Matt Bellamy wants Richard Branson to put him in outer space

08.07.11

In the wake of the launch of NASA’s last ever space shuttle mission, Muse fronman Matt Bellamy has revealed to Contactmusic that he thinks it would be a great idea for the alternative rock band to record a song whilst in space.

Bellamy is fishing for support from entrepreneur Richard Branson, who is working on a scheme called “Virgin Galactic”, which will be the first commercial spaceship airline. The falsetto star has stated “We’re trying to blag a free trip on it [Virgin Galactic]. I’m going to try to convince Richard Branson to let us make a music video or record a song up there. I think that would be cool. Would I be scared? I think I’ll be alright.”

Here’s hoping they don’t get sucked into a Supermassive Black Hole.

Muse will be headlining the Reading and Leeds festivals in August.
