QUEEN's BRIAN MAY Says ADAM LAMBERT "Can Do More" Than FREDDIE MERCURY
Current Queen touring singer Adam Lambert received a rousing endorsement from legendary guitarist and co-founder Brian May.
In an interview with GuitarWorld, Brian said the American Idol runner-up is the perfect guy to take over Freddie's unenviable role of leading Queen, despite what some fans think. He even said the American Idol alum can do more than Fred. "Adam can do all the stuff that Freddie did and more. It doesn’t matter what you throw at Adam — he can do it..." Wow! That says a lot.
Brian also added that Adam is his own man and is far from being a Freddie copycat. "He’s a born exhibitionist. He’s not Freddie, and he’s not pretending to be him, but he has a parallel set of equipment."
