Rocker Morrissey is adamant about performing in a meat-free environment — so much so that he regularly bans all food “that used to have a face” from concert halls. Case in point was his most recent gig at Webster Hall in NY this week. From the article,
“The ardent vegetarian – whose second album with his former group The Smiths was titled ‘Meat Is Murder’ – demanded the Webster Hall venue be a meat-free zone before, during and immediately after his performance on Wednesday night. A source said: ‘There were no deli sandwiches, sushi, pepperoni pizza or anything else that used to have a face. Even the cleaning staff were happy to do their part by bringing in veggie sandwiches for lunch.'”
Apparently, Morrissey also prohibits his staff from eating meat and will fire anyone on the spot if caught doing so.
Badass man, absolutely badass.
