Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker is vegetarian once again, and as he explained in an interview with Radio Big Boy, “almost full blown vegan.”

We’re pumped for Travis’s evolving compassionate lifestyle (and we’d like to point out that “Full Blown Vegan” would be an excellent album name). It’s also great that he’s getting his dad in on the action—as Travis explained, “My pops, he’s a Vietnam vet, hard-core, old-school—he used to make fun of me ’cause I didn’t eat meat … Now after being on tour and going to some of the spots, he’s at home trying to find vegan spots in that area.”

As for Travis’s decision to start dumping dairy foods? “Once you find out all the crazy stuff with dairy,” he says, “you’d probably second-guess it too, man.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
