    FLORENCE WELCH FLOORED BY 'SURREAL LIFE'
    December 13, 2011

    moment.

    We spoke with her backstage at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas shows in L.A.
    about some of those surreal moments, her 2012 plans and why, now that she's
    single, she could play David Bowie in a movie.

    station show. Was it everything you imagined?
    I got to live out my
    11-year-old fantasies – I got to go on stage with Green Day. Billie Joe called
    my name from the stage. Dookie was the first album I ever bought. I

    11-year-old girl dreamed.
