Queen Wants Lady Gaga As New Lead Singer
Could Lady Gaga soon be the new lead singer for rock band Queen? If rock guitarist Brian May has anything to say about it she will.
Queen has been touring for the last 20 years with hired singers after band frontman Freddie Mercury died of complications from AIDS. The bands last fill-in Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers quick the band in 2009 after five years and now their on the hunt once again.
Speaking with Britain’s Daily Express May said of Gaga:
“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. She’s not just a singer, she writes her own material.”
Even if Gaga doesn’t accept the position Brian May says Queen fans can expect to see more from the band in the near future:
“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. Lady Gaga has said she would like to do something with us.”
