We are hearing rumblings of another possible collaboration between the remaining members of Queen and Adam Lambert. Supposedly, Queen guitarist Brian May informed MTV that “We are talking about doing something with Adam, probably for TV. He’s an amazing artist and a very nice guy. We keep in touch and have a good friendship. We’re not talking about touring yet, but we are talking about doing an event.”
Lambert, May and Roger Taylor have worked together in the past including a trio of sold-out shows at The Hammersmith Apollo in 2012.
May has been known to enjoy collaborations with other artists. He has mentioned wanting to work with Psy, the artist behind “Gangnam Style”, and worked with the star Meat Loaf for the third Bat Out Of Hell album. May provided his unique and recognizable guitar work on the song “Bad for Good.”
Lambert is just coming off of a performance in Pittsburgh which was associated with that city’s Pride festivities.
In the past, Lambert has expressed his concerns about filling the very large void left by the death of Freddie Mercury, the original frontman of Queen. Mercury passed away from complications related to AIDS back in 1991. One of the band’s hits “The Show Must Go On” was written by Brian May in relation to Mercury’s private battle with the disease.
Lambert’s fears were groundless, however, and he went on to be lauded for his performances with Queen. Many felt that Lambert’s style and vocal abilities were a perfect match to the group’s style.
Whether or not a collaboration between Lambert and Queen occurs has yet to be seen, but there are likely many people who would like to see them together again.
