In recent years Muse have won more Best Live Act In The World Today gongs than we’d care to count. Not bad for a three piece.
And while overblown light shows, giant spaceship paraphernalia and mind-bending guitar sounds won’t exactly harm the band’s live reputation, it’s hard to ignore the force of Matt Bellamy’s all-round performance. Semi-operatic falsetto, anyone?
Listen: Muse - Sunburn
"I'm undecided on the greatest singers poll. Freddie Mercury was a fantastic singer and an amazing frontman, however I think I'm going to have to pick Matt Bellamy of Muse. His live performances vocally are amazing and to be able to play guitar like that and sing at the same time is out of this world." (From Jack (Masamune) via Facebook, thanks)
"They're probably already listed, but #askmusicradar Matthew Bellamy from Muse and James Hetfield from Metallica." (From @julian3d09 via Twitter, thanks)
"Matt Bellamy." (From Carloz, Wiley and David via Facebook, thanks)
