Looks like Aggers will be interviewing Muse at some point tomorrow. Should be good - he does good interviews and has had Lily Allen on as a guest quite a few times. Not sure when exactly it'll be though.

Request -- can someone youtube it? Sure enough, it's not available internationally, or at least not in the US. Thx.

Haha yeah.

That interview kind of indicates that they'll be at Boxing Day (lucky bastards) so they might do the interview there.

Here's a little article on Chris' visit :happy:


Not a-Muse-d after England's Ashes thrashing

Post categories: 5 live blog
Colin Paterson | 10:42 UK time, Monday, 20 December 2010

So how did the England cricket team try and pick themselves up after their crushing defeat in the Third Ashes Test in Perth? Well, if you're Jimmy Anderson, you took Tim Bresnan to the Bassendean Oval to watch Muse.

On Sunday night, England's night watchman was singing along to Supermassive Black Hole, a mere eight hours after England had failed to dig themselves out of a Supermassive Black Hole.

This was a role reversal, because over the weekend it was not a case of England watching Muse, but Muse watching England.

The Devon trio, who headlined Glastonbury this year, sold out two nights at Wembley Stadium, and are nominated for three Grammys, took a box for the whole of the WACA test.

And on Saturday, bassist Chris Wolstenholme was our guest on Weekend Breakfast live from behind the Prindiville Stand.

Muse had altered the schedule of their seven date Australian tour so he could take in the Perth Test.

"We played in Melbourne in Wednesday, but I managed to persuade some of the guys to get a very early flight on Thursday, so we could get the first day in as well," he explained. "It's been amazing."

Chris fell in love with cricket as a young lad in Yorkshire, whilst watching Ian Botham's 138 in the first Test of the 86/87 Ashes on TV. Now he has fulfilled his dream of actually going to a Test in Australia. He was a fast bowler in his youth and has previously netted with Razorlight's Johnny Borrell - "He takes his bat on tour".

After the interview, I took Chris round the ground to show him the Test Match Special commentary box. He had a long conversation with Alec Stewart (including questions about the regulations of the size of wicket keeping gloves), Stuart Broad and Michael Vaughan said hello, and Aggers chatted with him about Lily Allen, who supported Muse at Wembley.

Unfortunately, their tour manager Dom managed to get a telling-off from Geoff Boycott by asking for an autograph at the wrong time. Simon Hughes even mentioned their visit during the TMS commentary and they have been invited back as lunchtime guests next summer.

England's collapse in less than an hour yesterday morning did actually have a posititve effect on fans heading to the Muse show. Chris admitted that if the Test had been in the balance come the fourth afternoon, the band were going to forgo a soundcheck. England being so bad yesterday morning allowed Muse to be so fantastic on Sunday night.

England fast bowler Jimmy Anderson has tweeted that Muse have inspired the team ahead of the fourth Ashes Test in Melbourne next week.

The Test runs from December 26-30, with England currently tied 1-1 with Australia in the series. Anderson wrote that he'd taken some time out by watching 's band's gig at Perth's Bassendean Oval last night (December 19).

"Went to see Muse last night," Anderson tweeted on hisTwitter page, Twitter.com/jimmyanderson9. "They showed us how to play in Perth. Up there with the best live band I've seen."

Meanwhile, Muse cold face the wrath of Australian authorities after bassist Chris Wolstenholme flaunted venue rules by smoking a cigarette during their gig at Melbourne's Ron Laver Arena on December 14, reports the Herald Sun.

That part is cool. Particuarly the reference to the SMBH. It just sounds weird when Jimmy Anderson and Muse cross paths.

I'd probably take an interest in sport if that happened.

Found out that my ex colleague who now lives in Australia and her daughter were sat in front of Muse at the cricket. And they got chatting to them!!! And there are photos, although I'm still waiting to see them! Lucky beggers.....
