...the artist.

But any collaborator with Queen *can* be replaced. Including Adam Lambert. It happened with Paul Rodgers. That's just the nature of the game. It's neither Adam's fault, nor is it Brian or Roger's. The void filled by Freddie made it this way.

Discuss.

Next year you can see Marc Martel in Queen Extravaganza but it won’t be with Brian and Roger!

I wonder if Lambert has ever been asked " how long does he plan to tour with Queen"? Ha.

Like it or not. I believe he's going to be recording with the guys. I think it'll be cool. It'll allow for some of Brian's songwriting to come forth and some of Roger's input (*LET'S HOPE) to prevent it from being stale.



I wish John would pick up his bass again for something even if it's recording with another artist. He's such an amazingly melodic bass player. Seems like a genuine guy as well.

I guess it's that time to try to shake up the Glamberts....but really. I don't think they're leaving the Adam Lambert train.

He did well this last tour. I just wish they kept the NOTW songs in the list

I agree with most of what's written here. Q+AL is good for what it is, and that's about it. To make comparisons between them and the original band is fruitless; Freddie (and Jagger, Plant, Axl, et al.) was one of a kind and I can't think of many lead vocalists who can be judged against his overall showmanship. Adam couldn't even shine his shoes in that regard; leading a rock group, he's got the charisma of a damp rag. But I concede that he is fine at what he does, as was Paul Rodgers. May not be everyone's cup of tea, but you can't please everyone.

What I don't understand is the need to bring up QEX in here. People see QEX to see QEX, not Queen or Queen + AL. Same thing with Queen + AL -- I wouldn't have paid the cold hard cash I earned to see them if I thought they are some kind of lousy tribute band (and I have seen them live twice). I'd go to see QEX if I wanted to hear a singer that was more capable of singing these songs live than most others, Adam included. But to compare the two is unnecessary, no?

^no.

OP's valid point is that at some avenue. ..QEX is basically better than the real remainder

Especially if they're trudging the same worn setlist.

People like me go to see Brian May and Roger Taylor. ...the ROCK STARS. ...not the safety of a selected easy performance.

Rock and roll means warts..playing something pff the cuff.

Doesn't happen much in this situation so if you want to see old novelty. ..why not see qex

Interesting discussion. Even though OP is technically right that Adam is replaceable as a collaborator of Queen, I don't think it is going to happen. Not at this point and B & R have already said so. Unfortunately, Brian is 70 and Roger is 68 now and it took them about 20 years to find two people they were willing to play with, whom they think can do the songs justice.

Even though, Adam is not technically a part of Queen, they have been treating him as family. The guys seem to love and respect each other as people. They also seem to have a lot of fun together. I think QAL is pretty much the epilogue of Queen's story. And I am also afraid that this might be their last tour.

I am hoping some of you are right and that we end up having a QAL album or at the least a single. Brian and Roger are so talented as songwriters that I think it is a real shame that they have not written as Queen since TCR. It would be very interesting to see what QAL could come up with.

GrowUpGlamberts: I agree with you that Freddie was a once in a lifetime type of artist, very commanding and charismatic on stage. Adam has a different type of charisma. He has more of a witty, friendly, approachable vibe...They are men of different times. To each their own I guess.

Who among the new generation of rock stars, do you think has charisma?

I think Brian is very hesitant about recording with AL.

Brian is very hesitant about getting up in the morning let alone recording with AL.

Caroline simple Question

Are you capable of interacting on the the same level as other people and actually contributing to a discussion?

Caroline go and listen to Diamanda Galas, her
vocal range makes Lambert sound like a donkey, in both lower and higher range she far exceeds what he can do. Holding long notes, mark of a true singer is it? Oh and she can play the piano really quite well with a unique style, that's a musical instrument you know? Something Adam has no concept of.

Even those of us who thought Lambert was a good choice or were willing to give him a chance have probably had enough of him because of your relentlessly stupid posts

Why is it stupid to brag about Adam’s magnificent talent? Is that lady YOU brag about going to replace Adam on the next leg of the Queen tour?
