Gaga, whose stage name was inspired by Queen's 1984 hit 'Radio Ga Ga,' has been in talks with Queen guitarist Brian May about the collaboration, as May told Britain's Daily Express. "We talk about going out on the road all the time but there's a bit of a singer problem to put it mildly. We get a lot of offers to work with other people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she's very creative and is someone we've talked about singing, fronting the band with."
Gaga and May took to the stage together at the MTV VMAs in August, where Gaga opened as her male alter ego Jo Calderone while May jammed beside her as she chugged beer and chain-smoked on stage.
Original frontman Freddie Mercury died in 1991 and Paul Rodgers took on lead singer duties from 2004 to 2009 in a new incarnation of the band called Queen + Paul Rodgers. Since Q+PR split, Queen have been searching for a new vocalist to tour with, and May reveals Gaga may have already accepted the offer. "Lady Gaga has said she would like to do something with us," he shares.
For May, the collab would be a match made in heaven. "She's not just a singer," says May. "She writes her own material." But Mother Monster could be just the beginning. "We have talked about doing duets with other people and in a strange way I almost pressed the yes button. We were debating the idea of a TV show where we have all these guest stars. We didn't press it today but we are still looking at it," the rocker revealed.
