“You're on a roll there lol and you can say he can't sing rock all you like but there's lots of rock/metal dudes who love his voice and plenty say so after the QAL shows“

It sounds like you’re thinking of Alice Cooper and Dee Snider... of course they will play nice and say kind things about Adam. However, they know Adam isn’t a rock singer. Do they love Adam’s voice, or just think it’s great Brian and Roger “found something to do”????

“Then there are other kinds of rockers, Think Arrowsmith, ACDC. There are a ton of rock bands with singers who have lighter, really high voices”

Arrowsmith? LOL you must be a huge fan!

Neither Aerosmith or AC/DC have singers with light voices.

“they wanted a singer that could sing anything from their catalog.“

If you think about it, any vocalist can sing Queen’s catalogue, however will it sound great? Look at the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert.

I believe they chose Adam for his image. The outrageous clothes and crap. They thought hardcore Queen fans would dig it. I believe Adam’s sexuality played a role too. They wanted someone that’s flashy, but it’s almost as if he’s a parody of gay rock stars. Adam tries too hard with his sexuality. He tries to be cute and sexy, but he’s not. He’s a very confused man.

He's not in the least confused and they chose him for lots of reasons, he fits with the theatrical music Queen are known for, he's funny, camp has an ability to connect with an audience and has the voice to do the Queen catalogue in his own way and it works.

They're just two out of lots of musicians but there's also regular guys who from their profile love rock/metal music but have seen Queen and loved the show and rave about Adam. Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Sons of Apollo) said in answer to someone on his instagram "my honest opinion (and I told Adam this after the show), nobody can replace Freddie ... but Adam is absolutely the greatest insane vocals I've ever heard (literally!) ... so he is perfect for the gig"! He could just have said the show was great, didn't need to say anything specific about Adam but he also answered someone on twitter going on about Martel and said
"No doubt MM has an amazing voice which is uncannily similar to Freddie’s...but obviously @DrBrianMay & Roger weren’t looking for somebody to “replicate” Freddie (there’ll only ever be ONE FM) They could not have found a singer more talented than @adamlambert to front the band". Alice Cooper said his first thought when seeing Adam on Idol was he should sing for Queen, there was no reason to say that if he didn't mean it, no one was asking his opinion. Rob Halford called Adam his idol, Meat Loaf raved about him, Rick Savage wears a QAL T shirt in their gigs etc etc, they aren't all lying or being nice, they've no need to mention Adam specifically they could just say the show was great and leave it at that. Just because his voice isn't for you doesn't mean others don't like it. There's lots more who think he's perfect for Queen, end of the day it clearly works for lots of people but they'll never please everyone.

I really wonder why looney SC is posting those tweets every time. Truth is the song is the third huge commercial flop in a row. It sucks musically and noone gives a shit about the Ladyboy. Fact. No tweet will change that . His album will bomb big time as well as everyone with a sane mind predicted.


Because those tweets say what she can't. Plus it's all hyperbole that she posts.

Marc Bolan has been deceased for 42 years.



Why do you and some Glamberts like to say people are dead for so long 9ng. It's as if you like rubbing Queen fans faces in it. Bolan's music and legacy lives on.
You and AL will be lucky if he will be remembered 10 or even 5 years from now.

Unlike Freddie who was an original member of the band, Adam doesn’t move around much when Brian is playing one of his iconic solos. I believe it is out of respect and to give him the spotlight during those times. Wouldn’t you be really upset if Adam was on the opposite side of the stage purposely upstaging Brian or Roger? It was part of the act that when Brian was playing Freddie was running up a stairway or rolling on the floor or skipping across the stage! It wouldn’t be acceptable for Adam to do that mainly because he is not trying to be a Freddie clone.


Boy, now you are trying to say Freddie upstaged Brian. You seem offended by that. And you aren't even a Queen fan. You are just bitter because Freddie was and always will be better than AL. I guess that gets your goat.
It's not a good look for Glamberts when they come here ranting about Freddie. You and snifflese take the cake, and again it's obvious you and her aren't Queen fans, so I think you both are bitter and jealous of the Freddie legacy. And AL will never come close to that, even if he sang Queen songs for the rest of his life.

She is completely clueless. She even calls Lamebird Lambird. So Aerosmith is Arrowsmith for her. What a rock expert.

Has anyone noticed Adam’s last six singles have failed to chart?

He’s so popular and famous and such an innovative genius... where are those record buyers?

I bet none of them have an Adam Lambert record in their collection... aside from Meatloaf. That guy is a nutbag.

The sad part of Adam’s solo career is that Adam only has to go in, record his vocals, and then leave the studio. He could record an album every couple of weeks if he wanted to. Other people write his songs, he doesn’t play an instrument.

The reason for album delays record label problems, and why he’s currently on an independent record label running out of a random dude’s garage is because his music is a drain on finances. His last six singles, more money was spent on songwriters than the money earned from sales. His income is from Queen... he has no income from solo music.

To suggest Adam Lambert has the vocal style could front a metal band is truly, truly off the chart of delusion
