Muse eye Bond theme

We'll have some of that, say Brit rock outfit

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

British rock band Muse have told the BBC they'd like the chance to have a go at the next James Bond theme.

Drummer Dom Howard told Auntie: "It's something we'd probably say yes to, or at least give it a good go. Certainly some of our music fits with the James Bond vibe - and I think it could work."

He added: "The last few have been pretty good. But I think we could do a good job."

The Quantum of Solace theme - Another Way to Die - was the work of Alicia Keys and Jack White. Chris Cornell performed You Know My Name for Casino Royale, but the last Brit outfit to grace a 007 movie was Duran Duran, way back in 1985 with A View To a Kill.

Muse fans might be thinking that Apocalypse Please from Absolution is a top Bond theme candidate, but Howard said that United States of Eurasia - from the band's new album The Resistance - "could have worked but it's probably a bit late for that now".

Pressed by the Beeb as to whether Muse would consider doing a full film score, Howard said: "It's not something we've done as a band, but we sometimes get asked for that kind of thing. It's a bit weird in the Hollywood world, because you spend a lot time being told what to do and that's a bit of a pain because we like to do what we want.

"So, I think if you can find a director you can really relate to, and it's a great film, and you know you can work well together, then it could be a possibility." ®
