Anthrax Down To Work With Gaga

In an interview with Rock Rebel Magazine, Anthrax’s Frank Bello says the band would love to work with Lady Gaga “…but she just did the GRAMMYs with Metallica.  She’s a metalhead, which I love…of course we’d be very open to that, but nothing is planned now.”

Since Rob Halford said working with Gaga is on his “bucket list,” can’t we get everyone together “We Are The World” style and do one massive, bombastic track and music video?  We could invite the Ronnie James Dio hologram to really put things over the top!
