Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno says that his own music is the only thing that gets his son Ennio off to sleep.

Pizzorno says he has to play his band's own albums in the car because his two-year-old son Ennio loves them. He told XFM: "Can you imagine how annoying that is, because I've just been on tour and the last thing I want to hear is any of that... but it gets him off to sleep. It really calms him down."

Pizzorno also recently told NME that he doesn't think it is possible for guitar bands to be the dominant force in music culture anymore. "It's not so much that bands aren't important, but that people don't have the same response. It's hard to dominate culture like it used to be; I don't think it's possible anymore. It's so diluted and there are so many outlets, I don't think it can."

The band recently performed at the Noel Gallagher curated Teenage Cancer Trust concerts. They are set to headline Hard Rock Calling on June 29, with support from The Cribs, Paul Weller, Miles Kane, Klaxons, Tribes and Kodaline.
