^^^ Unless health dictates I doubt they'll stop completely - might take a bit of a break and then do some smaller one off events here and there but I can't see them stopping completely they're having too much fun.

I disagree, he won't have the solo success of someone like Taylor Swift et al but he's doing fine as an indie artist, there's tons of them out there with a fan base who want to see them who get to tour all the time without having billboard hits and Adam has the advantage of being someone who gets asked to appear at lots of events so he'll always be high profile and on TV for one thing or another. He's already said ages ago he's interested in other things besides music so there's plenty things he can do that doesn't involve vying for chart positions.

As to the AMA's he's left that behind long since, he's been on that network numerous times and no one cares anymore about that, he may have lost some potential fans from it but then they probably weren't the kind of fans he'd have kept anyway, they'd have found something else to go off him for if he hadn't done that. There's no TV stations or Networks that would balk at having him on now he's proved he can be trusted to be appropriate for whatever audience the show is aimed at so there's no long term damage that way.

How can you say he’s doing fine as an indie artist? He spent way more on promotion for his EP than what he made from selling it.

He could do loads better, and he knows that for sure. Adam’s a popular man, but people aren’t buying his music.

Just because you’re indie, doesn’t mean you can’t create a hit. He has many followers on all his social media pages. Where were they after Adam released his EP and singles?

You have no idea what he's spent and he's sold plenty of copies, they're still being shipped as there was a delay (lots of indie artists have had the same issue with getting copies out on time), I've seen tons of people commenting that they're still waiting for copies and some have even bought from Amazon while waiting as they got them straight away so clearly more people have bought them than you think. Just because an artist isn't on billboard doesn't automatically mean their music doesn't sell, if the EP had been sold and shipped to everyone who bought a copy at the right time he likely would have been higher but it didn't work out that way. Regardless he's doing fine and there's still side B to put out yet when the whole album will be released as one and done on vinyl. You claim to know all about the industry yet seem to know little about how it works currently when artists make more money from tours and merch than from albums and streaming numbers. What exactly do you think all the artists touring who never have billboard hits are doing? Are they not successful? Does no one buy any of their music or bother seeing them in concert? Artists are having to diversify and think of new ways of doing things, Adam's done that and he's doing fine as he is, he doesn't need to be at the top of the charts to have a good career.

Freddie said he didn’t care what you do about him after he is gone only don’t make him boring! Brian, Roger and Spike got excited over Adam because they knew he would never make Freddie’s music boring!


Huh? Did Brian, Roger and Spike ever say that, I don't think they did. It's you just bigging him up as your usual. You'd say anything to promote AL, even using Freddie's own words and what you think he'd like to suit your needs and wants for AL.


Which is why you've never seen the recent documentary they've made. It's rather good and believe me it's not all about Adam Lambert, they cover the whole 90s including John in the band. You need to watch it so you get your facts right.


I've actually watched it when it aired on ABC. I don't remember everything that was said in it. Basically, it's hype about AL, and there are better Queen and Freddie documentaries out there.

AL should be grateful for Freddie's and Queen's legacy, it's filled his pockets more than his own career.


Sad but true. I did have high hopes for Lambert, had a lot of potential. EDM and that awards show killed any momentum for a solo career after idol.



I think his focus and time has been for Q+AL more than his own career.

For crying out loud, once an album is bought online, it’s sold. Billboard does not request deliveries.

That’s how big artists chart so well sometimes... pre-sales.

““What exactly do you think all the artists touring who never have billboard hits are doing?””

Make their money singing other people’s songs, or get jobs at factories.

“”You claim to know all about the industry yet seem to know little about how it works currently when artists make more money from tours and merch than from albums””

You think no one makes money from selling music, yet there’s at least 100 artists who sold better than Adam when he released his music.

Aren’t you the one who thought music artists mime along to their tracks, instead of singing along, while filming a music video? (Before you make a ridiculous claim that Adam mimes his lines instead of singing along, please provide a video or audio clip of him saying such).

Even Ozzie's latest dirge is better than Lambert's latest elevator muzak.

Yep, Adam should have sold many copies, but the music is terrible, the lyrics are crap, and the production is so awful that not even his Queen connections could sell his work. I’m sure he’s depressed about it and each night he takes it out on a new guy, hopefully cheap. He needs to reserve the funds.

I feel sorry for him sometimes... obviously his management doesn’t care and just let him go in any poor direction he decides. He’s obviously not musically inclined, or he’d know when he has a great song in his hands. Someone in the industry needs to step him aside and give him a good talking to, I’m surprised Brian and Roger haven’t.

It’s like expecting a nice new release of songs, and all you get is bottom of the barrel filler. “My supah pow-wah” really? No one likes the chorus, it sounds completely stupid, it ruined the song for any hope of sales, yet he keeps trying to promote it. That section of the song was the nail in the coffin, I thought it had potential until that line.

Honestly, Adam doesn’t even have enough super power to sell more than 6,000 copies of the EP, despite having 50,000+ likes on his Instagram posts... millions of followers... even his fans think the music sucks.

Those cheap music videos, the stupid bouncing car, and his latest decision to constantly stick his chin out, in a snobby way, doesn’t help. His stage moves, if you can call them that, are sloppy. His music, he thought, would put him right at the front again. I feel bad for him, it’s his worst offering. On the other hand, he’s an idiot enough to think it’s actually great music. It’s talentless, disposable, muck.

Ouch LOL.
I like the Ozzy song, but it's far from his best.

I think the "crush" goes to you and your feelings about AL.
You know when I first started to read your posts on QOL, I thought you were a preteen. Boy, I was wrong to say the least.

Mr. Cosmic, in case you missed it — these are not all covers. The songs that are covers are performed very differently from the originals.

Best live vocals (a small sample):

I think SweetDelusional really thinks she has a shot to evangelically convert Cosmic into a Glambert.

Unbelievable ...

I'm sure AL still would be singing covers after Q+AL is over, as he's known for singing covers more than anything else.
Would you rather he be known for his own music? I would.
That song and live video you posted is honestly awful. I can't be what you post to try to big up AL, and on Queen boards...that performance there is just crap.
