Muse 'would like to write Bond theme'

Muse drummer Dom Howard has revealed that the band would like to record the next James Bond theme.

Howard, who played the drum kit on hits such as Hysteria, New Born and Time is Running Out, said the band would say yes if they were asked to write the song.

Speaking to BBC News, he commented: "I think it could work.

"Certainly some of our music fits with the James Bond vibe."

If Muse get their wish, they would be following in the footsteps of acts such as Paul McCartney and Wings, who wrote the title song to the 1973 film Live and Let Die.

Other artists to have performed a Bond movie theme over the years include Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey and Lulu.

However, a British band has not been given the task since Duran Duran recorded A View To A Kill in 1985, the film which saw Roger Moore bow out as 007.
