Elbow don't think enough men tell their friends they love them.

Frontman Guy Garvey was surprised when he was told the line "love you mate," in his song 'Friend Of Ours' - about a close pal of the band, Bryan Glancy, who died unexpectedly in 2006 - was an "unusual" thing for one man to say to another.

He explained to Q Magazine: "Someone said that to write that was unusual. I hadn't realised that. It was so natural. It seemed the only thing to say. You do love your mates though, don't you?

"I tell my friends at the end of every phone call. He used to, Bryan used to. So I know that's the last thing he said to me."

'Neat Little Rows' singer Guy's bandmates - Mark Potter, Craig Potter, Richard Jupp and Pete Turner - agree with him, with Craig adding: "Everyone would be heartbroken if they never saw their friends again. It's just that most blokes never speak about that sort of thing."

Drummer Richard continued: "Yeah, it's all b******s and meat pies."

Elbow's new album, 'Build A Rocket Boys!' is released on March 7.
