Kiss To Collaborate With Lady Gaga?
Kiss could be set for a collaboration with Lady Gaga. "Anything's possible. She's terrific, and it's not improbable," said guitarist Paul Stanley in LA Weekly. The comment could be more a way of opening welcome arms to the idea than an official announcement. Stanley was only asked because the new Kiss album is called "Monster", and Gaga's fans are called "little monsters". A tenuous link, perhaps. But Gaga has been working the classic rock crowd for months. First she praised her heroes Bruce Springsteen and Def Leppard, before being snapped backstage at an Iron Maiden gig. Alice Cooper invited her to take part in his madcap stage show, and Queen guitarist Brian May is said to be involved in her new album. Will the next Lady Gaga album feature all of her heroes, positioning her as more a rock than pop star? There's certainly money in stadium rock. U2 smashed revenue records when they completed their "360" tour this year, so the genre shift could be a strategic one. The affection for Gaga from the Kiss camp is nothing new. Last year, frontman Gene Simmons gave her a glowing endorsement (via Henne Music): "We appreciate Gaga," said Gene. "I'll take Gaga over Madonna any day. Anybody that gets visual on stage and is in your face... she's the most exciting thing I've seen in a decade."
