Adam Lambert has officially joined Queen. Adam said, “The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some fucking great songs. It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would’ve been proud of. The way I’m choosing to view it is that it’s a great honor and one I’m in no way going to shirk.”
No one will take Freddie Mercury’s place, but if there is anyone that can come close to Freddie’s theatrics, it’s Adam. Good move, Adam…and good move, Queen. I wonder what the age gap is between Adam and the rest of the band? He was barely a fetus when Queen was in their prime.
**UPDATE**Nothing has been set in stone. A rep for Queen’s label said, “The Daily Star item only mentions that Adam may perform with Queen at Sonisphere. This is not confirmed. Nothing has been signed. However, if this were to happen, Queen would be returning to the setting of their final concert with Freddie Mercury, which took place in 1986.”
