Kasabian's Tom Meighan admits to suffering a "meltdown" on tour

Rocker Tom Meighan has revealed that he went through a troubled time before the birth of his daughter.

Shortly before his baby arrived, Kasabian toured the USA and Meighan explained that he found himself feeling very emotional and "just lost it" while on the road:

"I had a meltdown. Not a complete breakdown but I just lost it through the realisation of what was going on in my life. I went a bit mad for a couple of days. I panicked. I've never had that before. And I was at breaking point. But the band were there for me and crying helps."

He went on to confess that being away from home during such a personal time was especially tough, but looking back on it now it seems well worth it:

"I cry a lot and I'm not ashamed to say that but America was hard. It was nine weeks of non-stop touring. But we're doing all right there now, so it was worth it and we're going back there in the autumn."

Back in May, Kasabian branded One Direction "five little d*cks" for their impressive and quick success in the U.S. and said it wasn't fair because they've endured long tours stateside without making the same impact.
