Kasabian Bassist Chris Edwards started with fellow band members Tom Meighan, Sergio Pizzorno and Christopher Karloff. His father used to teach at SJNCC Leicester. His mother is a keen photographer and sometimes travels with the band and photographs them backstage and on stage too. He recently made an appearance in a Carlsberg advertisement.

Having taken bass up at the relatively late age of 18, Chris Edwards started off getting an education from the likes of The Verve and Oasis, later checking out the way Noel Redding held things together in legendary late ’60s outfit the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
