It's amazing how many classic rock artists are becoming involved in these issues! Steven Tyler from Aerosmith is fighting to ban veal crates for calves and gestation crates for pigs in his home state of Massachusetts; Paul McCartney is a long-time supporter of Meat Free Monday; and, just a couple of week ago I was talking with Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen who told me he's been vegan for years!
