Glasvegas almost landed collaboration with Lady Gaga

Scottish rockers Glasvegas once came close to recording a collaboration with Lady Gaga after the pop superstar declared her admiration for the band.

Glasvegas guitarist Rab Allan recently let slip the news on Facebook.com after posting a link to a YouTube.com video featuring the Poker Face hitmaker gushing about the group.


When a friend commented on the clip and suggested they set up a duet, Allan revealed, "It nearly happened a while back. Funny story."


The musician stops short of expanding on the tale, but went on to claim that Gaga had sent the band a photo showing her dressed up in their trademark leather jacket and sunglasses, with her hair styled into a quiff with a message asking if she could be Geraldine, the protagonist their 2008 single is named after.
