Muse, one of the most explosive bands of the last decade, are a dominant force in British rock, selling out stadiums and music festivals the world over.
Like most musical giants, they come from humble beginnings. Guitarist, pianist and singer Matthew Bellamy and bassist Christopher Wolstenholme joined drummer Dominic Howard’s band Gothic Plague while the three were attending Teignmouth Community College in the early 90s. After changing band names several times, they settled on The Rocket Baby Dolls and won a battle of the bands, complete with Brit style instrument smashing “in protest” of the battle. After this early success, they began to take themselves more seriously and changed the band name to Muse to reflect Bellamy’s perception of having “summoned” the band together like Homer’s apostrophe “Sing to me O Muse…”
Since their official inception in 1994, Muse have had enormous success, having released two EPs, six studio albums, three live albums and garnering major accolades including “Best British Live Act,” five MTV Europe Music Awards, eight NME awards, and five Grammy nominations, of which they won “Best Rock Album” for The Resistance (2009), their 1984-themed concept album. Their musical style has many influences, from classical music to electronica, grunge, blues, jazz, nu-metal, progressive rock, and dubstep. The band melds these styles together seamlessly, made possible by Bellamy’s multi-instrumental prowess and the trio’s laudable songwriting teamwork.
Muse’s live shows have become the stuff of legend. In 2012, the Q Awards named them “Best Act in the World.” According to MuseWIki.org (yes, they have their own dedicated Wiki fan site), Bellamy holds the world record for most guitars smashed, having destroyed 140 axes on the Absolution tour alone! Fans have come to expect Muse to steal the show at any music festival they play, even prompting Jay-Z to comment on their immaculate attention to detail at their headlining show at Coachella in 2010. As with all world-class bands, the cost of seeing a live show continues to increase with their popularity. Save on Muse tickets and join in on the “Hysteria” with ScoreBig.com !
