Guess Who Thought Florence Welch was a MAN!?
Neil Young was stunned the first time he met Florence Welch because he thought the Florence + The Machine singer was a guy.
Welch recalls meeting her hero at Young's annual Bridge School Benefit last year and reveals he thought she was a man named Florence.
She tells Rolling Stone: "He said that when he first heard my record, he thought that I was a man with a high voice. He was like, 'I live in the mountains. I don't know much media. I just thought you were a man called Florence'. I was like, 'Hey, that's pretty punk!'"
