Muse Frontman Matt Bellamy Wants To Retire And Grow Hemp
Even though his band just released their new album “The Resistance”, rocked this years Coachella festival, and were credited as the inspiration for the Twilight series by author Stephenie Meyer, the rocker said in an interview that he plans to retire and become a hemp farmer.
The 32-year-old musician owns a sprawling country estate in Devon, England, and plans to farm hemp to create paper and other materials from the plant. But if that isn’t enough, Bellamy is already using the land as a sheep farm with a flock of 50 Dorset Downs sheep and two rams.
He said of the animals that, “When I stop touring I’m going to hang around there and start shearing sheep.”
