Matthew Bellamy Net Worth

Read more about Matthew Bellamy Biography

To begin with, Matthew Bellamy was raised with his older brother Paul in Cambridge until the age of 10, when his family moved to the county of Devon. Although he started playing the piano at the age of five, his interest in music really began at 13, when his parents separated and he felt the need to fill the absence of his musician father. Under the influence of the latter, he started playing the guitar at 14. He spent his adolescence in the town of Teignmouth, Devon, living with his mother, but subsequently graduated with honours from the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in London.

Concerning his professional career, Bellamy is mostly known for his participation in the band Muse, which was established in 1994. The band consists of vocalist, guitarist and pianist Matthew Bellamy, drummer Dominic Howard and bassist Chris Wolstenholme. Their first studio album entitled “Showbiz” was released in 1999; the band was at that time often compared with another British rock band, Radiohead. Their second studio album “Origin of Symmetry” was released in 2001, and rose to 3rd place in the UK Albums Chart, and achieved platinum status, and the singles “Plug In Baby” and “New Born” both entered the top 20 of the UK Singles Chart. Two years later, their 3rd studio album “Absolution” (2003) hit the music charts in the UK; the lyrics of the album deal with conspiracy theories and political and scientific beliefs. In 2009, the band released the studio album “The Resistance”, that reached number one on the Dutch and Belgian charts. The most recent studio album – “Drones” – was released in the middle of 2015, and won a Grammy Award as the Best Rock Album in 2016. The Muse’s music is described as alternative rock, progressive rock and space rock, actually a mixture of (hard) rock with classical influences that is sometimes supplemented with electronic music in their later work. Another feature is the bombastic and pretentiousness in their music, which is also reflected in the performances of the band. Bellamy often uses his falsetto voice and writes on topics like love, conspiracy theories, alien and political issues. Clearly the bulk of Matthews’ net worth has come from his association with Muse.

Finally, in the personal life of Matthew Bellamy, he was in a relationship with the psychologist Gaia Polloni, but the two separated in 2009. In 2011, Matthew married the actress Kate Hudson; they have a son but in 2014 they divorced. At the beginning of 2015, Bellamy started a new relationship with the model and actress Elle Evans.

Quotes

  • There’s something in music which is obviously beyond language itself. It’s communication in its purest form.
  • Rachmaninov has some kind of weird dark edge to his music which I don’t think I’ve heard with any other kind of music before.
  • Being an atheist means you have to realise that when you die, that really is it. You’ve got to make the most of what you’ve got here and spread as much influence as you can. I believe that you only live through the influence that you spread, whether that means having a kid or making music.
  • To have your heart in pieces while every other aspect of your life couldn’t go better is a traumatic experience. In appearance, life is fine. But as you put your day in focus, everything turns grey. What happened made me realise that complete, absolute happiness doesn’t exist.
  • I prefer music that invents a universe.
  • I think the way I am on stage is probably who I really am. Everything else is a persona. It’s an unedited version of who you are. For me there’s something pure about that.
  • When I left I got an award for being the latest person in the history of the school. If you got three late marks for being over fifteen minutes late you’d get an after school detention. I got something like 257 marks. And I only lived about ten minutes away.
  • The best band in the world is Queen, definitely.
  • I try to play squash but I keep running into the walls.
  • I love Tom Waits because he’s an artist who makes me not afraid to get old, and that’s rare. I think it’s a rare kind of thing to have that level of wisdom. And his lyrics are just astounding; everything in life is inside his lyrics.
  • Paris Hilton came to the L.A. show, too. But she left during “Knights of Cydonia”, which is the first song on the set. If we’re offending ‘Paris Hilton’, we must be doing something right (In an interview by Q Magazine).
  • I’m sure one day we’re going to do a Dark Side of the Moon album. I think we’re going to go the whole nine yards and become a full prog-rock band with the 15-minute piano solo. I think we need to get that out of our system.
  • (MTV Europe awards, 2004) “I saw Eminem, actually I couldn’t get into the bathroom because Eminem was in there and he had about 10 security guards. I’m not sure if they were going to the toilet with him or just blocking…”
  • (First song he wrote) “I think the first song we did was ‘Small Minded’, which was when we were 15 years old, and its about the small minded attitudes of people in our town. We didn’t approve of this. Now the world, you know, is just not good enough for us, so we’ve got to change the world so it suit us. And thats what we’re in the process of doing right now. And the ideals breaking, crumbling. Ideals breaking – that’s what lifes all about, really”
