The Leicester band's guitarist and songsmith has revealed he doesn't wear in-ear monitors.

Serge Pizzorno fears he'll go deaf because he still refuses to wear in-ears.

The Kasabian guitarist and songsmith, who performed for The Who frontman's Teenage Cancer Trust charity at London's Royal Albert Hall on Saturday (24 March) told the Daily Star: "It scares me as I do like it loud, like blistering loud."

The Eez-Eh songsmith added: "They have been trying to get me to wear in-ears for years now but I just can't get on with, but I am really worried.

"It's so scary, and I do think about it, I start the gig really quiet but then I get lost in it and by the end it could bring down buildings that's how loud it is."

Serge might just have a point, as when Kasabian performed at the first ever Global Awards, they quite literally smashed it.

In the penultimate performance of the night Serge and co. performed their You're In Love With A Psycho and Fire singles at the star-studded bash, and the the sound broke Lilah Parsons' wine glass clean off its stem!

Serge's admission follows The Who frontman Roger Daltrey's confession that he's "very, very deaf" now.

Addressing the crowd at a solo concert at the Hard Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Daltrey made reference to his his in-ear monitors, saying: "The trouble with these ear things that I wear is that I am very, very deaf. 

"And I advise you all - all you rock-and-roll fans - take your f***ing ear plugs to the gigs. If only we had known when we were young ... we are lip-reading."

Despite the effect performing live and going to shows has had on his hearing, Roger told his fans he still wants to keep playing "for a long time".

He added: "I am lucky to be doing what I do - so thank you."
