Damon Albarn wants to be hologram

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Singer Damon Albarn says he hopes to live on as a hologram after his death.

The 49-year-old singer is fascinated by the fact his animated band Gorillaz have recorded with a number of now- deceased stars, including Bobby Womack, Lou Reed, Ike Turner and Dennis Hopper.

But they will still be able to appear with his group in form, and hopes his own virtual likeness will be belting out his hits in the years to come, reported Contactmusic.

"We could almost have a whole evening of people who aren't here any more. I love the idea that eventually when I am here no longer I'll be just a hologram. They'll just press that button and up I pop," he says.

Besdies Gorillaz, Damon works with a string of other acts and projects, including Blur, The Good, The Bad and the Queen, and Express, and compares his diverse career to being a farmer.

"I'm like a rotational crop farmer. I wanted to be a farmer as a child. I don't think you should push anything unless it's fertile ground.
