Paul McCartney, the co-lead vocalist and bass player of The Beatles, has celebrated the world vegetarian day of his followers on Instagram and remarked the fact that he’s stepped into the 45th year of a vegetarian lifestyle now.

The iconic musician Paul McCartney has been posting some amazing throwback pictures on Instagram for a while now. Right after announcing the 50th-anniversary edition of his debut album, ‘McCartney,’ with a lovely photo of himself with his daughter, Paul has taken the platform to wish a happy vegetarian day to everyone.

As you might know, McCartney has been a vegetarian since 1975. He and his wife, Linda, were vegetarians for most of their 29-years marriage. They decided to stop consuming meat after Paul saw lambs in a field as they were eating a meal of lamb.

Soon after, the couple became outspoken animal rights activists. In his first interview after Linda’s death, Paul McCartney promised to continue working for animal rights, and in 1999, he spent £3,000,000 to ensure the brand, Linda McCartney Foods, remained free of genetically engineered ingredients.

Here’s what Paul McCartney said in his recent Instagram post:

“Today is World Vegetarian Day. Have a happy one! – Paul.”
