Vampire Music

Polly pointed out to me that Stephanie Meyer, the Twilight Series author, mentions she listens to music while she writes. She even put her playlist on line: http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/twilight_playlist.html

Ironically, she claims her greatest muse is a band called Muse! Check out a ridiculously cool video by them at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV1bRfLHA3A

She also had a "Twilight Concert" featuring the lead singer of Blue October, Justin Furstenfeld (conspicuously missing from the above play list):

I'm not even half-way through her first book, but I like her taste in music! I was also interested to see that she list both Maeve Binchy and Douglas Adam among her favorite authors.

Ken that video was awesome! That is actually one of my favorite songs to play on guitar hero even though it is a long hard one!

Is that Carl or Velevet playing the guitar? How come I've never heard of the band? Of course, I hadn't heard of Snow Patrol either.

Okay, you know what I think about the video...but my curiosity got the best of me trying to figure out who the actors are.

If you go to Wikipedia, there is a page for this song with a section about the video. You were right. They aren't band members.
