Tom Meighan ''wouldn't be in a band'' if it weren't for Michael Jackson.

The Kasabian frontman was ''sent crazy'' by the late singer's classic 1982 album 'Thriller' and used to spend hours trying to impersonate the King of Pop when he was a child.

He told NME magazine: ''Nothing's come near since ['Thriller']. It was my childhood. It sent me crazy.

''I'd be in front of the TV for hours trying to mimic him and them dance moves. I don't think I'd be on stage or singing in a band it if wasn't for Michael Jackson and that album. He's a big part of me, of my childhood.

''Don't get me wrong, from what I hear the guy was a f***ing monster, but in his day he could shred anyone. Can't take that away from him.''

Tom's bandmate Serge Pizzorno recently revealed the group's forthcoming new album, '48:13', had been inspired by their diverse range of influences.

He said: ''We kept everything direct musically and tried to combine electronical, hip hop and late 60s rock and roll.

''It feels like we've been training 10 years for this.''

I wouldn't want money from my rapist (and I was raped as a kid) I wanted Justice.both these liars well all of them all 4 wanted money and Jordan Chandler could have still testified in 1993 and in 2005 but both times he threatened to sue anyone who would make him testify. learn not to rely on liars and money grubbers and tabloids.
