- About sazzrah
- London, England
- Reading, video editing, reading, blogging, reading, being a complete video game junkie? I blame my brothers for that last one.
- Psychotherapy student
- I first heard about Muse from my ex in 2001, he played their songs down the phone to me! It was the next day that Origin of Symmetry was released - so I've been a fan for a long old while.
I'm studying psychotherapy because I've always had this innate need to be of some use to the human race. I also receieved therapy at a difficult time in my life and I've seen the amazing good these wonderful people can do in helping others to realise they don't have to be anything more than themselves to be happy. I saw the good in that and I wanted to be a part of it. Not much else about me to say really. Hopefully I'll catch some Muse gigs on my way to enlightenment!

“What I want to clear up is that we’re not in any way trying to select who our audience is going to be. I don’t just want a load of 'cool' people to be into it. I want anyone who’s into it for the value of the music and what we are, and what we play live.” --Matt Bellamy, NME. Sept 2000
