It was a gesture that was definitely more long-lasting and meaningful than a bouquet of flowers: Fran Healy of the band Travis thought of the perfect way to thank Sir Paul McCartney for contributing bass lines to a track on Healy’s just-released solo debut album, Wreckorder. He—and his family—went vegetarian.
Healy recalls, “I thought, Paul’s a big veggie, my son’s already vegetarian, it’d be nice to maybe have the whole family do it, so I asked my wife and she said, ‘That’s a great idea, and what a way to say thank you.'” Talk about the gift that keeps on giving!
Thank you—and good luck!
