Having recently watched the H.A.A.R.P. DVD by the mighty Muse for the first time in ages - it's the recording of their 2007 Wembley 'Black Holes & Revelations' tour concert (which I was lucky enough to see live!) & it showcases the quality of their performance.

Muse are a band that are very difficult to dislike - there is a mix of sound & when live their showmanship is quite something to behold. Watching their lead singer / guitarist / pianist (+ frontman / legend) Matt Bellamy is like watching one of the masters of guitar; Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Mark Knoffler, etc.or the more recent upstarts like; Slash, Kirk Hammet, John Fusciante or Jack White. The way this guy plays guitar is really something else - check out their video for Plug in Baby from the H.A.A.R.P. DVD & you'll see what I mean:

I strongly suggest checking these guys out if you haven't already - they've been round the world many times, released fantastic songs, have played festivals like Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, V & even played to a sold-out Wembley (the pinacle for UK bands as far as I'm concerned) twice (so far)

....the mighty MUSE we salute you
