LATEST: Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody is suffering two blisters on his vocal chords, his specialist has discovered. The singer was forced to cancel concerts in Washington DC and Atlanta, Georgia last month (MAY06), fearing he had ruined his voice. Lightbody was told in February (06) he had laryngitis and ordered to rest. But touring commitments forced him to ignore medical advice - and the crisis deepened because of the strain. He says, "The doctor found two polyps on my left vocal chord which are caused by over-use and look like little blisters. "The good news is that the doctor seems to think that we caught them early and she is not too worried."
