The Mirror reports that at 59-years-old, Sir Paul feels up to staging his first concert tour since 1993 during which time he spent 10 months on the road. Sir Paul credits his high energy to the strict vegetarian diet he has followed for the last 25 years:
"The benefit of a vegetarian diet is that it gives you more energy -- that's certainly the case with me, seeing as I'm now looking at going out on tour again at an age when most people are thinking of retiring. I feel great on a vegetarian diet and I've got more drive because of it. Recently I recorded 18 songs for my new album in just two weeks.... A lot of men think that meat equals macho, but I don't agree. I agree with what Linda said -- that the most macho thing a man can be is to be kind. It's difficult for some guys to be kind, but women will tell you that kindness is the true proof of your machismo."
