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.
Alright_Computer;540896 said:Yes, that H.A.A.R.P. experiment is bad news. I also agree that Muse would be something else entirely without Matt. It's just not possible. No one in rock today can top his solos.
Alright_Computer;541013 said:Exactly. I suck at singing (No hard vocals for me ), I'm alright at guitar, and good at the piano. But nowhere close on any level to Bellamy. The least I can do is jam along to his songs, if RB would release them already... and not just Hysteria.
TakeABow;541034 said:I'm going to get a guitar shortly, and hopefully after a few months I will be able to play a few Muse riffs. Maybe even a solo or two.
Asphyx1ateD;537948 said:Assassin would be an amazing choice for Rock Band, and especially the Grand Omega Bosses Edit version of it (the b-side to Knights Of Cydonia).However, I think they made a very good choice in Hysteria, as it does have a very good bassline and what I find is the bassist does get stuck with pretty boring lines in a lot of songs.Stockholm Syndrome would also be a good choice, especially drum-wise. The opening Plug In Baby guitar riff would be a beauty to play. Time Is Running Out would also be a great song overall. Bliss, my favourite song of Muse, would also work well.Easily, though, would no doubt be the perfect Muse song for Rock Band. It's only a b-side though (to Starlight) and thus isn't very well known. Its bassline is amazing though and it's very Bliss-like.
No really, I don't know anyone that's heard Muse and not liked them.
