How he came up with the XY midi pad on his black Manson guitar that controls the Kaoss pad blows I will never know. The man is more revolutionary that Johnny Greenwood, which is the highest complement.... Those 2, along with The Edge, are probably the most amazing effects users in rock music...
TakeABow;540495 said:I am willing to drive about 500 miles to see them, and there still aren't that many shows. I know the feeling.I saw them twice last year though, once with MCR (ick) and again at Lollapalooza.Edit: Wow! I have 118 out of 768 posts in this thread. And I didn't start posting in here until at least a month after it got started. I guess I talk too much.
Alright_Computer;540579 said:The test of a true Muse fan: whoever gets the most posts requesting for them to be in Rock Band.If I had the budget, I would easily go to England just to see Muse. But I really don't, unfortunately. Also, I'm a believer that touring with MCR was one of the biggest mistakes in Muse's lives.
In an interview:Do you have any hopes of breaking America? Matt: "It'd be nice, yeah. But if you want to break America, you do have to bend over, pull down your pants and let radio stations f**k you up the arse. If there's any way of avoiding that, I'll go for it. But I think we'll go live there for six months and see what happens."
Alright_Computer;540605 said:Wow. I bet there were a lot of teen girls with too much eyeliner at the show. And if I were Matt, I wouldn't have covered it with a laugh. Really. That may have been why they agreed to do it, they actually wanted MCR fans to hear good music. Not the crap their favorite band usually makes.
TakeABow;540634 said:I felt out of place wearing an Interpol t-shirt and non-ripped jeans and indoor soccer shoes around all the pre-ripped / girlpants, eyeliner and tight-jacket, emover haircut sporting crowd that filled most of the place. Matt definatly had more fun at Lollapalooza than he did playing right before MCR.Warner is pushing Muse hard over here now. And they were really fantastic about fixing the Special Edition HAARP DVD situation. I expected to just be screwed with a region 2 DVD, but three days later I got the replacement.
supersonic1414;540659 said:What DVD problem did you run into?
TakeABow;540668 said:The special edition boxes (limited to 1000 copies in the US) were all region 2 (UK, Japan, France, Germany) coded, so US DVD players couldn't play them. They had the replacement DVD with the correct region code in the mail before I called to ask what was up.
Alright_Computer;540697 said:That's nice of them. I guess they just wanted to spread the HAARP around.I wonder how many special edition boxes there were in the UK, since they're a lot more popular there.
TakeABow;540716 said:Warner wants Muse fans to be happy, and they pushed HAARP into lots of record stores. I expect that the next time Muse tours over here, it will be thier own tour, with lots of other bands clamoring to open for them. *Imagines an Interpol/Muse Tour* If only...I bet Helium3 put out plenty of the special HAARP DVD over there. Probably a limited time deal instead of a limited number.
Alright_Computer;540726 said:That tour would be awesome. I would go.
Alright_Computer;540761 said:That would be really fun to do. Especially if they had different setlists/props onstage for each show, which I bet they do. I'm praying for a big US tour now...
Alright_Computer;540776 said:Yeah, HAARP was way different than the one I saw. (I saw the Chicago show back in July '08) Maybe that was because back then, the songs were newer. I mean, BH&R was released only 2 weeks earlier. Oh well.
Alright_Computer;540797 said:Oops... I got this year mixed up with 2 years ago... I'll edit it now.I got the Back to the Future reference
TakeABow;540803 said:You gotta respect the flux capacitor. I still believe that thier July '08 show "was" amazing.
Alright_Computer;540813 said:Yeah, it really sucked that Matt wasn't in it, though :eek:Oh, I wasn't supposed to say that part yet...
Alec;540830 said:I love Muse!
Alright_Computer;540834 said:Well, you could always change the future... maybe having a tuna salad sandwich instead of an egg salad sandwich prevents Matt from leaving the band.
TakeABow;540843 said:I will second-guess everything I do now...
Alright_Computer;540850 said:I'm never eating egg salad again. And that's not because I don't like it. Even though I don't.
