I agree with you, in a way. I can see Paul being mad about meat being sold on a stall ''dedicated'' to him, but ''banning'' it anywhere near him altogether is a bit much, I think. No, it's not hard to be veggie for a while, but isn't it nice to be able to have your own choice? You're not going to turn a job offer down on the basis you're hungry and you like meat, as wrong as I think it is, but I don't think it's entirely fair.

Would people actually turn down a job offer to work for Paul McCartney because they couldn't eat meat?  I just can't understand that.  Seems like a small price to pay… if you even want to call it that.  Again, I am a bias opinion…  I mean, the meat-free thing isn't even just a moral thing anymore, a lot of people do it strictly for health reasons.  Really, he's doing his staff a favour.  But for people like Paul and myself who have done if for years, it's not a big deal because it's a way of life…  and once you do it for a while, you wonder why you ever needed meat in the first place.

I don't know how we got on this topic here, since it we were discussing a Beatles cafe that serves meat, and not how Paul feeds his crew.

Nevertheless, based on the discussion at the questions you'd ask Paul thread, it doesn't sound like Paul is that totalitarian about people not eating meat if his own drummer can write openly about eating gourmet burgers. It's rather that, as you say, mja, if Paul is footing the bill, the choices are going to be vegetarian. Which I think is fair.

The topic is "Paul's Out There Tour"… so it's not like we're going off topic, it's just where the conversation headed.  a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I didn't say it was off topic. It headed that way because you made a connection between Morrissey not being happy with the cross-signals of selling meat with the message "Meat is Murder" with Paul not wanting meat served on his tour:

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.

I am kind of a bias opinion with this stuff because I am a vegetarian.  I know Morrissey is pretty in-your-face about it, but I wouldn't blame the guy for being pissed off about that, I would be.

It's the same with Paul not wanting meat on his tour.  Is it that big of a deal for people not to eat it for a while?  If they don't like it, they don't have to work for Paul McCartney.  

It is a personal choice to be a vegetarian and I don't push it on people….  but really, it's not the worst thing in the world.  

 

But no one was arguing against Paul's right to be a vegetarian or to serve his crew what he wants on his bill. Mja was pointing out that Paul wouldn't be happy with the Beatles cafe serving meat, and I agreed.

I'm pretty sure you and I are arguing the same thing, LHL, so... no argument here. :-)

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.
