Lady Gaga is in talks with Queen guitarist Brian May to take over as the band's new lead singer.

Original frontman Freddie Mercury died in 1991 and Paul Rodgers took on vocal duties for the group for five years from 2004.

The collaboration ended in 2009 and now the rockers are looking for another singer to complete their line-up so they can go back on the road.

May is hoping Gaga, whose stage name is inspired by their hit song Radio Ga Ga, will accept an offer to sing for them.

He tells 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. She’s not just a singer, she writes her own material."

The musician is also considering bringing in several guest vocalists to give renditions of Queen's hit tracks as part of a TV show: "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."

Brian and Roger, just retire and enjoy the checks you get without having to kill Queen fans with things like this.

She was Freddie's favourite singer anyway.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

This is a tragedy!
Queen should take released of concert unknown, unknown songs, should prepare an anthology!
They shouldn't work together with Lady Gaga!

Well.. if it's my last chance to see Queen,.... i guess it'll be with the drag queen..

Ah well,... at least there'll be TONS of hot chicks at the shows...

i just cant imagine the band working out that well with a woman... no offense.

Although i'd pay to see the hell out of it (aware this expression makes no sense)... even if Annie Lennox fronted the band, i'd still think it was pretty off..

oh well..

like the man said about FM's legacy "just don't make me boring"

Well... if Brian and Rog sing...

this wouldn't be TERRIBLE for new material...
If if she'
as long as it's not called QUEEN.

Ideas??

Maylor Gaga?

BML?
BMG?

Radio Ga Ga?
Tarnishing the Crown ? ;-P

as much as i used to whistle that tune in high school... to me Lady GaGa is pretty much what the song was about...

pop trash on the radio.

Either way... she IS talented i've heard.

oh well... if she's TRULY a fan... this couldn't be all that bad... just... FOR THE LOVE OF GOD...

NO FUCKING DANCERS ONSTAGE....(unless ur part of the band) .... this is rock and fucking roll.

It's getting more and more embarrassing to be a Queen fan!

Please, don't let this happend!

Brian May and Roger Taylor are getting old, they don't have to sell their souls now...!

To me this is very good news. Imho Lady Gaga is kinda underrated, she is a lot like Freddie was.

1/ Lady GaGa is not the new Madonna; she might have been, but she's already on the way out (The Fame sold 12m copies worldwide, Born This Way 5m).

2/ Yet, as things stand now, Queen would be still her backing band and people in US arenas would take their pee break during Love Of My Life the same way Queen fans did during Seagull

3/ Lady GaGa fronting Queen: WTF? What about Fergie ? She's also sold a lot of pop records and she's probably looking for a new band too?

The Queen Extravaganza fiasco, now this ... It will never happen, but it would be nice if Bri and Rog could think of something that makes sense in the near future

All this is bringing confusion to the 40th anniversary

If this actually happend and it was a serious tour around the world it would bring Queen back to the attention of millions of music fans.Freddie would think it was a great little earner and i am sure give it his thumbs up.I doubt if will happen though just another little rumour i guess.Untill i see something in writing online or in the press, i wont be getting excited.

people, you are a bunch of moaners! 

i kinda like the idea of a tv-collaboration-show. 
and i do like the idea of occasional vocalists as long as they get their job well done! as long as it's not paul again.

the problem seems to be that everybody here expects at least a new freddie. obviously, that's not possible. so why's that everybody complains on any activity by the guys ? it's good news.

it's obvious that they don't WANT to write any new material anymore, isn't it.

it's just as they said on queensday... this IS some kind of retirement. 

c'mon... lady gaga wouldn't be the worst choice they have made.

...at least she got balls :-)

greetz,

"Lady Gaga - Gaga To Front Queen?"

If this happens, I would be willing to contribute to the costs of a hitman to knock off Brian and Roger, out of strictly humanitarian motives.

This is at least as perverse as Queen + 5ive.
