Keith Urban Feared He'd Return With Leo Sayer's Voice


Keith Urban Leo Sayer

Country singer Keith Urban feared he'd sound like high-pitched pop star Leo Sayer when he returned to performing after vocal surgery last year (11).

The Aussie hunk spent three weeks not uttering a murmur after the operation to remove a nodule and a polyp from his throat and he had weird dreams about how his voice would sound when he was able to hit the stage and the studio again.

He says, "I had this operated on and you have to do three weeks (of) no talking, no uttering a sound - you can't cry, you can't sneeze, you can't cough, you can't clear your throat.

"I had a dream one night, it was the strangest thing. I was like, 'What's my voice gonna sound like when I hear it for the first time again...?' I woke up the next morning and I called the doctor and I go, 'Would it be possible that I can sing in my sleep?' - because you can't, you're not allowed to... I was terrified that I was singing in my sleep, Leo Sayer songs."

The singer topped the charts in the 1970s with hits including the Grammy-winning track You Make Me Feel Like Dancing and When I Need You.


And he has heaped praise on the people of Australia, where he moved in 2005, for their ongoing support of his career.


Speaking at a special ceremony marking the national holiday Australia Day, the star said: "I'm 60 and I feel like a 20-year-old at the moment in my life here, because everyone is so much encouraging me to keep working and everything.


"In the old country, England, it would have been, 'Sorry - you're from the '70s and that's it.'"

Outrageous British rocker DONNY TOURETTE has fallen in love with a British Royal after noting her resemblance to a former girlfriend.
The Towers Of London frontman is desperate to seduce 18-year-old PRINCESS BEATRICE, daughter of Sarah Ferguson and PRINCE ANDREW.
As well as her royal lineage, Tourette confesses her uncanny likeness to ex-partner Peaches Geldof, whose dad is Irish rocker BOB, is part of the attraction.
He says, "I'm mad for her. She's definitely hot. She sort of reminds me of Peaches.
"All I need is two minutes to turn on the Tourette charm and she'd be mine.
"I went to (London club) Mahiki this week because I heard Prince Harry was there. I thought he could put a good word in for me.
"It's not just Beatrice's looks I'm attracted to - she's fifth in line for the throne. I could handle that."
Tourette boasts to have slept with over 300 women, including veteran pop star Leo Sayer's wife.

Carole Booted Out Of Bb

Big Brother A-Team Leo Sayer One Of Us

Carole has become the second person to be evicted from the Big Brother house, although three have walked out.

The tabloid reporter was calm and reasoned during the eviction, saying, "We knew One Of Us had to go." And with 77.4 per cent of the public votes, it was Carole that was shown the door.

Although Carole was originally up against crooner Leo Sayer and the A-Team's Dirk "the faceman" Benedict, Leo walked out of the house voluntarily after he ran out of clean underpants. He told a bemused Davina, "It was the underpants... I'd run out and I didn't want to wash my smalls in front of everybody else."

Carole's eviction may well act as a warning not to mess with Big Brother. Carole found herself up for eviction after discussing nominations with actress Cleo Rocos, a big no-no for the housemates!
