Blur's Alex James: 'Taylor Swift is bigger than The Beatles'

Blur bassist Alex James has suggested Taylor Swift is "bigger" than the Beatles.

The pop-rock group achieved worldwide fame in the 1960s as they travelled the globe.

Speaking to Digital Spy, James said that he thinks Swift may technically be a bigger proposition than the Liverpool band.

He said: "A big one's still a big one in the world, like Taylor Swift is bigger than The Beatles, but it tends to be singers and backing musicians.

"I think bands are quite expensive to produce these days."

The quotes come days after James praised Swift in an interview with the Daily Mail.

He said: "She’s bigger than anyone ever and if you’ve got little girls you can’t resist The Swift.

"They’re great tunes, she’s smoking hot - what’s not to like?"
