KISS would like to record a song with Lady Gaga.

'Marry the Night' singer Gaga has admitted she is a fan of the glam rockers - famed for their face paint and spectacular stage shows - and guitarist Paul Stanley is keen for them to get together on record.

When asked if they would collaborate, he told LAWeekly.com: "Anything's possible. She's terrific, and it's not improbable."

Also like Gaga, Paul says one of the keys to the band's success has been their dedication to putting on a larger than life show for their audience.

He added: "We ultimately have always seen ourselves as a live band that prides itself not only in playing music but in entertaining. And I say 'ENTERTAINMENT' in capital letters with lights flashing around it. We're proud of that.

"There's nothing worse than going to a concert and paying for a high-priced ticket and seeing somebody stroll out onto stage and sit on a stool. You kind of wonder where your money went."

Paul also claims the band's costumes - which see Paul dress as the 'Starchild', bassist Gene Simmons as a Demon, Eric Singer as The Cat and Tommy Thayer as The Spaceman - are also integral to keeping their mystique alive.

He said: "I don't necessarily want to buy a t-shirt with a guy on it who looks like my neighbour. Part of [the reason our fans are so devoted] is to do with how boring most bands are."

KISS tour the US later this month.
