That is a massive compliment to Coldplay, but it is also a controversial pop view. Opinion is always subjective, but Chris Martin and co (despite selling millions of albums) divide opinion. Besides which, is it really possible to compare the two groups now?
Kanye said: “America has, and probably always will, dominate music across the globe but it’s always been the British who pull out that very special band.
“We have had amazing bands like Nirvana and Guns N’ Roses but it’s the British who have had the cream with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones setting the standard. 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.’ I have worked with Chris Martin and the man is a genius – as a performer and a songwriter he is on the same level as John Lennon.
“I am not saying this lightly, it’s really how talented the guy is. And Coldplay can go down as the best ever – even bigger than The Beatles.
“I have worked with Chris before but I’d like to work with him and the rest of the group next time.
“I have worked with some greats in my career but I really want to get in the studio and make an album with Coldplay.
