Will Adam Lambert Front Queen?

Gene Simmons might not see Adam Lambert as a rocker, but his opinion isn’t shared by all. The members of Queen were so impressed with the American Idol finalist, they’ve even expressed interest in working with Lambert again. Maybe even on a permanent basis.

When asked about the frontman rumors, guitarist Brian May denied any job offers were made after last week’s season ender. But that doesn’t mean America hasn’t already seen the new Freddie Mercury. “Amongst all that furor, there wasn’t really a quiet moment to talk. But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point,” May revealed to Rolling Stone. “It’s not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn’t that easy. But I’d certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there.”

But how does Adam feel about this praise? Would he even be willing to accept that hypothetical offer?

“That’s a tough question because, honestly, how do you say no to being in Queen?” the 27-year-old told the Associated Press. “I mean, that’s unbelievable. But at the same time, I do have my own thing to do right now, and that’s my goal. So if I could, I would try to do both. That’s the honest question. I would try to do both. I would love to perform with them anytime they wanted me to but I also have my record to do. So, we’ll see.”

So what should expect to hear from Adam’s solo effort?

“My record will be kind of a rock-pop-electronic-dance thing,” he said. “I don’t know how to describe it. I think it’s gonna take on a life of its own, as far as genre goes.”
