Young Forgets His Lines

British pop star WILL YOUNG promises fans they'll never catch him lip-synching at gigs - because his memory is so bad he'd forget what lines to mime.
The Light My Fire hitmaker insists he's so forgetful, his concerts often turn into improvisation sessions.
Young explains, "I'm quite bad with words. I can't mime because I forget the lyrics and I start making them up. I have a problem singing first lines of songs and that's purely nerves. I've had to stop a couple times because I forgot my lyrics. I had to say sorry and start again.
"Normally, the words of the songs you know well are ingrained within you, and even though your conscious is saying 'What's next?', you suddenly just remember them. You can't panic, you have to get on with it. So much of it is in the mind - it's funny really."
