Adam Lambert’s Drummer – The One He’d Turn For (Maybe!) – Featured on This Week’s Late Night with Seth Meyers!

I was catching up on some video and up popped Monday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers (I love the monologues!). If you watch the show, then you know that most nights while the show’s original drummer Fred Armisen is absent, he has guest drummers filling in.

This week’s guest drummer is none other than Michel’Le (Mee-shell-lay) Baptiste, Adam Lambert’s drummer for the Velvet one-off shows he did in December and hopefully for the tour starting in April. She’ll be on the rest of this week so Adam will get some more publicity for Velvet in her introductions.

Because I love Seth, I won’t scold him too much for the 2 mistakes he made in Michel’Le’s introduction, which went like this. “…currently playing with singer/songwriter Adam Lambert, whose self-titled album is out now…” Okay, first, the album is titled Velvet. Come on dude! You’re holding the album photo that clearly says Velvet, LOL! And second, it’s not out until March 20th. But we love any promotion!

Now, are you wondering about the headline above? When Lila and I saw Adam’s El Rey Theatre Velvet show, while introducing the band, he said he was in love with the drummer, Michel’Le and he’d turn for her . . . maybe! Such a joker getting our fantasies running wild! Here’s the video I shot that night, that starts out with the band intro.

Carol About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)
