Muse are an English alternative rock band that formed in Teignmouth,

Devon, England in 1994. Since their inception, the band has comprised

vocalist, guitarist, pianist and songwriter Matthew Bellamy, bassist and

backing vocalist Christopher Wolstenholme and drummer and percussionist

Dominic Howard. The band are known for mixing various musical styles

together, the most prominent being alternative rock, classical music,

and electronica.


Muse have released four studio albums to date. Their first, Showbiz, was

released in 1999, followed by Origin of Symmetry in 2001, Absolution in

2003 and Black Holes & Revelations in 2006, the latter of which garnered

the band a Mercury Prize nomination and a third place finish in the NME

Albums of the Year list for 2006.[1] Muse have also won many other music

awards throughout their career, including five MTV Europe Music Awards,

five Q Awards, four NME Awards, two BRIT awards and four Kerrang!

Awards. Their most recent release is HAARP, a live album documenting

their performances at Wembley Stadium in London on 16 and 17 June 2007.




Formation and early years (1992–1997)


The members of Muse played in separate bands during their stay at

Teignmouth Community College and Coombeshead College in the early

1990s.[2] The formation of Muse began when Bellamy successfully

auditioned for the part of guitarist in Dominic Howard's band. They

asked Chris Wolstenholme, who played drums at the time, to learn to play

bass guitar for the band. Chris agreed and took up lessons.


In 1994, under the name Rocket Baby Dolls and with a goth/glam image,

the group won a local battle of the bands contest, smashing their

equipment in the process.[3][4] "It was supposed to be a protest, a

statement", Bellamy said, "so, when we actually won, it was a real

shock. A massive shock. After that, we started taking ourselves

seriously". Shortly after the contest, the three decided to forego

university, quit their jobs, change the band name to Muse, and move away

from Teignmouth.[5]


First EPs and Showbiz (1998–2000)


After a few years building a fan base, Muse played their first gigs in
