Musician and songwriter Russ Irwin clearly has talent to
addition to his years as a keyboardist and backing vocalist with Aerosmith (and
cowriting the band's 2012 hit,
"What Could Have Been Love"), he has performed with many of music's
leading acts, including Sting, Cheap Trick, and PETA fave Bryan Adams.
Now, in an exclusive new video for PETA, Russ shows that he
has plenty of heart and soul to match his musical skills as he relates how he
chose to go vegan out of concern for animals, his health, and the environment:
Russ' new solo album is titled Get Me Home—and you can bring home some of his style of compassion with your own free vegetarian/vegan starter kit from PETA.
