TMV is absolutely my favorite band. Apparently Omar cracked and started eating eggs because "at the end of the day I also didn’t take care of myself and I didn’t take supplements because I didn’t want to take pills, blah blah blah." He was a raw vegan for a while there. I don't know if he ever returned so he might be better classified as a vegetarian.
