I admit that I am a sucker for magazines, especially music issues. I was pushing the grocery cart through Super Stop & Shop when I happened upon a new publication, VegNews. The cover image caught my eye and next thing I knew I was placing it on the checkout conveyer belt.
If you want the tree free edition browse over to Zinio.
The We’re In The Band special edition (19 page spread) features three articles by vegan music industry insiders, mega-mogul Russell Simmons (Beats and Eats), hardcore rocker John Joseph (Guest Editor:Punk Planet, main article written by Hillary Pollick (Assistant Editor)), and Goo Goo Dolls drummer Mike Malinin (Meat is Murder). Combined they share with interested readers why they are committed to vegetarianism. Each article also has article insert interviews with additional musicians who embrace the vegan lifestyle.
I especially liked the compilation album column, Mixtape Movement that lists five benefit recordings from 1987-2012.
Well let me publish this post and go make a Celestial Seasoning’s Red Zinger tea to sip while I read this month’s issue. I have so much to learn about vegan news and music now 😉
