Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand welcomed their first female member this week (4Jun07) when they invited a fan to perform with them on stage.
Audience member Liz O'Callaghan was enjoying the group's set at Glasgow, Scotland's Grand Old Opry on Monday when she was picked out from the audience by frontman Alex Kapranos to guest star on the drum kit for track Outsiders.
She says, "I had made a sign which said 'Please let me play on Outsiders for you.'
"Alex came down and said it would be fine for me to join them for the song. Then he told the audience I would be getting up on the stage and invited me up."
