The 2009 Friday night headliner, Paul McCartney is a strong animal activist in support of the organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. He and his late wife, Linda, reportedly became vegetarians after they happened to see lambs in a field while eating a meal consisting of lamb. Another participant in the PETA veggie testimonial campaign, McCartney also credits the 1942 Disney film, Bambi, as an early inspiration to take part in animal rights activism.
