Adam Lambert -- The New King of Queen?
Posted May 24th 2009 2:15AM by TMZ Staff
We already know Adam Lambert can rock eyeliner like the late Freddie Mercury, but can he front Freddie's band? The guys from Queen aren't ruling it out after their performance on the "American Idol" finale.
In a Rolling Stone interview, Queen's lead guitarist Brian May said, "It's not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn't that easy. But I'd certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there."
There is also a poll where people can vote if Adam should "Rock with Queen" or "Go solo." Right now 58% feel he should rock with Queen. 42% think he should go solo. Not bad for a largly American audience that reads TMZ!!
I actually believe the ball's in Adam's court at this time because he's the one who's the curent talk of the town. One tour at best then he goes off to do his own thing with some great guidance and confidence instilled into him from working with some top class musicians and performers like Roger and Brian, It'll be tricky for sure but also has the potential for being a real success. Another concern would be the age difference related to creative ideas. Roger made it work with his son but then he is family :-)
