Santana wouldn't rule out Gaga, Bieber collaborations
Guitar legend Carlos Santana has said that "nothing is out of the realm of possibility" and named Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber as two artists he wouldn't totally rule out as collaborating partners.
The axeman was incorrectly quoted by Indian news source dnaindia.com as saying, “I believe that collaborations should only happen between two people who complement each other. I cannot go ahead and collaborate with Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber. I have always maintained that. Music is not a competition. It is harmony. It is not Olympics where you have to outdo each other.”
Santana has corrected the publication, saying that his intended meaning was in fact the complete opposite.
“I like to crystallize and correct the press in New Delhi. My accurate statement was ‘By the grace of GOD, it is not impossible to collaborate (share music) with Mr. Andrea Bocelli, Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber," he said.
"It’s a matter of the right song and some willingness. I hold my sister and two brothers in the same light and I am grateful that nothing is out of the realm of possibility’.
