Adam Lambert Could Become Queen’s New Front Man

We all saw Adam’s ease as a front man on American Idol…performing with Queen…and then Kiss!  Was this real?

And where did Adam best fit?  I can’t decide because I enjoyed both performances.  On second thought, I’ll give the edge to the Kiss performance because of Adam’s solo and because he didn’t have to share the stage with Kris Allen.  I digress.

But it seems that a pending offer from Queen is looming out there.  In the articles below it seems that guitarist Bryan May a drummer Roger Taylor aren’t “ruling out the possibility.”  May told Rolling Stone “I’d certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there.”

But alas, Adam has a summer tour and then other producers and management groups have “first dibs” on his initial projects.  It makes me want to scream, “Let him go!  Let him be creative!  Now!  PLEASE!”

Good things come to those who wait…isn’t that how the saying goes?  In the meantime, we have the memories of two spectacular performances.

 

 

Could Adam Lambert Become Queen’s New Front Man?

Mon May 25, 7:52 AM PDT

 If you thought Adam Lambert looked like a natural fit with iconic rockers Queen during American Idol’s finale, you weren’t the only one.

Hours after it was announced that Lambert was Season 8’s runner-up last week, widespread speculation began circulating that the 26-year-old singer had been offered a job as Queen’s new front man. While that’s not true yet, guitarist Brian May isn’t ruling out the possibility.

“Amongst all that furor, there wasn’t really a quiet moment to talk. But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point,” May told Rolling Stone. “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.”

Queen recently ended a four-year relationship with Paul Rodgers, who was handling the vocal duties for the band.

Lambert auditioned for Idol with Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and instantly became a buzzed-about contender for the show’s Top 36. His revved-up, glam-rock numbers and hauntingly restrained ballads made him the front-runner all season before ultimately coming up short. While the show has produced more pop artists than rockers, May recognizes that springboard it provides young artists.

For now, Lambert must first complete the 50-city tour with his fellow Top 10 members, and the Idol producers, 19 Entertainment, will likely have first dibs on anything Lambert does next. May said whatever happens, he’s excited to see what Lambert and Idol winner Kris Allen (who also shared the stage during “We Are the Champions”) do next.

“Both those boys are well worthy of big success,” May said. “So it’s pointless for someone like me to stand on the sidelines jeering. I’m confident Adam will make great use of this wonderful opportunity. I hope I’m there to see it.”

Adam Lambert To Collaborate With Queen?

“I’d certainly like to work with Adam” – Brian May

Now that Adam Lambert is free of the constraints of American Idol (relatively speaking, of course) he is now able to consider what his next step may be professionally. Surely, an album is in the works … but who might he be able to collaborate with on said new album? There has been much rumor going around that Adam was asked by the surviving members of Queen to front the band but Brian May tells Rolling Stone magazine that such talk is very premature. That said, May did not rule out a possible collaboration with the group — in fact, he’s hoping that Queen and Adam may be able to collaborate in some capacity:

“Amongst all that furor, there wasn’t really a quiet moment to talk,” May tells Rolling Stone in an e-mail interview.“ But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point. 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.” May, whose band recently ended a four-year-long partnership with singer Paul Rodgers, is comfortable with Idol as a launching point for the careers of rock singers. “You’d have to define ‘legitimate’ first,” he writes. “The long-term answer has to be that, if you have enough talent and enough will to succeed, you will get there by whatever route presents itself. Once you have scaled the castle walls, with the sword in your hand, it matters little
how you got there. I’ve not always been positive about shows like this, but there is no doubt that it offers a door to some real genuine talent along the way.”

From what I understand, Adam Lambert’s singing style is one that would mesh nicely with Queen’s music so it makes sense that folks would begin speculating that Adam (a hot new solo singer with a big voice) would hook-up with Queen (a band in need of a hot new solo singer with a big voice). It is quite a compliment to have Brian May talk of possible collaborations with you so I’m sure Lambert is flattered beyond belief. It’s still WAY TOO SOON to know what will come next for Adam Lambert. As I understand it, he still has a tour with American Idol to take care of before he can really focus on his next solo move. Still … the fact that anyone is even gossing that he might work with Queen makes him a winner in my eyes.

Who needs the title of American Idol when opportunities like this are falling in your lap?

      I agree, the best producer/writer in the world, DAVID FOSTER would be a great collaboration for Adam, he has worked with the greatest and the best in the business since the ’60s. I would love to see them get together to create great music for Adam. He’s already done Foster’s song The Prayer, which sounded so beautiful with his voice. What a dynamic duo that would be! David Foster where are you?

  6. omg i would absolutley would agree and if adam does join queen then i would pay 2 go c there concert everytime

  7. I loved Adam’s performance with Queen and of course also the Kiss performance. But I do think that he’s far too good to step inside an already exciting group that is already huge and sing their songs. He really should do his own stuff, make his own music and go solo. He’s impressive and amazing and doesn’t need anybody else. But of course no matter what he’ll do in the future, I bet it will be successful and whatever I’ll support him. 🙂

  8. We love Adam and he is ” The Idol winner” no matter what the votes said. There is no comparison. Adam has the whole package and he will be a superstar. Sorry Kris, Adam is going to soar like an eagle. My husband and myself are in our 60’s so you can see that he appeals to all. I think Adam is the most exciting entertainer that has graced us in a long time. Good luck Adam, your life has changed forever. Fame is tough, just stay true to yourself. You can name your own ticket.

  9. Yes I would also go to a concert to see Adam perform and I will be buying his music. Like I said he is the most exciting entertainer to come along in a long time. He can do it all, he is brilliant. All I can say is WOW and we wish him the best. What came from Idol? A star was born by the name of Adam Lambert.

  10. This is fantastic! I think Adam should join Queen; his voice would be well-suited in an equally talented band. And I know Adam claims his genre as pop, really… rock suits him more. He could do covers and collaborations from heavy metal (Kiss, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath)… The Pop scene is washed out and tainted by false artists. If he does get into it; he should revert the whole entire genre.

  11. Adam would be Amazing in Queen, but I also would rather see him to do his own thing..however if by chance he wanted to collaborate with someone, I would love to see him replace Robert Plant, so Led Zeppelin can have their final tour, that fans have been begging for. Adam is the only person I have ever heard that could equal or top one of the “hammers of the gods”. Another idea that Adam would be brilliant in, A starring role in a show like Twilight, Adam would be the most perfect , sexy, vampire.. No offense to the current guy..but if they had only waited a little longer…
    No matter what Adam does, we fans will love and support him!
