French DJ David Guetta recently shared that he had some out-of-this-world plans for the future. One of which would, in fact, take him off the planet!
Guetta said that it was his ambition to be the first man to DJ in space.
During an interview with KISSFM, David talked a bit about his aspiration and even revealed how the idea came to him.
In 2011, David Guetta previewed some of his newest music to news journalists on a flight from Paris to Ibiza.
The 46-year-old DJ said he was inspired mid-flight to aim higher.
Since then, Guetta has reportedly looked into everything it would require for him to make his dream a reality.
“I was speaking to this guy from the space [program], and he was telling me, ‘OK, so the training is very easy. You just have to fly a few times on a military plane and imagine that it’s going to be like this but ten times more intense.'”
Guetta confessed that the conversation left him “a little” to go through with the preparation for a space trip.
Even so, David Guetta appears to have not abandoned his plans completely.
“To be the first guy to DJ in space? That would be crazy, I mean, that’s history.”
Even though Guetta has his eyes on history, at least a few naysayers have their eyes on him.
In an article titled, These DJs Deserve to Be in Space Before David Guetta, the writer discussed artists he felt to be more deserving of the title “First DJ In Space”.
DJs mentioned in the article include Daft Punk, Skrillex, Hardwell, and Armin van Buuren.
The author was quick to note that van Buuren hadmade plans for a space trip prior to Guetta.
According to Armin’s website, he had been invited on a trip into space by SXC.
However, the blurb doesn’t mention anything about the act of DJing.
Even if Armin somehow made it to space first, this could mean that David Guetta still had a chance at his dream to be the first to actually DJ in space.
Despite the difficult training, Guetta would be able to leave a permanent mark on history.
Do you think David Guetta will ever make it into space? Should he be the first DJ in space?
