Matt Bellamy: 'George Clooney is a chilled guy'

Muse's Matt Bellamy has said that his former neighbour George Clooney is a 'chilled guy'.

The singer and guitarist used to be a resident of Lake Como in Italy, where Hollywood actor Clooney also has a property. Asked by NME if the pair ever spent time together, Bellamy revealed that they did not but that he had spotted the A-List star a number of times. Asked if he ever borrowed a pint of milk from his neighbour, Bellamy said: "No, he never", but he added: "I saw him go past on his motorbike a number of times."

Bellamy says: I've met him since then but I never met him in Como. Nice guy, very mellow, very chilled out. He likes to ride around on his Harley.Muse kicked off their European tour in Montpellier, France this week, revealing their spectacular new live show as well as playing rare songs from their early years.

The band, who released new album 'The 2nd Law' earlier this year, performed at the Park & Suites Arena in Montpellier and opened their set with new song 'Unsustainable'. Other new songs played included the singles 'Madness' and 'Survival' as well as album tracks 'Supremacy', 'Panic Station' and 'Animals'. However, it was the band playing 'Falling Down', taken from debut album 'Showbiz', that impressed fans the most, as the track has not been seen on a setlist since 2000.

I remember really liking that first album. And seeing Coldplay open for them when they toured it a billion years ago.

oh how they have fallen
iheartfamke 19th-Oct-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
Fallen? This album is their highest charting US album. Try again, sis.
oblika_farika 19th-Oct-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
who cares about album sales? album sales don't make music good or bad.

When you said fallen, it implied fame to me, not necessarily their quality of music. Oop at ur inability to be specific tbh.

you're awfully defensive about something that wasn't aimed at you

Lake Como residents tell tourists that Clooney is gay. LOL.

Ugh, they only released one TX date and I am not here for traveling to Houston.

I prefer their new album to The Resistance but that's not saying much (I only liked Undisclosed Desires from the latter, I like 4/5 songs from The 2nd Law). But I only listened to it for about a week and then I got over it. I remember when I used to listen to their albums obssessively for, like, 3 months straight. And it's not an age thing, I'm still jamming to the new Smashing Pumpkins album and it's been out since June.

idk idk I guess I'm one of ~those~ fans (a fan since 2001, getting more and more bummed out with each release)

I got tired of their new album real quickly :/

also sad that they didn't announce a date in the dallas/fw area.
