Kasabian's Tom Meighan

Kasabian have put their hard partying days behind them and now love to play Backgammon on their tour bus

Kasabian have taken up playing Backgammon on their tour bus.

The 'Days are Forgotten' group have largely put their hard partying days behind them and have taken up a number of much more civilised pursuits to pass the time as they travel between venues on their current US tour.

Singer Tom Meighan told Q magazine: "We're pretty civilised these days. [Guitarist] Serge [Pizzorno] fills his time playing backgammon with Ben [Kealey], the keyboardist.

"It's a bit like a Working Men's Club. Perhaps I should take up dominoes."

However, Tom did admit he keeps a bottle of Sailor Jerry rum with him on the tour bus but said the whole band still panic if they lose the TV remote on the bus.

He added: "The remote control is the most important thing on the bus. If that gets lost everyone s**ts it. I just watched 'Fargo' this morning - bit of an intense film for that time of day. We've got satellite TV on the bus so we can watch football on the Fox Soccer channel."


The lairy indie combo have headlined T in the Park and Glastonbury with their tried-and-tested piledriving electro-rock anthems.
