want to wear a mask because he's so handsome.
