SCMP: Queen’s Brian May on Adam Lambert and story behind Bohemian Rhapsody

Over the course of their career, rock legends Queen have sold more than 150 million albums – one of them, Greatest Hits (1981), the biggest-selling album in UK history.
They have had 18 number-one albums and 18 number-one singles – several of them fixed in rock’s firmament, such as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You and We Are the Champions.
And they’ve earned a reputation as the most incendiary live band in history, responsible for arguably the most memorable live performance ever when they upstaged the whole of musical royalty at 1985’s Live Aid.
But one thing they’ve never done is play in Hong Kong – a tiny gap in their accomplished CV that will finally be filled in on September 28, when they perform at AsiaWorld-Expo, Lantau, as part of an Asian tour that also includes Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, Bangkok and Shanghai. That last gig will also be their first in China.

Fascinating article. Everything we learn about Queen's history adds to the experience of seeing Brian and Roger perform live. They've been through so much joy and so much sadness. Many ups and downs. But they are true rock legends. And Adam will always be a part of that now.

BTW, just read that an Israeli news source that Adam is going to perform on AMERICAN HORROR STORY SEASON 6. Shosh was asked to confirm this, but no answer from her yet. HOPE IT'S TRUE! That show is perfect for him! Big names have been on it, including Gaga. Adam needs to break into the acting world. I think he's got lots to offer. PRAY THAT IT'S TRUE!!!

Dee R. Gee.... about Adam "breaking into the acting world".... be careful what you wish for. I've often thought it would be great for Adam... still do.

But, at the back of my mind is the nagging thought that Adam COULD enter the acting world.... and be so successful that he could possibly leave the music world behind. It probably wouldn't, but it could happen. That's scary.

Then what would we Glamberts do for our Adam "fix"-- i.e., new music, tours, concerts, etc.?

Dee R Gee said...

Like other singers, I think he could handle doing both. Like Justin Timberlake or Madonna. I'm sure there are others I just can't think of off the top of my head. Maintaining the music/singer cycle of WRITE, RECORD, PROMOTE, SELL, TOUR, REPEAT is very tough over the long haul. I love to see him diversify if he can.

Just read the Twitter reply from Shosh about the American Horror Story rumor. Not true. Damn.

The "Adam on American Horror Story" rumors have been floating around for months... Mostly fan speculation.. Guessing the article out of Israel that was apparently the source of today's rumor may have picked up some old fan blog mention about it and ran with it...

And about Adam eventually pursuing an acting career, at least part time... He's said he would like to do that (TV, films, etc..and a Broadway show or two if the part and show is right for him): He could certainly do that.. More than a few singers have acted (and actors have become singers..), as @Dee R Gee said above.. Another singer who has also had GREAT success in both areas, music and acting, is Jared Leto. Lead singer in the band "Thirty Seconds To Mars" and Oscar/Golden Globe/Screen Actors Guild Best Supporting Actor winner in "The Dallas Buyers Club", among other film roles..

I do think the sky's the limit for Adam... So much talent. I'm so thankful to "know" Adam and love being his fan... Because we never know what's happening next!!! So excited to find out.........................
