Doctors, even in the field of alternative medicine including naturopathy, sometimes recommend that certain patients add red meat to their diet because they have special problems that cannot be addressed with a vegetarian diet.  Certainly, someone like that could find another job if they were offered the opportunity to work for Paul's organization.  But that doesn't make Paul's position on this right.

I don't think that's a common thing…  but I'm sure it does happen.  What is it that someone would need from red meat?  I take B12 and Iron supplements…  and protein comes from MANY sources.  What is it this red meat would provide?  Not trying to argue, I'm just curious.

I can't remember exactly what the medical explanation is; I just know I worked for a naturopath who, like most naturopaths, is firmly acculturated in the whole alternative medicine world and health foods etc. which includes the benefits of a more vegetarian diet, and yet for a certain minority of patients, advised them to eat red meat.

The supposedly small number of a minority is not relevant to whether it's right to discriminate against them, I would think.

From Paul's site:

Paul was met by thousands of excited Japanese fans on Saturday after he flew into Osaka for his first tour of Japan in 11 years.

Paul's "Out There" tour will see him performing to fans in Osaka, Fukuoka and Tokyo over the next two weeks and his fist gig of the tour – at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka – is taking place as we write this new story!

To mark this special occasion PaulMcCartney.com recently sat down with Paul to do a Q&A about Japan, including questions from Japanese fans. We will publish these on the website over the next couple of weeks in both English and Japanese. Read the first question below:

PaulMcCartney.com:
"What are your favourite memories of Japan?"

Paul:
"Some of my favourite memories are staying at a traditional Japanese hotel in Kyoto, sleeping on the floor and then sitting around by the open fire in the morning. Also playing to fantastic Japanese audiences!"

Check back later this week for the next update.

He didn't mention his week in a Japanese jail in 1980? :P Seriously, I wonder if he still gets asked that over there?

:-D I imagine his PR teams tells journalists that question is forbidden. Every article I read on his return brings it up, though. So often, in fact, for a moment, I thought this was his first tour (or would-be tour) in Japan since 1980. But he did one in the early 2000s.

Reminds me of years ago, probably back in the '90s, Morrissey was playing a gig in Scotland – I think it was Glasgow, and every ticket had an offer for a free Big Mac printed on the back. Mr. "Meat-Is-Murder" was not happy.

:lol: I'm a huge Smiths/Moz fan so this makes me laugh, not least because I'm reading his just-released memoir right now…such a strange individual (not that I didn't already think that).

And parlance, he always seemed pretty open discussing it…hell, his own daughter asked him about it in the Wingspan doc.

Oh, really? I haven't seen it yet. Another to add to the long list. I would think that would get tedious after a while, though.

I'm sure it does. Wingspan is pretty good, although it doesn't get into as much detail as I would've liked. It's all on YouTube (here's part 1, the rest of the parts are contained within):

LOVE this.  Watched it more than once.  Mary interviewing him is so cute.

Meant to x-post this from the news last night: A photo, a summary and the setlist from Paul's Osaka concert at The Macca Report. Nothing about the robot, darn.

Paul answered another question at his site:

QUESTION 2:
PaulMcCartney.com:
"What is your favourite Japanese food?"

Paul:
"Having been vegetarian for many years, in support of animals rights and the environment, my favourite Japanese food is vegetarian sushi with avocado and cucumber."

Is this part of that fascinating monthly fan club asking Paul questions thing or something far more revealing? Next up i'm going for what Paul's favourite Japanese word is. Asking about his time in jail or memories of times past in Japan would be far too dull.

It is different from the monthly Q&A. However, the questions are on the same sub-basement level.

Oh, thanks. Another to add to the pointless list. Is this down to twitter's 140 character limit or just sheer banality?

We can't blame this on Twitter. I'm finding these on his actual site.

It's just a spin-off version of the monthly Q&A specifically for the Japanese fans since he is on tour there. The way they space out the questions, it makes it seem like they had to work really hard and coming up with the questions and that Paul had to do heavy labor to think up his answer.

Paul's website homepage has some Japanese writing on it for the time being.

Then it should be made into a competition – which set of questions contain the crappiest questions?

I won't keep you guys in suspense any longer. Question #3 has been answered.

QUESTION 3:
PaulMcCartney.com:
What are your favourite places in Japan?

Paul:
"Although I don’t know all of Japan two of my favourite places are Tokyo and Kyoto. Tokyo has a modern city vibe which I always find exciting and Kyoto has the historical ancient traditions of Japanese culture which is interesting to people like myself."

The McCartney Photo Blog posted a photo of Paul meeting with victims of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Tokyo, and I found a Belfast Telegraph article on the meeting.

Sir Paul McCartney has welcomed families who were forced to leave their homes as a result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster to a concert in Tokyo.

The musician invited 10 people who had been displaced by the meltdown at the Japanese power plant, which occurred as a result of the earthquake and tsunami in the region two and a half years ago.

Around 160,000 people are still unable to return home after being moved from the disaster zone due to safety fears.

Sir Paul invited the group, including a couple in their 50s, a 30-year-old man and his 20-year-old niece from the evacuation area to a performance at the Tokyo Dome, which was part of his Out There tour.

He met them – all keen fans – beforehand, shaking hands and giving words of encouragement as he listened to their stories.

The party also included two pupils and a teacher from the Iwaki Municipal Middle School, which has been taking in youngsters who have had to leave areas with high radiation levels, and a couple whose shop and house were destroyed by the tsunami and have since had a baby.

Sir Paul said: "At this time, we are focused on a lot of the problems that Japan has had, particularly in the last year or two. So, I always like to think that our concerts can have a healing effect, that they can help people through crises."
