Anthrax: 'We're Hoping Lady Gaga Will Cover Our Song'
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has recently expressed hopes that Lady Gaga would cover one of his band' tunes, praising the pop star as "a huge metalhead."

"We are actually hoping Lady Gaga will cover an Anthrax song," he told NME. "'Cause we know she's a big fan, and Charlie [Benante] is actually friends with her, our drummer, and so is our bass player, Frankie [Bello], actually.

"And she is a huge metalhead," Scott continued (via Blabbermouth). "She knows her s--t. She knows all about Anthrax and she knows things that we don't even remember. So I jokingly said once, 'Tell her to cover one of our songs and put it on iTunes.' [Laughs]"

During a separate Kaaos TV chat, Ian noted that not much new has happened when it comes to the band's new album.

"Nothing's finished," he kicked off when asked about "Worship Music" follow-up. "There's more ideas than 12, probably about 16 or 17. Nothing's finished at all, everything's in some state of construction - some are closer to being finished, some are just an idea. It's just a work in progress."

Asked about plans to hit the studio, the guitarist replied, "There's no plan. Just like 'Worship Music', when it's ready, it's ready."
