About Matthew James Bellamy
Matthew Bellamy is frontman of British rock band Muse. He was born on June 9, 1978 in Cambridge, England to George Bellamy who was the rhythm guitarist in the 1960s pop group The Tornados, the first British band to have a United States number one song, with "Telstar," and his wife Marilyn.
In the mid-1980s, the family moved to Teignmouth, Devon. After the divorce of Bellamy's parents, he moved in with his grandmother, who pushed him towards learning to play the guitar at the age of fourteen.
Muse formed in Teignmouth, Devon in 1994 under the name of Rocket Baby Dolls. Still using the name Rocket Baby Dolls, they won the school's "Battle of the Bands" which led them to take the band seriously and so they decided to change their name to a more "professional" one; Muse. The band consisted and still consists of Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Dominic Howard (drums and percussion). Muse met at Teignmouth Community College where Bellamy had been in a number of bands previously including Carnage Mayhem and Gothic Plague with drummer Dominic Howard. When members of Gothic Plague left due to other interests, Bellamy and Howard asked Wolstenholme to join. Muse however struggled to establish themselves during their early years, but have since gone on to enjoy worldwide success. Muse blend alternative, hard rock, progressive rock, classical music and electronica and are well known for their energetic and visually dazzling live performances. On 16–17 June 2007 Muse became the first band to sell out the newly built Wembley Stadium in London. Muse have released five studio albums, Showbiz (1999), Origin of Symmetry (2001), Absolution (2003), Black Holes and Revelations (2006) and The Resistance (2009). Muse have also released one live album, HAARP (2008) and two compilation albums. The first, Random 1-8 was only released in Japan and is a collection of B-sides from the Showbiz period. The second compilation Hullabaloo (2002) consisted of two discs and was designed to accompany the Hullabaloo DVD. The first disc contains a collection of B-sides recorded between March 1999 and October 2001. The second disc features 11 live songs recorded on 28–29 October 2001 at 'le Zenith' in Paris. Bellamy also makes an appearance as a playable character in Guitar Hero 5, which features the song "Plug In Baby", from Origin of Symmetry.
Bellamy began dating actress Kate Hudson in spring 2010. It was announced in January 2011 that she is pregnant with their child.
