cause i’m loving MUSE! and i found out that the lead guitar and vocalist of MUSE, Matthew Bellamy is the son of George Bellamy who was the rhythm guitarist for the British band The Tornados.
They are famous for this song.
That song is called “Telstar” and was a #1 hit in 1962, which leads us to this MUSE song.
Knights of Cydonia
The song features vocals from both Bellamy‘s higher and lower ranges layered and both synthesised and live trumpet parts. The guitar sound in the song was inspired by “Telstar”. The song, taken in entirety, also bears a striking resemblance to George Bellamy’s composition “Ridin’ the Wind”.
Bellamy has stated that on the album in general he tried to create a vision of what is occurring in the song. For example, the bassline has a galloping rhythm depicting someone riding a horse.
