“American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert has revealed he “would love” to make an album of original material with legendary British rockers QUEEN.
QUEEN‘s Roger Taylor and Brian May joined forces with Lambert for a series of European dates, including two shows at London, England’s Hammersmith Apollo this week.
When asked during a live web chat with Capital FM if he would be interested in recording new material with QUEEN, Adam replied (see video below), “Yeah, I mean, I would love to work with them in any capacity in the future. I don’t think I would turn any offer down. I mean, they’re amazing. I don’t know what that would be, but hey…”
Lambert said last month that he knows that he can’t replace Freddie Mercury in his shows fronting QUEEN — but he doesn’t intend to let anyone down either. He told the Daily Mail that when he performs with the remaining members of QUEEN, he will learn from the experience.
He said, “We want to keep the music alive and give it an energy that would have made Freddie proud. You can’t replace him. But playing with QUEEN is the best thing that could happen to me. My intention is to pay tribute to Freddie. I’m looking forward to spending time with Brian and Roger. I want to make myself familiar with their more obscure songs and hear some stories from the guys themselves. I’ll get my own personal QUEEN documentary. Working with them is going to be a great honor, but I’m also very keen for people to hear my own music, so who knows what the future will hold?”
