In an interview with Duke TV‘s Antoine De Montremy, ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian said he would love to collaborate with Lady Gaga.
“Yes, we would love to work with Lady Gaga. [Laughs] I think we put that out there a while ago. And then when we found out she was doing the Grammys with METALLICA, I was, like, ‘Wow! It makes sense. They’re gonna be on a big TV show and do it together.’ And I actually thought she was great on it.
“I’ve said since the beginning, since the first time I ever heard her voice, I always thought, ‘Wow, I would really love to hear her sing on a rock record, metal record, whatever,'” he continued. “And then our drummer, Charlie [Benante], ended up meeting her at a show and they became friends. And she knows all about ANTHRAX and METALLICA and all these bands… whoever — name the band. She’s a metalhead. So that made it even cooler. The fact that, all right, she knows that world, she understands that world, and she can sing the s**t out of this kind of music.”
Ian added: “I don’t know what their plans are — if METALLICA has more plans with Lady Gaga or if she has plans with METALLICA — but we would certainly love to write a song together, or a whole album. Let us be your backing band. Let us be your backing band, Lady Gaga. We could make beautiful music together. [Laughs]”
