BBC: American Idol: Queen played effectively and.. did you discover a replacement for Freddie Mercury during this show? there were a lot of speculations about one of the contestants.
Roger Taylor, Queen: Well, you are very well informed. No, we didn’t discover a replacement for Freddie , never we could do that. We did play in the finale of American Idol with the two final guys, one of whom is called Adam BOLTON (SIC!). He didn’t actually win, he only got 49 millions of votes, I think but he is one of the most phenomenal singers and I think at some point in the future we’d love to – Brian and I (who are basically Queen – you know.. what’s left) would like to do something with him maybe. It may happen – we might do something with him in the future. He is phenomenally talented. He has one of the greatest voices I’ve ever heard.
