The member of KISS says the band are so inspired by Lady GaGa's flamboyant persona and outrageous stage costumes.

Glam rockers are taking credit for 's outrageous style, branding the "Poker Face" hitmaker a "female version" of their band. The "Detroit Rock City" hitmakers admit they'd love to enlist GaGa as the fifth member of the group, insisting they inspired the 24 year old's flamboyant persona and stage costumes.

says, "She's not Lady GaGa, she's really Lady Kiss. I love the vibe, the big mouth and the big visuals. She's the most exciting thing to happen since us. She's a female version of us. One of the first things we learned was to treat the audience as the guv'nor (boss). When they buy a ticket they become your boss. We just work here. She realizes that her fans deserve the best you got because they pay your wages."

Earlier in 2009, KISS have also praised as "a powerful and attractive man." Gene said back then, "He can come on tour whenever he'd like. -- You gotta go big. Gotta be strong. You gotta be a rock, baby!"
