Glasvegas frontman James Allan has chatted about how he used to be "the tour shag" for a year of the band's gigging run.

In an interview with FHM the singer also said he hoped his band's music would encourage fans to "have romance with a stranger."

Lothario Allan said: "Hopefully fans can get a little bit lost in our music. Lose their inhibitions, get a little bit inebriated, have some romance with a stranger. I've been involved in some myself. For about a year I was the tour shag. If you wanted to park your bike or anything. I was your man."



Beyond his sexy admissions the singer went on to say that sometimes the only place he feels comfortable is when he's onstage with Glasvegas. "I get freaked out sometimes and want to be on my own or whatever," he said. "It's never to do with the band or the music. Sometimes I just want to escape it all, but then I get on stage and everything is OK."

Glasvegas are currently in the midst of a UK tour and headline the O2 Academy Bournemouth tonight (May 6) - no official word on whether the frontman is in "tour shag" mode or not any more, though.
