Kanye West: Coldplay Are Better Than The Beatles

November 10, 2010
Kanye West: Coldplay Are Better Than The BeatlesKanye West has praised Coldplay and said the band have the potential to be better than The Beatles.

West made the comment during a discussion about the differences between American and British music.

The rapper said that while the US generated commercially successful acts, it was the UK who always created that “very special band”.

"We have had amazing bands like Nirvana and Guns N' Roses ut it's the British who have had the cream with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones setting the standard,” he told The Sun.

“I love Coldplay, and I honestly think they are on the same level as The Beatles. In 30 years, when Coldplay are old men, people will look back and say, 'These guys were more talented than The Beatles'.”

West went on to described Coldplay's Chris Martin as a “genius” and said he was “on the same level as John Lennon”.

He also revealed that he would like to record an album with the group.

West is due to release his new solo album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' on November 22.
