After Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991 and the departure of Paul Rodger in 2009, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor had been searching for a star to front Queen and with Adam Lamberts attention grabbing performances on American Idol, there seemed no better person to fill the slot.
Queen first worked with Adam Lambert during the penultimate episode of American Idol in 2009 and more recently at November’s MTV Europe music awards, Lambert will front the band when they play a string of UK dates this summer. He has also recently scored a solo No.1 album in the US.
"We're really excited about it," Taylor says. "Adam... of course he has this unbelievable range, like Freddie (Mercury) had range. Adam can really cover it. He's an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality."
Ahead of the band's live return to the UK - with their new frontman, check out quotes from Lambert and Queen on their newfound working relationship and see the new group's history together...

Koululainen Magazine Finland June 2012 Issue (Pre-Teen, Ages 7 - 12 ) Translation by moominbert Article in Koululainen magazine 6/2012
Adam Lambert was exhausted, so the first songs he wrote were angry. Love brought a note of happiness to his songs. These days, the trendsetter is making music about finding the right one.
Musician Adam Lambert comes across as very likable. The artist, who turned 30 at the end of January, is full of energy even after the sun has set on a long day of interviews. His outlook on life, as well as his style, has changed over the past couple of years. - My style was much more outrageous, I'd accessorize with rhinestones and feathers. I was influenced by the showy glam rock style of the 1970s. These days, I prefer a more classic look. I wear more designer outfits and less Las Vegas style show costumes, Adam (who is wearing all black) tells us at the SLS hotel in Los Angeles. The American Idol season 8 finalist names Madonna, 53, and the late Michael Jackson as his role models. - They were the queen and king of pop when I was growing up. They both wore the same amount of makeup, and they had great costumes. Their music videos were theatrical, they were like movies. I want to create unforgettable experiences the way they did.
I was ready for true love
Adam's second album, Trespassing, contains a lot of dance music and offers a glimpse into his life, both the good and the bad sides. At first, the music he wrote was angry. - I started writing the songs while I was on a world tour. I was exhausted, and normal life seemed distant and strange. I was depressed when I got back home. I had gotten distanced from my friends and I felt lonely. When Adam's relationship with his Finnish life partner, tv personality Sauli Koskinen, 27, was established, the lyrics he wrote became happier. - I met Sauli in November of 2010 when I had a show in Finland. He visited me in Los Angeles a few times before moving in with me. I was happy, and you can hear that in the songs. I wrote songs about love and about finding the right one, he says. - I was ready for true love, and it's full of beauty and joy. Sometimes I feel like I can't live without my other half. He keeps my feet on the ground even when I'm flying high. Sometimes it feels like he knows me better than I know myself. The couple enjoys spending their free time in their home on the Hollywood hills. - We go walking or running, and we have a gym at home. We like to watch tv and movies and cook together. I like Finnish food and culture, but I don't care for salmiakki.
Fame is a hard currency
Adam started acting when he was a teenager in his hometown, San Diego. After high school, he went to college for five weeks. - I've been on the stage since I was 10. I don't know what else I could do. My dad, a project manager, taught me to be ambitious and to reach for my goals, but also to be practical. My mother, a warm-hearted interior designer, has always been there for me. Adam performed on a cruise ship with the Anita Mann group when he was 19. The gig lasted ten months and brought him to Finland for the first time. His career continued on to musical theater when he moved to Los Angeles around age twenty. A couple of years later, he traveled around Europe for six months with a production of Hair. - Lots of auditioning has left me with a thick skin. I've been rejected more times than I've been hired. My parents used to send me money when my bank account was empty. They're relieved that I can make a living now. Adam's global success story began with American Idol in 2009 and continued with his first album, For Your Entertainment. These days, his finances are more secure. - I used to live in a studio apartment, now I have a three-story house. I have more opportunities, less time to sleep, better clothes, I get better service in restaurants, and people pay a lot more attention to me than they used to. I get gifts and I have a team that takes care of how I look. Fame is a hard currency. I'm not proud of it, but that's how the business works.
Adam is also familiar with judgmentalism, indifference and injustice. - I'm different, I'm an outsider, and not everybody accepts me because of that. When I'm feeling down, I worry and overanalyze. I get self-critical and I'm hard on myself. Finding a balance is a challenge. On dark days, he reminds himself of how well things are going for him. - I'm lucky. My work has opened up opportunities that very few people get. I have people who support me and love me. It's up to me whether I choose to focus on the positive or the negative, and even though I don't always succeed, I try to choose to have a sunny outlook on life. I want to grow as a human being and as an artist. I'm always ready for new experiences and challenges. Adam is interested in philosophy and astrology, and he believes in both karma and energy. - A positive energy creates well-being and success, a negative energy drives you towards depression. I've experienced karma, too. When I've gossiped about someone, someone else has spread gossip about me. Or the person I've gossiped about has found out and been upset.
This album made its debut in the number one spot on the Billboard 200 album chart, making Lambert the first openly gay artist to attain this position.
05 June 2012 | LEIGN HUNTER 7/10 ADAM LAMBERT – TRESPASSING (RCA)
Lambert does a good job of offering a mix of both rockier sounds with spunky tracks like Take Back, Never Close Our Eyes and Cuckoo, and takes the tempo down a notch with tracks like Nirvana, revealing his versatility and range as an artist.
There’s something different about his sound, which makes it stand out from the run of the mill music out there.
His powerful tenor voice, with its multi-octave range, is very engaging and tracks like Trespassing have an almost Eighties feel. Each track has a distinctive mood.
This is music you will want to jam to with the top down.
This is an album that is certain to lift your mood and get your toes tapping. – LH
