Keane frontman Tom Chaplin avoids the temptation of groupies by thinking about his girlfriend back home in England.

The British rocker finds touring hard at times, and his downbeat temperament while on the road isn't helped by beauties throwing themselves at him.

He says, "There is always temptation, and I'm sure we could be sh*gging around all the time if we wanted to, but it wouldn't be very satisfying.

"I wouldn't jeopardise what I've got with my girlfriend for anything.

"Sometimes you just feel you need to be at home. This is one of those times, only I'm 5,000 kilometres away. It's difficult."
