David Guetta doesn't need band

David Guetta admits he faces a huge battle with his record label as they want him to play with a band, something he doesn't want to do.

David Guetta refuses to play alongside a band.

The superstar DJ is battling with his record label because bosses want him to ditch his decks and perform with live musicians at his concerts, despite it being something he isn't interested in.

He said: "My record company has been suggesting I play with a band for years, but that's not me. I refuse. I'm a DJ. I've been fighting to say DJs can be real artists for 20 years.

"Now that I'm successful I'm not going to stop being a DJ so that I can turn into a pop star. I'm happy there is a DJ crossing over like I am and I hope it opens doors. But for me it's not about changing the way I perform or to change my life."

The Frenchman - who is performing at the Creamfields festival, which takes place in Warrington, northern England, from August 28 to 29 - believes a lot of his success is down to changing people's perceptions of music in America.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "In America they would not play dance music on the radio before. It was waiting to explode. When I used to play clubs in America I would invite artists to come and see me and they would say, 'Oh my God, I had no idea this was going on.'

"It was born in America but raised in Europe."
