Lady Gaga Says Led Zeppelin Inspired Her, Hopes To Write Rock Songs

Pop superstar Lady Gaga has expressed interest to record music inspired by the likes of rock legends Led Zeppelin, reports NME.

The singer, who released an album with jazz icon Tony Bennett in September, revealed her desire to tackle the genre "in the future" during a recent "Ask Me Anything" exchange with fans on Reddit.

"I was in a classic rock band at the same time I was in a jazz band in high school and doing jazz state competitions," Lady Gaga told fans. "We were called 'Mackin' Pulsifier,' I have a real passion for Robert Plant's vocals, Led Zeppelin was a huge inspiration for me," she said.

"I'm certain that side of my musicianship will seep through the pores of music in the future," she declared.

Lady Gaga was also asked, by a metal enthusiast, if she listens to songs that would be considered "out of character" for her, particularly those in the metal genre.

"Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath," the 28-year-old singer said. "I need to write a song called 'Lady Gaga.'  It's the most metal thing you can do!"

She elaborated: "I'm actually also a metal dudette, worked at a metal bar for years, and was a go-go dancer at rockn'roll clubs." "Last night, when I got a tattoo of the monster paw, I was listening to Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Metallica, AC/DC, Judas Priest," she said.

She went on to illustrate further the diversity in her musical tastes.

"And then other times I listen to Sigur Ros and nature sounds: like birds, water and such," she said. "But on other nights, I like to slug whisky and scream Bruce Springsteen and Garth Brooks with my dad in the bar at his restaurant. I have a lot of different sides to my personality, but even more different sides musically," Lady Gaga said.
