I just attended a Florence & The Machine Concert and to say the least I think I experienced seeing the modern day Grace. It's incredible and moving <3
Florence is a musical genius just like Gracie- lyrics and voice are simply perfection for them both.
Quick comparison with youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV2UcdzBvok&feature=player_embedded#at=69http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WANNqr-vcx0&feature=player_embedded#at=135
"The young Florence would dance on top of it with her father to Love, The Incredible String Band, The Smiths and The Velvet Underground.
"But my mum only listened to Tom Jones and The Monkees," she says. "And collectively that's what I sound like - Tom Jones, The Monkees, The Velvet Underground and The Incredible String Band."
Asked to name her musical heroes, there is a long pause before she picks Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane because she named her daughter god as a joke. "http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7813609.stm
