The List of NME's 'coolest' people has been released with Mr Bellamy coming in at a quite respectable 46.
The Top spot went to Alice from Crystal Castles.
46. Matt Bellamy, Muse
[last year: 27]
Whether he's holding Wembley Stadium in thrall or discussing intergalactic conspiracy theories, Bellamy's greatest gift is his childlike impulsiveness. This is a man who once strapped a praying mantis to a rocket and sent it hurtling skyward, for a laugh.
