Rockers Franz Ferdinand owe their chart success to their love of food, because founder members Alex Kapranos and BOB HARDY met while working in a kitchen. Frontman Kapranos worked as a chef in a Scottish restaurant several years ago, and would always discuss his plan to form a band with bassist Hardy during breaks. The TAKE ME OUT singer says, "I had some of the best moments of my life, just having a laugh in the kitchen. "It was really hard work but during prep time Bob and I would listen to music and I think in a way that's where a lot of the ideas for Franz Ferdinand were formed."
