Chris Wolstenholme, bassist for the British band Muse may be rising in popularity here in the US, thanks in large part to the bands appearance on all three ‘Twilight Saga’ soundtracks, but that doesn’t mean he likes it.
Chris told the BBC recently that the movies aren’t his ‘cup of tea’ and likens appearing on the soundtrack to having to ‘sell his soul.’
“It’s very difficult in America because you don’t have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national. You have to take every opportunity you get over there and sometimes you have to sell your soul.”
Stephenie Meyers, author of the ‘Twilight Saga’ books has credited Muse with being her, well, muse throughout the writing process. Meyers even dedicated the four and final book, ‘Breaking Dawn,’ to the band and was insistent that the band be featured on the movie’s soundtracks.
However, it seems the band is indifferent to Meyers’s love.
“When we were in the studio writing [Neutron Star Collision], one minute they said they wanted to use it in the end credits, then they said they wanted to use it in another scene. Then it was another scene and in the end we were like, ‘Do what you want with it, we don’t care any more’.”
The band currently wrapped up a US tour.
