Travis rocker Fran Healy has thanked Sir Paul McCartney for agreeing to perform on his new solo album, by converting his entire family to vegetarianism.
Healy was so stunned and humbled to land the devout vegetarian for one of the tracks on his upcoming release, he and his wife Nora decided to pay back his generosity by giving up meat.
Healy adds "Nora and I were sitting and thinking of a thankyou present and I suggested going vegetarian. Our son is already one, so it would mean we would all be on the same boat (sic).
"I met Paul at his show in Berlin and told him what we wanted to do. He was visibly flabbergasted."
And MCCartney was so touched by the token, he made sure the Healy family's vegetarian mealtimes were as scrumptious as possible.
The Travis star reveals, "The FedEx man delivered three Linda MCCartney (vegetarian) cookbooks."
The Healys are so committed to the cause, they enjoyed a veggie Christmas dinner and haven't wavered once.
The singer adds, "I haven't had any longing for meat or fish yet."
