Animal-loving rock star Tom Scholz of the band
Boston has received a pat on the head from his friends at people for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Scholz is the recipient of PETA’s Compassionate Action Award for “inspiring others to extend their compassion to all living beings.” He received the award at an event at Lesley University in Cambridge, following a talk by
PETA president Ingrid Newkirk (left, with Scholz). Scholz told the crowd that in order to be successful the animal-rights movement has to be more than a feeling, urging people not to follow but to lead in the effort to stop animal cruelty.
