Muse made and appearance on an Italian TV show about futbol named “Quelli che il Calcio” on September 20, 2009. When asked to not play live and use a track on the talk show, they refused and rebelled in their own way by pulling a Nirvana, when they played Top Of The Pops.
During the performance of the song “Uprising,” lead vocalist and guitarist, Matthew Bellamy, faked the drums while their actual drummer, Dominic Howard, lip synced the song and played bass. Their bassist, Christopher Wolstenhome, took on the guitar and keys.
Sad thing is that nobody from the TV show even noticed. Check out the video…
