You know, a lot of you are coming across as very scared of change.

LOTS of bands have let someone else sing at some point. Are those bands somehow inferior because they let someone other than their lead vocalist sing? The music was still obviously them so losing Matt's voice for ONE song won't hurt. I mean, are the instrumentals lesser songs because Matt isn't singing? Nope.

Ah sure, why not. If Queen didn't mind letting the drummer sing on the odd song (and he had a very distinctive voice, nothing like Freddy's), then I don't see the problem in letting Chris have a go.

No.

Chris can't sing for more than 69 seconds before he needs a beer to top up his vocal oil...

Green Day have done it, on Homecoming the song was in 5 sections and the drummer and bassist sang one each. Maybe Muse could do something like that. Except obviously Muse's would be a lot better than Green Day's.

Dom does sing on SMBH but then his voice is distorted using the effects so you arent really hearing Dom singing.

I would'nt let Chris take lead vocals because he is not long gave up smoking and it does seem if he does struggle to hold a note. Thats my opininion on it.

It would be good to see Morgan take lead vocals for a section of a song as he does backing vocals in quite a few songs.

First off, Chris can hold notes for a long time. Have you heard Apocalypse Please, or Soldier's Poem live? Morgan doesn't do as many backing vocals as Chris, and since Morgan is an extra for the live shows and isn't in the studio, that'd never happen.

Dom's voice goes through a vocoder.

I don't think he should, he has a great voice but it's not Muse-like to have Chris on main vocals

No, I don't think he should, and its not because I'm "afraid of change" I just don't think Chris is a good vocalist.

Oh here we go, people reading the comment incorrectly.

It's fair enough if you think Chris can't sing but the people saying you can't let him sing because Muse = Matt's vocals are the ones I don't understand, seeing as there are several bands who you can identify by their lead vocalist yet they've given another singer a shot at some point...

Three of my favourite bands have tried it. It didn't work for the Jimmy Hendrix Experience, it really didn't work for The Cooper Temple Clause (Waiting Game *shudders*), and it didn't really work that well for the Delays when used too extensively.

Still, I also really like The Beatles, Kasabian, and Pure Reason Revolution, and it works for them at least. I just can't see Chris pulling it off for an entire song though. Maybe if he just did a verse or a chorus, like SMBH for instance, or the shared chorus in TSP it would work though. But then he'd just be doing what he's already done. Hmmmm...
