Franz Ferdinand singer Alex Kapranos got in a spot of trouble in Russia when authorities there thought he was a spy. The Russians were looking for a spy named Alex Huntley (Kapranos' real name is also Alex Huntley). He was only let go when authorities figured out he was 13 years younger than the Alex they were after. Still, when you name your band after an assassinated Archduke whose death started World War I you should probably expect this thing.
