Muse guitarist and lead singer Matt Bellamy is one of the last of a dying breed of bona fide rock stars. Bellamy’s credentials include selling out London’s Wembley Arena, smashing a world record 140 guitars during Muse’s Absolution tour, and even getting engaged to Penny Lane (Almost Famous actress Kate Hudson). Pretty rock 'n' roll.
Muse are set to begin work on the follow-up to 2009's The Resistance this fall, at least according to bassist Chris Wolstenholme. In a recent interview with Radio 1, the Muse bassist said that the band would be hitting the studio after playing the Reading and Leeds festivals.
