Adamlambertqueen_l3It’s been less than two weeks since we pondered the possibility of American Idol‘s Adam Lambert taking over Freddie Mercury’s duties as Queen’s lead singer. Then came his performance of “We Are The Champions” on the show. Now our rock & roll fantasy might actually become a reality. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Queen’s Brian May says that while there is nothing set in stone, he and drummer Roger Taylor “are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point.” May went on to say that “I’d certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there.” OK, so it’s not a definitive yes, but it certainly seems like things are heading in the right direction. Or should Lambert just go his own way? I mean, the guy has the goods to make his own name in rock (Daughtry, anyone?). What do you think, Music Mixers? Should Adam Lambert join an already established band like Queen, or just start fresh?
