The pop-rock star who celebrated his 35th birthday this Sunday (by the way, happy birthday, Adam!) is currently working as a vocalist in the iconic rock band Queen. Lambert insists that he only does the vocals and there is no intention for him to take the front place and to play the role of Freddie Mercury, the legendary frontman of the band.
“At some point every night I talk to the audience about it, like, “I know. I’m not Freddie,” I’m not trying to replace him. It’s more a celebration of the legacy of the band – that’s the heart of the show,” the singer told Time magazine, “A handful of the songs in the set are absolutely ridiculous – high camp. Because the audience already loves the song, I know I can push it as far as I want. It’s the most liberating thing,” he explained. He also thanked the Queen musicians for pushing his own career forward for him to keep the popularity after taking part in the American Idol. Of course, Adam won’t replace Freddie. And nobody expects him to. Queen’s fans are just grateful to him for keeping their favourite songs alive.
