Thanks to bei for these scans from the July edition of Japanese magazine Crossbeat, featuring Tom ‘n’ Serge…
KASABIAN were chuffed to bits that they got the nod from The Boss.
After the lads’ top show on Saturday headliner BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN stopped them to say, “Good set boys. Good band.”
TOM MEIGHAN wore a jacket once owned by THE SMALL FACES frontman STEVE MARRIOT.
The boys played hits from all three albums, including Shoot The Runner, Club Foot and Where Did All The Love Go?
After watching Bruce, they partied but were back on their bus at 4am off to their next gig.
That’s rock ‘n’ roll…
Kasabian have had an epiphany. Despite selling nearly two million records to date, their latest single Fire reaching number three and being invited to tour with good friends Oasis, the band have only just realised they’re huge.
‘It’s weird, man,’ begins front man Tom Meighan, with puppy-dog enthusiasm.
‘We were doing Jools Holland the other week and we were the biggest band on it.
Tom Meighan loves himself.
The Kasabian frontman congratulates himself every day on how amazing his life has become.
He said: “I wake up every morning and think, ‘Wow, what a f**king great life!’ We’re making music and people give a s**t, you know? I love being Tom Meighan. I am a little bit hyper.”
Another thing which is pleasing Tom is his band’s new album, ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’.
The 28-year-old rocker is so proud of LP he keeps irritating his friends and family by playing it to them.
He explained: “I’ve bored my next door neighbour half to death, and my lady. If people like it half as much as I do, then I’ve won, because I f***ing love it!”

For swashbuckling Leicestershire rockers Kasabian, the call came unforeseen, and the offering was one that they only could not refuse. The group were already gearing themselves up for a busy summertime, with a new album, their headline circuit plus a series of bowl shows with Oasis and the Enemy.
But the opportunity to be the main support act for Bruce Springsteen’s hotly hoped-for appearance on the main stage at Glastonbury was impossible to deny.
