Florence Welch on vocal injury: 'I felt something snap in my throat'
Flame-haired Florence Welch has opened up about the vocal injury that forced her to pull out of two major summer commitments.
Earlier this month, Florence + the Machine had to cancel their scheduled performance at Spain's Benicassim Festival and also bowed out of appearing at the Optimus Festival in Portugal, and Welch revealed to US Weekly that she 'felt something snap' in her throat so knew it was serious:
"I actually felt something go pop or snap, or whatever. Whatever it is, it was very frightening. I had to really adjust because it happened in the middle of a show."
Welch also confessed that following doctor's orders to restore her voice was a challenge because she had to quit caffeine: "No tea, no coffee! That was the hardest part. I had been on such a caffeine kick up until then."
"I was fully back on five diet cokes a day and two coffees in the morning. I was really twitching my way through life, but I was completely loving it. And I had to cut it out completely. And I managed to get properly hurt again and had to cut everything out, so I'm back on the herbal tea."
