Muse: Ready For Blast Off

Stephen Dalton, Times, The, 29 July 2006

IN KEEPING with his reputation as Britrock's reigning maestro of overblown melodrama, Matt Bellamy lives in a grand old villa overlooking Lake Como in northern Italy. The Sicilian opera composer, Vincenzo Bellini, was a former resident. The Muse frontman denies that he dons a cape in the dead of night and haunts the building's shadowy depths. However, he is building his studio in a cave beneath the villa. Perfect.
