Muse are like Foo Fighters and AC/DC in my opinion. They do what they do better than anyone else, and they rarely stray from “the formula”. I do not say this disparagingly. I absolutely love the fact that I know what I’m going to get from these bands. Call it musical comfort food. Call it whatever you want. I am grateful for bands who deliver the goods every single time.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
