Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian put out his request to work with pop icon Lady Gaga. With the recent buzz Gaga has made in the metal world recently with her 2017 Grammy performance of "Moth Into Flame" with Metallica, it's no surprise this metal icon wants to be next in line.
In an interview with Duke TV, Ian told interviewer Antoine De Montremy, "Yes, we would love to work with Lady Gaga. 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 shit 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."
