Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno has slammed British fans who liken the band to their musical predecessors The Stone Roses, Oasis and Primal Scream.
The star believes fans in other countries accept the band for their rock prowess without drawing comparisons with similar groups.
He says, "The foreign fans listen to the music more and don't call us The Stone Roses or anything.
"I think they get us for who we are, especially in France and places like that. There's no baggage like in the UK."
