Vegetarianism and veganism has always been associated with the hippie movement of the 60s, advocating a peaceful and alternative lifestyle. Lots of rock stars were part of the movement and have decided to maintain the diet and lifestyle for various reason over the years. Most rock stars sympathize with animal rights and fight against animal cruelty and thus give up all animal products for ethical reasons. Others are going vegan for health reasons. In the world of rock n’ roll, health isn’t really the number one priority, but times are changing. Many head banging musicians are now living an alternative lifestyle that involves more vegetables and less booze. They may be a minority, but they are proud and they inspirational, encouraging others to do the same.
