Adam Lambert on how “daunting” it is to front Queen: “Freddie Mercury is one of the greatest singers that ever lived”


It’s nice to know that someone even as mega-talented as Adam Lambert can feel a little insecure sometimes.

Can’t say he doesn’t have plenty good reason though when it come to performing with rock band Queen and stepping into the shoes of the late, great Freddie Mercury.

Adam said at a recent news conference: “At first it was a little daunting when we did our first incarnation of this. I definitely felt apprehensive. Freddie Mercury is one of the greatest singers that ever lived, and he’s a big idol for me, and I thought to myself, you know I hope that the fans dig this, you know, because there is a possibility that they wouldn’t. And it felt really good. The reception was warm, the press reaction to it the first time was very warm.”

Original band members Roger Taylor and Brian May have full faith in Lambert with whom they are embarking on a summer North American tour..

“If you concentrate on the negative you’re not going to get anywhere. It’s very important to have your focus, and you play to people who want to hear us. Anyone that doesn’t want to hear us, thanks, goodbye. No problem,” said May.

Added Adam: “But you’re missing out because it’s going to be one helluva show.”

One Remark

  1. So often it is said that if a person doesn’t feel some anxiety before they start they aren’t normal. Not always the case, anxiety can grow after one goes on stage. I found that just dropping what ever you had to do to do and letting the atmosphere of the moment guide you-almost always was successful.

    Good luck to him as he takes this on.
