Muse Diss Rick Rubin At MPG Awards, See Winners List

February 12, 2010
Muse Diss Rick Rubin At MPG Awards, See Winners ListMuse took a cheeky swipe at their former producer Rick Rubin while picking up a Music Producers Guild Award (MPG) in London last night.

The Devon trio started work on their fifth studio album 'The Resistance' with Rubin, but decided to ditch him and go it alone solo.

Yesterday, picking up their gong for UK single of the year for 'Uprising', Matthew Bellamy took the opportunity to give the legendary producer a good kicking.

"And we'd like to thank Rick Rubin for teaching us how not to produce," he said to laughs and cheers. “"I thought you'd like that one."

Somewhat ironically, Rubin, who was not present at the ceremony, was named as the International Producer of the Year.

Rubin has worked with a dizzying array of acts including Metallica, Johnny Cash, Nine Inch Nails, Slayer, Slipknot, U2, Justin Timberlake, Run DMC, AC/DC, Tom Petty and many more.
