I can remember seeing sometime either an interview (youtube) or a written article which contained Franz Ferdinand lead singer Alex Kapranos mentioning in detail his love of the Queen rhythm section. For the life of me I can't trace this and need to - can anyone help?

that was wicked, fanks for that!
i fought Kapranos was spot on with what he said about the positive nature of Queen's music. I've always felt that way but never explicitly expressed it in the way he did.

Alex is a fan yes, he "came out" in 2004.

Thanks!!

A friend of mine had already mentioned Alex was into Queen, but I never imagined Queen had directly influenced Franz Ferdinand.

I love the video mix in the end... Great to see Queen on stage with Do You Want To playing xD
