Serge Pizzorno says he gave up drugs for Veloicraptor!

Remember the story about Kasabian's new album 'Velociraptor!', and how we naturally assumed that Serge Pizzorno had been at the illegal substances while talking about it? Well it turns out that we got it completely wrong: the man himself says that he quit drugs for the new record, which means he must just be a bit mental.

In an interview with Q magazine, the guitarist said that the band used to shovel back all sorts of stuff, fearing that the party would end at some point, and that in the end he just 'got bored' of it That's message for the kids: drugs really aren't all that, right?

'We were absolutely crazy,' he said. 'Because you don't know how long it's gonna last and you don't give a f**k about anything. You do an album and you think this is gonna be it so let's just enjoy it. Tomorrow didn't matter. We lived at 100 miles an hour.

'I just got bored. For me, the most important thing is the art, the music and the things we leave behind. If your music starts to suffer, then it's not worth it.'
