According to Lady Gaga fan site PropaGaga, WHITESNAKE/ex-DIO guitarist Doug Aldrich hit the studio with the pop superstar on Tuesday, July 24. The rumored musical collaboration, which is expected to appear on Lady Gaga's next album, is said to have taken place in Los Angeles. "Whitesnake guitarist, Doug Aldrich, was recording with Gaga today in L.A.," the site tweeted. "@DJWS [DJ White Shadow] is rumored to have been in studio, as well."

In a series of tweets which have apparently since been deleted, Doug wrote, "Just got home from playing guitar on a killer track from one of our most popular female artists. Miss Lady Gaga. [She is] very sweet and great singer." He added, "I say she's sweet but she's a badass. . . [It was a] real fun day. I understand why she is mega. Super talented!"

Gaga previously worked with QUEEN guitarist Brian May on her last album, "Born This Way", on the track "YoĆ¼ And I", which was helmed by legendary DEF LEPPARD and AC/DC producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange.

Lady Gaga in January revealed she was a massive fan of DEF LEPPARD, stating her own music is influenced by the British rockers. She told The Sun, "With my music there's lots of really big DEF LEPPARD-style melodies in the choruses but it's electronic dance music. I'd call it avant-garde techno rock. It is very hard and very edgy."

She added, "There are a lot of rock influences on the album but not that it is rock music. It is an exploration of electronic music and techno songs but I have created a genre of metal/dance/techno/rock/pop music with a lot of anthemic choruses, because that is actually the music I love."

Lady Gaga previously spoke about her love for IRON MAIDEN and BLACK SABBATH, calling the experience of seeing MAIDEN for the first time a "life-changing" event.

The singer also appeared in photos with ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante and last year's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Alice Cooper.
