The Thanksgiving legend, in short, is this: the Pilgrims and Native Americans came together in 1621 to reconcile their differences and feast with a massive feast (although, as pointed out by Smithsonian Magazine, the cute little story you learned in grade school isn’t exactly historically accurate). At the center of this feast was supposedly a turkey. Hundreds of years later, most of the country follows suit, cutting open a bird and sitting down with friends and family to make a fool of themselves and be thankful for it. The musicians who follow couldn’t care less though, and they won’t be eating turkey on Thanksgiving no matter what.
These rockers and metal musicians won’t be eating turkey this Thanksgiving or the rest of the year. All these people are vegan or vegetarian, so no meat for them. Their reasons are different. Some have a moral objection to eating meat, others believe that it is either unhealthy or just gross to eat the flesh of a previously living thing. They are beyond flesh, into a dimension of their own without flesh.
