Posted in Chris Karloff, News, Tom Meighan on July 21, 2006 by Jennijops

KASABIAN frontman TOM MEIGHAN is “gutted” guitarist/keyboardist CHRIS KARLOFF has left the British band.

Earlier this week (begs17JUL06), it was announced Karloff had quit Kasabian due to “artistic differences” but Meighan insists the split is amicable. But the singer refuses to confirm if touring replacement JAY MEHLER will become a full-time member of the band. He says, “I am gutted. It’s sad after you’ve been with someone all those years and he’s a great person and friend and it’s just one of those things. “We wish him the best, he’s a wonderful musician. “Jay’s just coming in to do the live parts and we’ll make that decision when the time comes, but he’s wonderful and has a lot of colour to him.”
