Muse bassist compares being in "Twilight" to selling soul

 Our apologies to Stephenie Meyers, but Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme recently told BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat that landing a song in all three Twilight films was akin to “selling his soul.”

“I’m not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things, but sometimes you’ve just got to get your music out there in different ways,” Wolstenholme said. “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.”

Wolstenholme also told Radio 1 that when they gave “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)” to Eclipse he was almost apathetic. “When we were in the studio writing it, 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.’”

Wolstenholme did say that Muse is beginning to make some real headway in the States (something that might have to do with this recent movie exposure for the group). “It’s going great over there,” Wolstenholme said. “Early this year, we started playing in arenas, so it was great to finally take over the full production that we toured with in Europe.” by:Jonah Bayer
