Slipknot’s Shawn Crahan Warns Anti-vaxxer Musicians About The Risk They Have To Take
Slipknot percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan revealed the biggest risk of not getting vaccinated during a recent appearance on Behemoth frontman Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski’s podcast.
In the conversation, Clown shared his thoughts about the coronavirus vaccine and listed the reason why he will get vaccinated as well as warning his fellow musicians about the risk they would take.
According to Clown, they are going to make it mandatory in Canada, which won’t be happening if the vaccine is not trusted. Additionally, Clown stated that he has to have a vaccine to go to Canada
Clown’s opinion about the vaccine:
“I don’t like talking about things unless I know they’re facts, but I have heard this from a reliable source, that Canada is gonna make it mandatory, to be able to come into Canada, you’re gonna have to have proof of the vaccine.
So, I’ve never had to get a flu shot to go anywhere, but now to do my living, I’m gonna have to have a vaccine — proof of it — to go to Canada.”
While Clown was saying that he wants to be on the stage once again and meet with the fans live, he also mentioned that it’s important for him to embrace the people he loves.
Furthermore, Clown revealed the biggest risk of not getting vaccinated by saying that you could get the different strand of the coronavirus in some other place and might never leave the country to see your family.
Here is what Clown said:
“ I wanna tour. And most importantly, as long as my family gets it and wants me to get it, then I’ll get it, because I wanna be able to hug my fans again; I wanna be able to embrace the people that have needed me and that I’ve needed.
And the way that I’ve been explained by the doctors I go to, they basically say, ‘Hey, get the vaccine,’ because what we do, we’re gonna be around a lot of people that aren’t gonna take it, and they’re gonna be sick.”
“You and I are around great amounts of people very day — tremendous amounts of people,” Crahan added. “Meet-and-greets, handshakes, people coughing in our face, blah blah blah. So, I believe in it, and I believe what the doctors say.
It’s, like, look, the idea is to keep me out of the hospital, and if I’m gonna be around people that choose to make it a conspiracy or they don’t believe in it or they just are out, whatever, I risk being in a different country and getting a different strand that I might never leave that country again and not see my family.”
