Queen: Freddie Would Love/Hate Adam Lambert

Brian May says Queen singer Freddie Mercury would be jealous of his current replacement, Adam Lambert.

In the book Queen in 3-D, the guitarist writes that Freddie would recognize what a good singer Lambert is.

“Freddie would love and hate him, yeah; I mean, you know, he’d be like, ‘You bastard!’ Because Adam has a real gift from God. That voice is a voice in a billion, and nobody has that range, nobody that I’ve ever worked with." May adds, "I’ve seen Adam develop, just like I watched Freddie develop… He’s so free with his interpretations, and it’s spine-chilling, just the sound he makes and the way he interprets a song."

While Lambert "in no sense imitates Freddie," May credits his ability to "provide that piece of the jigsaw puzzle, which is, I mean, stupendous. We would never be doing this now if it weren’t for Adam."

Queen with Adam Lambert open their Las Vegas residency at the Park Theater tomorrow (Saturday) night.
