Hello! I go by the terribly unimaginative handle Mnero as my name is Maria Nero. You may know me on Instagram as Muse Historical Society Feel free to follow me!!!
or on Twitter as Muse Historical Society Follow me there too!!
If you're still into Facebook, I'm at Muse Historical Society
I also have a snazzy YouTube Channel featuring, of course, Muse Videos!
AND DID I MENTION MATT BELLAMY WISHED ME HAPPY BIRTHDAY?? Still can't get over it. What a sweetheart.
AND I just managed to get hold of Matt's 2007 Stadium Tour AAA Pass! Yay!
Muse's producer from the 1st EPs and early albums agreed to answer a few questions for me! He was so nice. You can read the interview HERE
I am currently working on a replacement web site for the now defunct MuseCollectors.com that lists Muse collectibles, CDs, how to spot a fake autograph, what's out there to trade, etc. If anyone is interested in helping me let me know!
Either way, Muse is my passion and Muse History is my specialty. I'm always on the web and social media looking for Muse related info. I'm very responsive to questions and many look to me for answers to Muse related questions and also provide me with inside information to add to the Musewiki.
Muse is life.
I've only just begun....
