Kasabian’s Tom Meighan: ‘We’d never recruit Noel Gallagher’

Singer says ex-Oasis chief would 'dictate everything' if he was a full time member

Kasabian have said they would never ask Noel Gallagher to join their band as a full time member.

The ex-Oasis chief recently revealed that he would have loved to join the Leicester group if they had asked him.

But frontman Tom Meighan has now said that would never happen because he would have too much of a say in the band.


When asked about the possibility of Noel joining them he told Shortlist:

No, he’d dictate everything too much. Seriously, he would have been fucking brilliant, but he has his own thing going on now.

Noel has joined Kasabian onstage as a backing guitarist on a number of occasions in the past.

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno said that although they would never recruit him full time, he would allow him to team up with them again onstage in the future. “We’re good mates, so we could wheel him out no problem,” he added.

Kasabian are set to kick off their 13-date UK arena tour in Brighton on Monday (November 28).
