I went to see Silverchair the other night in Sydney, and noticed a table of Peta leaflets on my way in. I asked the manager of the venue why they were there and was told that it was at the request of the band.<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone know if all 3 members of Silverchair are Vegans? I noticed that the lead singer Daniel Johns had some animal welfare stickers on his guitar.

The lead singer was an anoretic.<br><br>
Veganism/vegetarianism is very popular in people who are getting over eating disorders. It's a way to still have that 'control' their eating habits.. but remain healthy while doing it.<br><br>
I guess what I'm getting at is that, although I don't know it for a fact, I wouldn't doubt that it's truthful.

Daniel Johns was vegan long before his anorexia. Just because someone has a mental disorder and also happens to be a vegan doesn't necessarily mean the two are related. That misconception pisses me off to no end. Don't jump to conclusions.

I'm not jumping to conclusions. It's a well known fact. My eating disorder (or lack-there-of; I'm supposed to be 'recovered')wasn't the reason behind my becoming vegan, but it definetly played a role in that I knew being vegan would help me to greater restrict my food intake.<br><br>
Again, my eating disorder was NOT my reason behind being vegan. I AM still doing it for the animals. I don't wear wool, leather, etc. BECAUSE they are derived from animals. I just don't want to be misunderstood.

Excellent, off to HMV to buy a copy of Diorama in that case.

And <i>my</i> eating disorder and my veganism are not related at all. I was vegan for 2 years before beginning any anorexic tendencies.

I know I am lucky, they kicked the proverbial ass on stage. The first set was a lot of the new, slower stuff from Diorama. But after the interval they made your ears bleed!<br><br><br><br>
I thought Daniel Johns was suffering from arthritis, not anorexia.

Thank you. Although you wouldn't have known it from his on-stage performance. He could do without wiggling his butt so much though, even though the girls seemed to like it.
