Franz Ferdinand Frontman Shot By Gavrilo Princip Bassist

Quote:
GLASGOW, SCOTLAND—Lead singer and guitarist for pop band Franz Ferdinand, Alexander Kapranos, is in critical condition today after being shot by a man identified as the bassist for rock group Gavrilo Princip. "We ask fans to cooperate with Interpol to find the assailant, and call upon British Sea Power, Snow Patrol, and The Postal Service for help," drummer Paul Thompson told music magazine NME Monday. "The suspect had links to The Decemberists and The Libertines, and we are following up on all leads." It is unclear whether the shooting was linked to The Polyphonic Spree's invasion of Belgium earlier this week.

Alright I mean, don't get me wrong, I get the joke. But at first glance reading "Alexander Kapranos is in critical condition today after being shot" I got worried since I'm seeing them a week from Friday.

But glad to see it was just The Onion up to its old tricks. Anyone ever listen to The Onion podcast? It's great stuff.

Many thanks
