Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has also recently announced a new solo LP entitled Cryosleep, which features songs recorded using Jeff Buckley’s Fender Telecaster. Last year, Bellamy revealed how he had purchased the guitar, and how it might inspire some more vintage-inspired instruments from Manson Guitars. He told Guitar.com: “We’ve been discussing doing a retro-style or retro-sounding Manson [guitar]. We may actually base some of it on the Jeff Buckley guitar.”
Buckley’s treasured blonde Telecaster was first loaned to him by photographer friend Janine Nichols – after a robbery at the late musician’s Los Angeles apartment left all his valuables stolen. Buckley would wield the Tele as his weapon of choice throughout his career: from his early gigging days at the East Village coffeehouse, to the recording of 1994’s Grace, up to his untimely death. After his passing, Buckley’s family returned the guitar to Nichols, who sold it in New York.
Cryosleep arrives on 16 July 2021 as part of Record Store Day.
