Iron Maiden vocalist and clearly responsible adult Bruce Dickinson was recently diagnosed with COVID. Thanks to his status as a vaccinated person, Dickinson said in an interview with Yahoo! Music that he feels he would’ve been sicker without it.
“[I am] absolutely fine … My belief is — and I stress, it’s a belief — that this proves that I would have been more sick if I’ve not taken the vaccine … I mean, I had both jabs. Everybody I know has had both jabs. And I’m quite happy about it. You know, none of us have started growing extra heads, suddenly wanting sidle up to 5G phones, or expressed a willingness to go down on Bill Gates. So, all of these things, I think it’s largely a myth!”
Dickinson also expressed his total disbelief toward people who don’t wear masks, and conspiracy nutjobs in general.
“I think they believe [conspiracy theories] because of their psychological makeup. They have a need to believe in these things. It’s the same as people that are going to sit on top of a mountain every year and wait for the world to end. And the world doesn’t end, but do they modify their beliefs?
“Actually, no. It strengthens them: ‘Yep, we were right all along. It is definitely going to end, just not this year. The rest of the world is against us!’ And that’s the way that some people think. It’s their mentality, and you’re probably not going to change that. But for the rest of us I would say, just get vaccinated. And if you do get sick, you won’t get that sick. It’ll just be like a mild case of the flu.”
