Hi Queen Fans,
I was just wondering about what people here tend to think about Adam Lambert. I was initially very impressed with his voice on American Idol. I also thought that his version of “Ring of Fire” was original in a way that is quite rare for American Idol contestants, who tend to do everything in the same clichéd kind of way.

One of the things that I did not like was when Adam started talking a lot about Madonna and about how he was going to be produced by the same producer who works with Lady Gaga. I was kind of worried there, since I was hoping that he was going to go for rock music rather than pop.

Compared to most of the crap that is on MTV nowadays, I did not think that his debut album was bad. At the same time, I was hoping for something a little more. Actually, I was hoping for a lot more. Where were those flashes of genius that we saw so often in Freddie’s singing? To me, they just weren’t there.

Not that I don’t like Adam. I think that he is very sexy and that he is a lot more talented than 95% of the “artists” I hear on the radio. Maybe I was expecting too much of him. Furthermore, maybe he will get better with time in the way that Freddie did throughout the 1970s. We’ll see.

Is he related to Christopher Lambert..?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

But no, seriously. He was actually my pick out of the American Idol bunch. I liked his voice, and his style, and he was just generally a lot of fun to watch. I liked him straight up, from his audition, onwards, and was rather dissapointed when he didn't win.

I'll be keeping an eye on his stuff, and seeing what direction he actually goes in, however, before I make my mind up on the subject, period.

Someone needs to smack him in the face with a shovel.  Hopefully when he awakens, he'll have a fire under his arse and the will to use his instrument in music that's worth listening to.

Because at the moment his voice is totally wasted.  He is capable of so much more.  And it's depressing.

Not a lot. I really cannot be botherd with any guest acts performing with Queen. I would be more than happy to just have Brian and Rodger just work together with no other guest acts.

I followed him closely until he released his debut album, which greatly disappointed me. He has a terrific voice, but he is doing the same kind of mediocre stuff that someone could do with a mediocre voice, for the most part. I had great hopes up to that point that he might make an appearance with Brian and Roger and do something that at least was reminiscent of the sort of great songs he did on AI and professed to love performing, but now feel as though I have been victimized by the old bait-and-switch game. Still paying some attention in case he pulls his head out, but disenchanted....................

On the other hand, after listening to Adam's debut album, it feels so good to hear Queen again! ;o)

Personally I wouldn't want him in a a frontman. I don't think Bri and Rog will tour as Queen + again at this satge of their careers if they do then I would like Justin Hawkins to step in, talented frontman who's gone nowhere since the Darkness split and Hot Leg are ok but he should collaborate with the lads.

The only person who could front Queen credibly at this point is Myles Kennedy. He's the best English-language singer alive.

^^ Listen to this. Creed Mk. II(Alter Bridge) suck ass but some of their songs shine because of Myles Kennedy. He's a much better singer than Adam Lambert.

The dude from Highlander? He's pretty badass. Don't know why Queen fans would have strong feelings about him, though.

He is good but I fail to see that he has a better voice than Adam's, though it does go to prove that everyone DOES indeed think that his/her own fleas are gazelle's. It would be a pretty tall order for either one of them to follow in Freddie's footsteps.
