Kasabian guitarist Sergio Pizzorno admits he was "s***ting himself" when he recorded a track with Rosario Dawson for the band's new album
Kasabian star Sergio Pizzorno was "s***ting himself" when he recorded a track with Rosario Dawson.
The guitarist admits the actress - who he refers to as "the prostitute from 'Sin City' " - was not his first choice for a collaboration on the band's upcoming track 'West Rider/Silver Bullet' but was pleasantly surprised by her singing talents when they met in New York.
He said: "I didn't even know if she could sing. The obvious thing would be to get an English girl and have that English rose kind of vibe. Like Keira Knightley, that kind of thing.
"I thought Rosario would be interesting, but she's the prostitute from 'Sin City'. I was s***ting myself in the studio, but she sounded incredible."
Sergio also said working with the 'Seven Pounds' star left him star struck with her stories of glitzy Hollywood parties.
He added: "She later told me that she went to Quentin Tarantino's birthday and played it for him and he loved it.
"That's when you sit at home in Leicester tucking into you beans on toast going, 'F***ing hell man, what's going on?' "
