Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has given Liam Gallagher’s new band Beady Eye his rock seal of approval.
Leicester lad Tom has had a private listen to the group’s debut album and reckons it’s going to blow fans away.
Speaking about the disc, which isn’t out until next year, Tom, 29, said of the 39-year-old: “Liam came to my room about three months ago and put it on a little stereo and you know I’m just buzzing for him.
“He’s really done something different from Oasis so I’m really pleased he’s getting out there. His album’s fantastic and its not Oasis any more, it’s Liam’s band.
“I support him all the way with that. I don’t think he cares [what people think], he just wants to make music.”
Speaking to Absolute Radio DJ Ben Jones, 33, the Kasabian rocker says his crew are feeling similarly inspired.
The gang will headline Sunday’s stage at next year’s Isle Of Wight festival and Tom is telling fans to expect the unexpected. He explained: “If people are expecting West Ryder or Underdog they’ve got another think coming because it’s nothing like the last record.
“We’re not the same band any more. We always keep changing. At the beginning of this year we went on tour to Australia and we had a few ideas.
“It all stems from Serge, he plants the seeds and this sort of giant beanstalk starts forming and then we take it in the studio and start to lay down the drums and go from there.”
Tom has promised you won’t see him on I’m A Celebrity, like Madchester legend Shaun Ryder, 48.
He added: “Shaun is amazing, just class to watch, you know.
“He’s a genius, but I could never do that to myself.”
