And to be honest that sense of being a reluctant frontman has stayed with me.
Anyone who comes to see Muse is not going to see Matt Bellamy the swaggering rock god youíre coming to hopefully see one of the best live shows around and hear some good music, we have put a lot of time and effort and not to mention lights and balloons into proving a few distractions from the fact that there isnít a Freddie Mercury in front of you. You donít get that many t shirts with Matt Bellamy on the front by himself and thatís absolutely fine with me. Also you donít hear many Muse songs which are about me. Bono and Liam Gallagher have a way of filtering their personas through song which is interesting. They can write quite personally I find that difficult or should i say i donít think it would be very interesting. I am interested in political issues and science and stuff and i find a way of writing stories about that in song Why should i give away anything personal? Whoís interested? But for example Stockholm Syndrome the psychological phenomenon which leads captives to fall in love with their captors is interesting. I find it much easier to immerse myself in a subject like that and write from the point of view of a persona in a fictitious scenario. That feels more real to me in some strange sort of way.
Being a frontman in the modern age isnít about being charismatic onstage anymore, you have to pull it off world stage with presidents and prime ministers Iíve held off backing a cause like Bono or Chris Martin they do a great job but Iím not naturally good with attention and id look like an idiot being a spokes man, I really do feel, how on earth do they do it? I do admire it, I donít have that sort of confidence i donít beat myself up about that i believe its quite normal to think why the fuck is everyone looking at me? Human insecurity is natural you might even say its an admirable quality because it keeps one questioning and investigating. Obviously its not so great when you are walking out onstage in front of 70,000 people at Wembly stadium thatís when you have to summon up any pretension to being a rock god that you possibly can and let the music do the rest.
I don't think I can possibly love the man any more than I do after this.

Messed up, that is.

All I can say is I am glad I didn't have to compile a list, I wouldn't know where to begin.
This is impossible!

I'm impressed by Matt's modesty - he doesn't need to be brash to be a proper rock star.

Bono and Freddy Mercury are better frontmen than Liam.

How do you define "best frontman"? If it's about on stage charisma and connecting with the audience, then Matt comes nowhere. If it's about being a great singer and musician, then Matt is definitely in the top ten. Incidentally I have nothing against frontmen who have "on stage charisma" and "connect with the audience", Freddie Mercury being a prime example. But one of the things I admire about Matt, apart from his prowess on guitar, piano and vocals, is his down to earthness.

Don't you just love modest celebrities?

Has anyone got a list of the top 100?

Once someone gets this, someone tell me how big Matt's section in the magazine is. I won't spend $10 for a magazine if he's barely in it
