Turns out growing up Muse frontman Matt Bellamy had no desire to be a rock star.

He apparently always pictured himself in a classical group but opted for rock because it gave him the best chance of travelling the world with his mates.

"When I was younger, my dream was always to be in music, but I didn't have any dream to be a rock star," he told The Sun.

"I wanted to be in a classical band or a jazz band.

"So when I started, I wanted to learn the jazz piano, or maybe the clarinet."
