Serge Pizzorno thinks the "rock 'n' roll way" has been forgotten.
The Kasabian guitarist admits he is concerned that the younger generation are growing up without the knowledge of rebellious and creative artists and authors such as writer Ernest Hemingway, poet Charles Bukowski and abstract painter Pablo Picasso.
He told Q magazine: "Kids don't know about the rock'n'roll way anymore. I don't mean just the music but Hemingway, Bukowski, Picasso.people who saw the world differently."
Serge admits he is inspired by creative people who are able to live a "wild life" but also acknowledges he needs to work hard to be successful.
He added: "Bukowski, Keith Richards, Hemingway.those are artists that I respect. Those are the people you have to live up to if you can. They embraced a wild life so that they could experience something special. I am fascinated by that and I always will be. But I've got quite a strong work ethic as well. You can't miss a show. You can't record a lot of st music and it down to 'being an artist and living the life.' You've got to get the job done or you've failed."
Echoing some of his influences, Serge admits to turning to potent spirit absinthe for inspiration.
He added: "About a year ago when we were making the last album. I was drinking a lot of it then. It's f*ing poison, man. It drives you mad."Posted on 2 Jul 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
