Message board Q&A with Muse!

 

Do you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask Muse, but haven’t had the opportunity to do so? Well, now is your chance! Muse would like to answer questions from you-- the members of the Official Muse Message Board! We will be collecting questions here and submitting them to the band. You may send general inquiries about the Q&A itself to the moderators or to the Q&A Discussion Thread. Now for some rules and guidelines before the fun stuff:

 

  • To ensure we are able to review each and every submission, please post only questions directed to the band in this thread. Discussion and off topic posts will be deleted without warning.
  • Feel free to discuss the Q&A, questions that you enjoy, and any other inquiries in the Q&A Discussion Thread. Q&A discussion will also help us narrow down entries that everyone would like answered and that will rank that entry higher in our submission list.
  • Usernames will not be included when the entries are given to the band.
  • All questions will be moderated and possibly edited.
  • One question per thread post (multi-part questions are acceptable) and a maximum of two questions per user.
  • Please do not post duplicates. Read what others have posted and avoid similar entries. Duplicate entries will be condensed and/or deleted. Take your time to develop a good one!
  • If you do repost a duplicate question after yours was deleted, a warning/infraction may result.
  • If your post gets deleted, you may submit another with a different topic.
  • Do not ask when Muse will be visiting your country/city/town/house. They will get there when they do.
  • Keep it clean and classy. Rude and abrasive questions, inquiries about the band member’s personal and romantic lives, marriage proposals, or anything Pornogenic Thread-ish will be deleted.
  • Please don't be too disappointed if your question goes unanswered! It is highly unlikely that the band will be able to post an answer to each and every question.

 

Submissions will be accepted until February 13th. Have fun!

Have they considered collaborating with any other artist before, or have they ever been approached by another artist wishing to collaborate?

When writing new music for an album, do you ever think about exploring specific types of genres, or do you let the creative process take you wherever it takes you?

Which are your top 3 favorite bands? Which ones inspired you when you were younger? Are there any ones you used to love but now you hate? :D:p

When you pull out an older song to perform on tour, like Sunburn from the 2nd Law tour, or Bliss from the current tour (or Citizen Erased! Thank you for that in Dallas!), do you have sheet music to refresh your memories? If not, how do you get a song like that ready for the stage?

(For Matt) What's your favorite Manson guitar out of the ones you've played and what's the one you've had the most fun with?

(For the band) Are there any possibilities that you guys play any of the more "obscure" Showbiz tracks (eg. Escape and Showbiz) at any time in one of your next gigs?

Animals is written with 5 beats per measure as far as I can tell. What were your thoughts going into that? Was it deliberate, or did the beat pattern just lend itself to being written that way? SO CURIOUS. :D

I recently brought the tour flag around North America. What a great experience as I got to meet hundreds of fans as they signed it. Many fans asked me, and I'm curious too, what do you do with the flag now that you have it? Is there a big store room full of the objects and gifts fans have given you?

There's been much recent buzz about what fans call the 'US Tour Syndrome'. Setlists here tend to be notably shorter and more centered around singles that charted, with a de-emphasis on fan-favorite, deep cuts from pre-2009 albums. Do you have any plans to challenge this perception?

#1 Any plans to do a big venue + small venue tour in order to play to both of your audiences (the pop crowd and the hardcore rock crowds) in the United States?

You've claimed you're going to make a lot of experimentations again with the next album, so... Have you ever considered, by chance, of heading towards a "spacier" sound, like Hyper Chondriac Music?

#2 A lot of us were disheartened to see how VIP holders got early access to the floor since we had initially thought it meant access to the museum and bar areas. This 'pay to win' aspect did not seem well received, and particularly disadvantaged attendees with the time to spare to queue but also without the means for this exclusive VIP perk, especially for hardcore fans doing multiple shows. Will this be considered on future tours within the United States? Could be quite problematic given a more traditional stage design

Why are disabled fans treated so badly by you? Unable to use pre sales ,having to ask for carer tickets (they aren't automatic) people with some disabilities like myself can't attend gigs alone, a derisory number of wheelchair spaces available which are inevitably at the back of the venue.Explain.

Any chance we'll be able to see your best song, Uno, make some appearances the tour? The entire community loved seeing that one again last summer, it worked perfectly in the setlists!

 

Speaking of setlists, any chance you still have any from the Showbiz era and before that? Many Showbiz era setlists have become next-to impossible to find, if any are still in your possession from the early years, is there any way you could have someone add them to the Muse.mu gig history to make it more complete? It would benefit the community tremendously to have some 1998/1999 setlists surface.

 

Thank you for being the best band to ever live!

How do you determine what songs become singles?

Do you write some songs with the intention of them becoming singles or do you decide after they'd been written?

- For Matt a Jake The Dog plushie.

- For Chris sweet treats

 

Please tell me if you got them and what you thought of them, it's really important to me! My name is Victoria :happy:

This one is for Matt ;)

What is your favourite classical piece to play on the piano? Are you capable of explaining how you feel when you listen to this type of music or is it too difficult to put in words?

(By the way, I saw you guys play at NOS Alive in Lisbon last year, you were absolutely incredible!!!)
