In December of last year, Travis frontman Fran Healy announced on his blog that he was pledging to go vegetarian to thank Paul McCartney for performing on the group’s upcoming album “Wreckorder.”

Healy wrote, “Nora [his wife] and I were sitting and were thinking of a thank you present and I suggested going vegetarian. Our son is already one so it would mean we would all on the same boat. I met Paul at his show in Berlin and told him what we wanted to do. He was visibly flabbergasted. Three days later the Fed Ex man delivered three Linda McCartney cook books. We LOVE Paul.”

So the question begs to be asked: Did Fran Healy stick to his promise? The answer is yes, according to Spinner.com.

Healy told the online music magazine, ”I’m quite Scottish about it. Whether you promise your dog you’re gonna take him for a walk, it’s a promise and I’m quite loyal when it comes to things like that.”

The 37-year-old singer said the transition to a meatless diet was easy for him thanks to a dream three years prior that had disturbing imagery of a cow being slaughtered. The nightmare was so bothersome, it caused Healy to go vegetarian for a time period that lasted six months. Now the rocker says that he is sticking with the new lifestyle and has ditched meat for good.
