Franz Ferdinand Shock Fans With Punch-Up

FRANZ FERDINAND frontman ALEX KAPRANOS has shocked fans by allegedly brawling with the band's drummer after a sell-out gig in Paris.

The TAKE ME OUT singer, 34, was seen rowing furiously with PAUL THOMPSON at the French capital's Zenith club on 4 November (04), signalling the group's gruelling world tour schedule was beginning to take its toll.

A source tells Scotland's SUNDAY MAIL newspaper, "The pair of them were really ratty. The row had nothing to do with music. They were getting little digs in and it just escalated.

"Alex exploded into a rage and before long the pair of them were trying to hit each other. But nobody was seriously hurt. I mean have you seen them? Alex is no MIKE TYSON."
