10 Amazing Things You Didn't Know About Matt Bellamy
10. He Loves Monty Python
If Muse can seem a little bit ridiculous at times, it's unlikely that frontman Matt Bellamy goes unaware. In a 2012 interview with NME, Matt acknowledged how eccentric the band can be.
"We dont care if people dont necessarily take songs like that 100 per cent seriously. Were not afraid of our eccentricities, were not afraid of going into almost Monty Python rock. But its like opera. If you put a piece of opera on, its ridiculous unless youve listened to the whole thing and just go there with it."
Turns out Matt is a massive fan of the British comedy troupe Monty Python (most famous for Monty Python And The Holy Grail and Monty Python's Life Of Brian) admiring their satirization through absurdity. Perhaps that makes Muse's overtly political shenanigans a bit easier to understand?
"Essentially, we approach music the same way Monty Python did comedy."
