  • from [undated]: After having health problems, he was a vegetarian for some time.

  • from Teen Bag Magazine August 1977 : Barry, on the other hand, says that he dislikes junk foods, and doesn't eat meats at all. "Me and my wife Linda gave it up," he said. "We became vegetarians a month ago. I don't mean to be insulting, but the meat in America is treated too much. It's treated in England, too, but not as much. I don't think it's good for you."
