Adam Lambert - Adam Lambert Wants Queen Album

Adam Lambert wants to make an album with Queen.

The former 'American Idol' contestant has been singing with the group live in place of the late Freddie Mercury this summer, and is keen to record new material with original members Brian May and Roger Taylor.

When asked by UK radio station Capital FM if he would make a record with the group, he said: ''Yeah, I mean, I would love to work with them in any capacity in the future. I don't think I would turn any offer down.

''I mean, they're amazing! I don't know what it would be, but hey!''

Original Queen singer Freddie passed away in November 1991, and bass player John Deacon retired in 1997, but the band have continued, performing with singer Paul Rodgers between 2004 and 2009 and more recently Adam, after they played backing him in the final of 'American Idol' in 2009.

Last night (12.07.12) Queen and Adam played the second of three shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo venue, performing classic tracks including 'Under Pressure', 'I Want to Break Free', 'Another one Bites the Dust' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Adam, drummer Roger and guitarist Brian all took turns to sing lead vocals and at a few points Freddie appeared on screen and sang, accompanying the band through archive footage. The band will play at the venue again tomorrow (14.07.12), their last scheduled show at this time.

Though no one can replace Freddy Mercury, Adam Lambert is most definitely a perfect fit for Queen. Vocally fantastic! Even Freddy would approve. Always felt bad for Queen. So unique, so much talent and so many hits. Unlike other classic rock bands (Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, U2 etc.) they were left behind when key member Freddy died. Lambert has breathed new life into them. Would love to see them record new material together and see a tour of Queen w/Lambert in the U.S. Would also love to see them as Super Bowl performers. No one deserves it more than Queen.
