'Muse: Inside The Muscle Museum' (biography)

Recommended Posts

Got the book as a Christmas pressie for Yeggstry (member) and got to read around 12 pages before it had to be wrapped. Damn! I must go get my own copy ;)

Thankyou for the book, Ben, it was a great biography, because it wasn't a person looking into their lives, you put in little stories that made you see the band as friends rather than an establishment. :happy:

Look out for the follow-up sometime around when they decide to stage 'Devon & Hell: Muse The Musical - An Ice Spectacular!', circa 2020.

 

Coming to an enormodome near you...

That's the project with Rick Wakeman, isn't it?

I truly hope not!

Come on Ben, Rick aint that bad. Apart from losing a lot of his hearing (he says) he can still produce a decent gig. I know that its not "Yes" but...

He did have some bad tracks (imho) but is damn good on the keyboards and good entertainment. Not a patch on Muse but he has got to take it easy after all of his heart trouble.

Wow! Hey Mr Myers, sir!

Bought the book, and what fantabulousness it is!! Had a nightmare finding it though. Couldn't get it in Glasgow, Edinburgh or even London. It's been sold out everywhere!!

 

But congratulations! One day you'll see a book called Muse: Inside The Pink Ego Box, and it'll be written by me! Yay!

Will you buy it?

You might say that but I couldn't possibly comment....

 

The Mars Volta do a nice bit of prog.

And thankfully no wizards are involved.

Ah, fair enough. Growing up is an extremely very over-rated concept anyway.

So I'm told.

I've owned this book for a while now and I still haven't read it.

 

Not a book lover, but I must get round to checking it out one day. :)

Hey Ben

 

Your book is a fascinating read. Very good!

 

Still hate you for meeting them so many times though :p

 

Don't we all, my friend? Don't we all...?

Great book, read it twice now. I read it in June ish last year and then re-read it on my trip to London to see them in December! Everytime I read it it makes me desperate to listen to them, so there must be something good about it. :)

But I've heard there's a few errors in it, e.g. typos etc...

 

There do seem to be a few. I am re-reading it at the moment and have noticed the odd mistake. Mistakes aside its a really really good book.

Okay-it looks like people enjoyed the book.

Found it on Amazon UK, but it will cost me around $30 to buy and ship it.

Is it worth it ???

seems like it.

Also, if anyone wants to sell theirs to me ??? :unsure:

feedback is appreciated. :)
