Transcript of the Lyme documentary scene
It was nearing the end of the tour, very much at the end of the tour, I was out horseback riding, and I was bit by a tick.
The tick was infected with Lyme's disease.
I did get Lyme's disease.
I mean, my symptoms were quite scary because before I was diagnosed, I was on stage very dizzy, I was losing my balance.
I was afraid I was going to fall off the stage, and the stage is quite high.
So I was staying far from the edge, I was adjusting what I was doing.
I was having these very, very, millisecond blackouts, but regularly, like, every...
Every minute, or every 30 seconds.
I had everything that was on the Lyme's disease checklist to follow up on medically.
I... I was fine.
But my voice was never the same again.
It just... went into this strange flanging, you know, lack of control of... of the airflow.
I... I didn't understand it.
But I thought I'd lost my voice forever, I thought that was it.
I would never, ever sing again.
