Tom Meighan has recalled the time he ran over his dad before he got his driving license. 

As reported by NME,  the Kasabian frontman speaks about the accident in the latest issue of Q Magazine, which left his father hospitalised in 2014.

“Do you know what, he was quite calm about it," said the Club Foot singer. "He called me a dickhead and that was it."

He added: “Afterwards I went, ‘Dad, I’m sorry’. He just said ‘son, you’re a fucking dickhead’.”

Guitarist and songsmith Serge Pizzorno chimed in: “Obviously at the time it was horrendous, but it’s not until you get asked a question about it that you realise what a funny story it is."

Back in 2014, Tom Meighan told The Mirror the "freak accident" was "the worst day of (his) life". 

He told the outlet: “I can drive but it was in an automatic car. It was too fast. It was a real shock at the time… We have laughed about it now and that’s all you can do. I’m very close to my dad. He’s a very amazing person to have around, so that happening was awful.”

Kasabian are set to headline Benicassim this Sunday (16 July), before playing Reading & Leeds This Year.

To celebrate their headline slot at the twin festivals, the Underdog outfit played an intimate acoustic gig at St. Laurence's Church in Reading last month.
