Paul Mc Cartney
Paul went Vegetarian over 21 years ago. He has been a strong supporter of P.E.T.A. and feels one of the ways to stop animal cruelty and help save our planet is to go Vegetarian or even Vegan.
When asked if his commitment to animals has strengthened over the years, he replies, "That's right. I have no regrets. I don't miss any meat dishes whatsoever. I do miss the smell of bacon, but I wouldn't touch it because I know where it comes from. When I see bacon, I see a pig, I see a little friend, and that's why I can't eat it. Simple as that. But I'll eat Linda's veggie bacon. All her food was so good. Steve Martin came around for a barbecue once. I was grilling, and he said, 'Oh, no, I can't have any of that.' I asked why not, and he said, 'Sorry, I'm vegetarian.' I said, 'You didn't know we are?! Everything on the grill is veggie!' He said, 'Ahhh' and ate three veggie burgers and then asked where he could buy them."
Linda had a decade-long association with PETA, begun when she learned of the PETA-sponsored Rock Against Fur benefit concert organized in New York in 1988. In the ensuing years, the McCartneys were involved in a number of events to protect animals rights, including campaigns to prevent Gillette from testing products on animals and banning fur prizes on Wheel of Fortune. Paul is asking fans to donate to charities and research groups that do not indulge in animal testing, or, in what he calls "the best tribute," go veggie. This is Paul with his doggie friend Martha For sure, Paul would rescue any animal he knew was facing slaughter.
