Kasabian

Kasabian wouldn't ask Noel Gallagher to join their band because he would "dictate everything".

Former Oasis guitarist Noel recently said he would have loved to join the 'Days are Forgotten' band if they had asked, but singer Tom Meighan isn't sure his personality would fir with the rest of the group.

He said: "Nah, he'd dictate everything too much. Seriously, he would have been f***ing brilliant, but he has his own thing going on now."

Noel is now frontman of solo project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and currently touring the US. He recently admitted he is particularly fussy to tour with, especially when it comes to keeping things clean, saying a stray banana skin "would not last 10 f***ing seconds on my tour bus."

Tom's bandmate, Serge Pizzorno, added while he may not be a good member of Kasabian, they're still good friends with Noel.

He said: "We're food mates, so we could wheel him out no problem."

However, Tom plays down any comparisons between them and Oasis, saying they have the "same spirit," but are very different as bands.

He added to Shortlist magazine: "They were one offs. A phenomenon."
