Dr Dre - Dr. Dre Wants Hendrix And Gaye Holograms

Dr. Dre hopes to see Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye return to the stage as holograms.

The rapper was a key figure in developing a hologram of Tupac Shakur - which performed on stage with him at Coachella festival on Sunday (15.04.12), fifteen years after the star's death - and is hoping the technology can be used for other deceased performers, such as the guitarist and the soul legend.

He told TMZ.com: ''Hopefully, different artists are able to bring out their favourite artists.

''Hopefully, we can see Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye. Let's see what happens.''

The 'Forgot About Dre' rapper is rumoured to be taking the holographic Tupac on tour, but has to find a find a way of making it project 360 degrees.

He added: ''I'm not sure right now, if there's a technology that's happening where the hologram could be 360 degrees.

''Right now it's flat, it just looks like it's three dimensional from the front, but I'm working on some new and different things for the future.''

Speaking about the project earlier in the week, Nick Smith, president of AV Concepts - the company that provided the technology for the hologram - said the rapper has been very involved in the technology's development.

He told MTV news: ''It was Dre's vision to bring this back to life. It was his idea from the very beginning and we worked with him and his camp to utilise the technology to make it come to life.''
