Matt Bellamy plans to retire from music and become a hemp farmer.
The Muse frontman ‘ who owns a sprawling farm in Devon ‘ wants to transform the land into a factory to make paper and material from the plant.
The millionaire musician says when he eventually stops touring he will also spend his time sheep shearing.
Matt – who is dating Hollywood actress Kate Hudson – said of his farm: ‘ don’t live there, it’s just land with a couple of jaded barns that need to be renovated. It’s a nice place to camp but my long-term plan is to grow industrial hemp for making paper and material.
“When I stop touring I’m going to hang around there and start shearing sheep.”
The 32-year-old musician is already using the land as a sheep farm with a flock of 50 ewes and two rams.
“I got the sheep mainly because I’ve got a farm which has a lot of steep hills, so the grass gets out of control unless you get grazing animals in there – and it was too steep for cows.
“I’ve got Dorset Downs sheep – they’re hardy, they can handle the weather.”
This is not the first time Matt has spoken about his need for a break from touring, saying he sometimes thinks about living in a tent on his own.
The rocker – who grew up in Devon and is currently touring Australia -said: ‘ might just live in a tent on my own farm somewhere, isolated with a shotgun.
“It definitely feels like we’ve got to a certain level as a live band . So it could be time to take a break, back off for a bit and see if anybody misses us.
