Yesterday, Adam Lambert was interviewed On-Air with Ryan Seacrest and the nugget he slipped in at the end has lit Glambertville on fire!! The bulk of the interview focused on GLEE and his upcoming blow-your-mind performance at iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas . . . WITH QUEEN!!
But as Ryan was wrapping the interview up, Adam took control and burst out with a glitter bomb. No not a glitter bomb, A ROCK BOMB! He revealed the new direction his music was headed. “I’m writing music like a crazy person too!” When asked to elaborate, he said “I’m in love with rock and roll again.” He added, “This whole thing with Queen has been really inspiring. So I’m gonna kinda revisit my rock and roll roots a little bit, the things that made me want to audition for Idol in the first place. That’s been my inspiration.”
This is music to his diehard fans’ ears. Yes, we love whatever he sings, but many wish it was more rock oriented, rather than EDM. That may be in direct correlation with a large part of the group’s age. Yes, EDM is fun and we had a great time rocking out to the dance mixes at LambertLust’s Brass Rail party the night before Adam’s San Diego concert two weeks ago. But for whatever socio-political reasons we may want to blame it on, it didn’t make it onto the radio. The conservative-owned Clear Channel radio station empire is blamed a lot along with lack of radio and tour support from RCA. Hence Adam’s exit from RCA last week after he revealed RCA was only prepared to support him on an 80s cover album.
Adam is showing true signs of an artist-in-process. We see and hear every change he goes through, whether it’s in his music direction, career path (music, TV, etc.) and even his personal fashion statements. While every choice may not be your favorite, applaud the fact that he changes. Stagnation grows mold!
