Franz Ferdinand's frontman Alex Kapranos has been rocking for 13 years and has revealed some rules for getting along in the music business. He told Spin that one of the rules are to be courteous. He explained, "I remember going -- years ago -- with a different band to open up at the T in the Park festival. My little sister came along and was 15 at the time. I'm not going to say who the band was, but we were all backstage in a communal area, and she went up and got the signatures of the guitarist, drummer, and bassist."

He continued, "As she was walking up to the singer, who was surrounded by security guards, he just gave a nod to one of the security guards, who picked her up and moved her away. I remember thinking at the time that if I was ever in that situation, I was always going to be courteous. "

  • Alex added, " I can understand why the singer felt claustrophobic, but I can also vividly recall how distraught my sister was. That had a huge impact on me."
