Kasabian - Serge Pizzorno having 'best month' of his life

Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno is having the ''best month'' of his life.

The band's guitarist is over the moon after the success of their latest album '48:13' - which has just topped the UK Albums Chart - as well as their upcoming homecoming gig in Leicester and a headline slot at Glastonbury at the end of the month.

Serge gushed: ''This is the best month of my life. The album [going to number one], the Leicester gig, headlining Glastonbury, the World Cup is on ... it's a huge time.

''What we've made, we're really proud. It's our fifth record and to be number one at this stage, it's massive. People keep telling me rock music is dead but I won't believe it.

''I want us to try to help make kids pick up guitars and get out there.''

Serge and his bandmates, Tom Meighan, Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews, are set to play to a sold-out crowd in their hometown of Leicester this weekend and have promised an exciting surprise for the 35,000-strong crowd which will include their friends and family.

The rocker told The Sun newspaper: ''We are planning something huge - I would tell you but I don't want to ruin the surprise. We've got a massive entrance planned.

''The buzz around the city already is amazing. It's dawning on us what we've done in bringing a gig like that to a city that has never really seen anything quite like it.''
