Tom Meighan's lucky life

Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan is lucky to be alive.

The singer is amazed he has managed to survive all the hard partying he's done over the years without going to rehab.

He said: "Since Kasabian came out, most of it has just been a blackout for me. Thank God I'm still here. I haven't gone to rehab, which is the genius thing. When we were on tour with Oasis, when we did America, we had some great nights with Liam and Noel Gallagher. That was an amazing time - and meeting Lars from Metallica. I got off stage in San Francisco and he was in our f**king tour bus - and that's the b******s."

Meighan also revealed he is obsessed with Pot Noodles, and always takes the British instant savoury snack with him on tour.

He added to Loaded magazine: "We take Pot Noodles with us. Everyone loves chicken and mushroom, but beef and tomato is pretty cool. And I tell you what's really underestimated - chow mein. Great flavour."
