I was under the impression meat-eating by his crew was completely banned. Maybe I've misunderstood. If so, please correct me.

I thought so too, but after acmac mentioned that Abe talks about eating meat on tour, I now think I got that impression from sensational tabloid reports

And strict ban or no, honestly, I just wouldn't expect Paul to provide meat options in his catering.

Edit: It reminds me of a story mentioned on the morning radio show I like that Paul has even banned faux animal prints in his dressing room in his rider, but I haven't seen confirmation of that either. Sounded like another dramatic tabloid story.

I was also under the same impression, and I believe it was true of his late '80s/early '90s tours. I'll whisper this very quietly, but maybe it was more a Linda thing, as she became more "evangelical" about vegetarianism, and since her passing he has relaxed a bit more about it. However, he certainly does insist that crew only eat vegetarian at the venue, and has told local crew at venues that if they were not prepared to go along with that, their services would not be required.

Now, as the one who brought up the thing about it being his right to decide what he is prepared to offer as far as catering, I have no problem with that. Not allowing them to choose whether they want to use his backstage catering or bring their own alternative I'm not entirely supportive of. I think what people choose to eat should be their own choice.

I did find this Guardian interview with him about vegetarianism from 2010, where on-tour catering is discussed...

I found it interesting that he actually let his kids try chicken once to see for themselves. That certainly goes against the "Veggie or else" stance that some on here feel Paul gives off.

Now I understand more, I'm a little more forgiving.

^^^ Yes, it's very good he let them try meat. If I ever had children, I'd let them make their own minds up about whether it's ethical or not.

Though, of course, his response might have been different had they not disliked the chicken dish, but started jumping up and down declaring that they loved meat, and they wanted meat all the time, and to try lots of different kinds.

Good point. Even if they did like it, it sounds like their mother was a good cook, though, and that probably helped counter what they were missing. I often tell my friend who hosts the orphan Thanksgiving dinner I go to that if she cooked all my meals, I'd go vegan. :-)

Perhaps, but perhaps not. Kids are weird like that sometimes. For instance, my wife and I HATE meat loaf, but we let our son try it and he loves it, so much so that my mother-in-law knows what to make him when he visits their house.

I would do the same with my kids.  I get guff from people about this mentality:  If I have children I will raise them off vegetarian… but once they were old enough to make those decisions I would let them try meat and then eat it if they like it..  but I would want them to know where it comes from.  It may sound harsh, but it's the truth and I would want them to know before they ate it.

I have been a vegetarian for 5 years now, and a couple of years ago my husband decided to go veggie as well.  I didn't push him into it (despite what his parents believed ahdn_paul_01).  He came to it completely on his own.  Living with me was a big influence, though I didn't try to make him change.  He understood why I was doing it and was always really open to talking about it.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

It's 11/12/13, well for those who write the month first anyway.

We can celebrate this combination again next month with those who put the day first.

It probably was on one of those scrolls in the library at Alexandria that was ransacked.

mmm, you might be interested in this story about Treasure Island that came to my email today.

A really bad singer (and I mean REALLY BAD... dude sounds like a seal getting assaulted) who tried out for American Idol back in its more popular years and was rejected right out of the gate. Yet he caught on because mainstream America has no taste and actually had a little run at stardom. Thankfully, he went back to the hole he came from.

I think it was less a case of legitimate bad taste and more "so bad it's good" irony. Plus/ he came across as very sweet, so I think people enjoyed watching him bask in his 15 minutes. He was featured on Jimmy Kimmel in skits for a while.

Cooking is a weird experience.

All the other times i've followed the recipe for scones to the letter and measurement and no rise, nothing. They just sit there mocking me with their smallness. Today i mess the recipe up by adding too much milk, have  to do very rough guess corrective adjustments and what do you know, the damn things rise. I don't whether to laugh or cry.

Sir John Tavener, the classical composer, died today at the age of 69 following a long illness.

Two of his earliest works were released by Apple Records. The Whale was premiered at the 1969 Proms, and recorded and released by Apple the following year. Ringo was one of the "speakers" on the recording. The following year Apple released Celtic Requiem.

John and Ringo were both great fans of his work, and he was considered one of the most important modern classical composers, and is perhaps best known because of his compositions for the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.

hahahaha.

When people are sending out all their "I'm thankful fors" this month, I keep thinking that I'm thankful I've never had to be an executioner (hanging, guillotine, firing squad, electric chair, lethal injection, etc.)

Last year I said that I was thankful I wasn't a second or lower class passenger on the Titanic.

Does anyone here have the Anthology Director's Cut DVDs? And if so; what do ye think about them?

I've been looking at them on the internet but I don't think mam will let me buy bootlegs for €40+ a-hard-days-night-george-10 They are meant to be worth it purely for George's comments alone but what do the rest of y'all think?
