Adam Lambert and Queen could team up again soon if fans get their way. Rumors are circulating that the band could take the American Idol runner-up as their new lead singer. The question is if this is what fans want, or whether Lambert wants to carve out his own niche.
Queen guitarist Brian May talked with Rolling Stone about the possibilities of Lambert becoming their new frontman, which would mean filling Freddie Mercury’s ginormous shoes. He stated that nothing had been finalized, but that they had a meaningful conversation about the possibility of this happening.
Queen was huge in the 1970’s and 1980’s, and since Mercury passed away in 1991 they have never taken on a permanent lead singer. Can you imagine Adam singing Bohemian Rhapsody, We are the Champions, We Will Rock You and Fat Bottomed Girls? Well, maybe not the last one.
