Gene Simmons Says Kiss Are Open To Working With Lady Gaga

Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Gaga?’ Well, not exactly, but in a recent interview with Billboard Magazine, lead demon Gene Simmons had a few interesting things to say about Lil’ Miss Meat Dress herself. “She’s terrific,” said Simmons. “I don’t like that kind of music, but if you listen to what she did with Tony Bennett, the girl can sing.” Dr. Love then declared, “She could do straight-ahead rock. If I were her I would come out with a rock band next time and just rock it out.”

One thing that, not surprisingly, Simmons already had in mind, was a Kiss/Gaga pairing. “When ‘Freak’ (from the forthcoming album, ‘Monster’) was being written, Lady Gaga got interested in singing on it,” said Simmons. “It espouses her emotions about being comfortable in your skin and all that stuff. Paul and Gaga were gonna sing it, and then finally I suggested Paul should sing it by himself.”

“Gaga, in my estimation, is the only rock star out there, modern.” said Simmons. It’s no secret that Miss Gaga is a metal/hard rock fan from way back, citing both Iron Maiden and Kiss among her favorites. “She’s a fan!” Simmons continued, “She came backstage a few tours ago, before her meteoric rise, went to the shows, hung out with the kids in the front. They didn’t know who she was, so she was there as a fan and then came backstage and told us about how she has Kiss parties where they all dress up as Kiss and run around.”
