Anybody here that likes Muse? They're my favourite band ever, absolutely brilliant! They're really great lads as well, care about their fans and the Muse fandom is a pretty amazing one too!

They look like proper nerds, but they're great people. If you don't know much about them, you can read more about them here.

I'm going to do a quick introduction of the boys.

(From left to right,)

Chris Wolstenholme (bass): He's a 31 year-old bassist, one of the best in the world. Highly respected and praised, but a very humble and quiet person. Grew up in Rotherham, moved to the small town of Teignmouth when he was about 11 and lived there until April this year when he moved to Dublin. Joined Muse when he was a teen and is a big football fan. He has a Twitter account: @CTWolstenholme He's been with his wife Kelly since he was a teen, they married in 2003 after having three kids. Right now, they are expecting their fifth baby that's due in November. (His other four kids are Alfie-11, Ava-Jo-9, Frankie-7 and Ernie-2.) He has his kids' names as well as his wife's tattooed. He is a recovering alcoholic, and hasn't been drinking since last summer.

Dominic Howard (drums): He's 32 and has been in Muse since he was a teen. He was born in Stockport, moved to Teignmouth in his early teens and now lives in the south of France, but he's planning to move to L.A. for a while. In 2004, after Muse's spectacular performance at Glastonbury, his father died. That was a tough time for him, but he got back on the road after a week or so.

Matthew Bellamy (guitar, piano and vocals): He's 32, and is a very praised musician. He has an amazing voice, ranging from tenor to falsetto. Talks very quickly and is very much interested in conspiracy theories. His father was in a band too, The Tornados. He says he doesn't have a home now, he's been staying in hotels since he split up with his Italian fiancee, with whom he had been for eight years. He's now dating Kate Hudson. In his younger years, he used to steal cars and lived with a drug dealer above a sex shop. That experience had taught him not to use drugs, and he never had, apart from mushrooms.

Songs I recommend to a newbie are:
From the first album Showbiz (1999): Showbiz, Muscle Museum, Sunburn.
Origin of Symmetry (2001): New Born, Plug In Baby, Microcuts, Citizen Erased.
Absolution (2003): Sing for Absolution, Fury, Time is Ronning Out, Hysteria, Blackout.
Black Holes and Revelations (2006): Take a Bow, Map of the Problematique (it's not on the album), Supermassive Black Hole, Assassin, Starlight
The Resistance (2009): Uprising, Unnatural Selection, MK Ultra, Exogenesis Symphony Part 1, 2 and 3, Undisclosed Desires.

I love how their music is something you don't play as background music, it's very expressive and sounds huge even though only three guys play it.

I love Muse, one of my favourite current bands.

They offer something a bit different, for me along with Sigur Ros and Radiohead, their music is something that you can really listen to and become immersed into.

They're tied with Porcupine Tree as my favorite "current" band.

Saw them live last year, and they blew me away. Also have all their albums and DVDs, and made a DVD compiling all their music videos. :)

HUGE Muse fan!! They are one of the few who can pull out mixing different music genres! I saw them live a while back and the live show is really to die for!! Highly recommend to go see 'em if you have the chance :)

I'd hate to toot the prog rock horn, but they "are" classified as a prog rock band. Even the band has admitted it themselves, they write progressive rock.

I'd put them in the same category as Tool and The Mars Volta, for writing intelligent epics that blur different genres. Oh, and Animal Collective as well.

I think I'll always like Radiohead better, but Muse is good.

I just started getting into muse. None of my friends can believe it because they are so different then any of the other music I listen too. But, they are really really good!!! I don't love them yet, but it's coming lol.

Yeah, I got back last night, I left when it was clear the strokes weren't going to sing disco 2000 or common people before running off stage shouting ''stuff you pulp'' I would have liked to have stayed for pulp but we wanted to avoid the rush and get home and have baths ect.
I saw the view, enter shikari, muse, the architects, the blackout, new found glory, some of bring me the horizon, the deftones, warpaint, panic! at the disco, the pigeon detectives, seasick steve, two door cinema club, madness and the strokes. We saw Tim Minchin, Russel Kane and a few others in the alternative stage. You?


Where were you camped?
