Phil Collen (Def Leppard)


"Eating dead bodies started freaking me out, you know? I always kind of loved animals and stuff but I think it really hit home…when you actually figure out what you’re eating and all the suffering that the animals go through. So that was it for me. It was real ethical and moral things initially."

Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen stopped eating meat in the early 80s and went vegan in 2011.
