Wow! Great to hear....QAL is going strong! Can't wait to see the coming summer tour! So excited. Evidentally it will be very different from the earlier N.A. tour...so curious about that..

I hope (expect) that they will sell-out every venue...here and overseas.

Its sad that Adam isn't recording anything in studio with Queen

Mirela Gheorghiu said...

NickAckley and I are very disappointed that the Queen does not record an album with Adam. I do not know why Brian May prefer to register with Kerry Ellis. I do not think she has Adam's vocal abilities. Personally I do not like the new album Brian-Kerry.

Dee R Gee said...

I understand that Kerry and Brian have been friends for years and have collaborated many times. They do not record "Queen-type" music, but they apparently have success with their projects and enjoy working together. It has nothing to do with Adam at all. It's a big leap for Brian and Roger to record new music with Adam. Queen's legacy is enormous. It's sacred ground to millions. I know they recorded new music with Paul Rodgers, but they don't seem eager to repeat that sort of thing. At least not now. Adam is a whole different entity for them. They may just change their minds!

Adam a brought something new and fresh songs of Queen and get connected to new generation.I think this needs to reinvent itself every band did not live in the past.Many Queen fans like very much Adam and I think some new records Q + AL would be very successful. I was a fan of Freddie but now I like more the voice of Adam.

Nanbert said...

Agreed, Dee R Gee....I think they are especially reticent because the new album they recorded with Paul Rogers was pretty much a fizzle...but their tour together was not wildly successful either.

As you say..."Adam is a whole different entity". They have had very successful tours together, and more and more people have accepted...and love...Adam....and why not? Time will tell... Maybe their song-writing "juices" aren't flowing as strongly as in the "old days".

Actually, but most unlikely, I would LOVE them to record "Queen and Adam Lambert" music from their tours together ---that has become a huge part of both Queen's and Adam's legacy... and in fact, is the only "pairing" that most people have seen these days.

The Freddie "purists" will complain, but they complain anyway. But the rest of us will be euphoric! Why be insistent on "NEW" Music, when the current repetroire is so monumental!

Last, but not least, I HAVE MY HEART SET on them offering the DVD from the Tokyo "SummerSonic" in their merchandise on this summer tour! Oh my!

fluttsp said...

I could be wrong but I'm sure Adam "purists" would complain vehemently if another artist toured the world singing Adam's songs & recorded an album of Adam's songs, whether Adam were alive or not.

Nanbert said...

Yes, but these are "Queen" songs, not Freddie's songs...although he wrote some of them. But, in fact, ALL the members of Queen wrote some of the songs, and certainly ALL of them collaborated on the arrangements.

Every artist does "covers" from time to time in any case. In fact, it used to be much more common earlier than it is now...with artists even recording "covers" on their albums. For example, Elvis recorded "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen.

Also, many avid fans of Queen and Adam Lambert have never seen or heard Freddie...and would not be likely to buy a Queen album with Freddie...but would be delighted to be able to purchase a "Queen and Adam Lambert" album....labeled as such.

QAL is an entire reincarnation of Queen, and deserves to be preserved as part of Queen's legacy...and Adam's. It can't be allowed to just disappear forever when they stop touring!...as if they never existed! That would be a sacrilege!

fluttsp said...

I think you're missing the point I made. You're seeing it from your desire to have Queen & Adam record together & record songs that the Queen band - Freddie, Brian, Roger & John - have recorded together.

And you'd be happy if another artist toured the world singing ADAM's songs & recorded an album of ADAM's SONGS, whether Adam were alive or deceased? I think Glamberts worldwide would be ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGED!!!

Nanbert said...

Fluttsp....Of course I see your point....I might be irritated, I agree. But, that music will be copyrighted material for at least several years. And Adam could give his permission if he chose...or refuse. Either way, it's his right....his choice...or his heirs. And I have the choice of buying or not buying that album...that's all. No big deal.

But, in truth, that would be of an individual's original music, i.e. Adam's OWN music.....not the music of a GROUP in which ALL share credit and control. If the remaining members of that group wish to record their songs with Adam (with John's permission, too, of course) that is their right. It's THEIR music... Freddie is dead. The music is NOT... nor are they.

Many people play... and even record... Queen music all the time. Also, people play... and even record... music by other people all the time. It's alive!

The music world would be poor indeed if music could not be played or recorded after the original artist died. The proof of a really great song is how many people wish to perform it!

Think of all the great music we hear every day that has been sung or played....or recorded.... by untold numbers of artists.

Even Adam's album "Playlist: The Very Best of Adam Lambert" includes his covers of at least 5 sings that were not his own! And he also recorded all the songs he sang on Idol.

Sorry, didn't mean to be so long-winded. But finally, I have to say that it would be a very stupid artist who tried to duplicate Adam's album ... and compete with HIS voice!


fluttsp said...

I prefer to listen to ORIGINAL ARTISTS sing, NOT covers, whether the covers are similar or varied.

I listen to covers occasionally ... some are OK & others not good at all (imo).

To each his/her own.

I'm looking forward to hearing Adam's new solo album.

Nanbert said...











How do you feel about the "covers" Adam sang on American Idol? Do you prefer their original artists?...some or all?

Good music is good music... there are many ways to interpret it ... many ears to hear it... many hearts to feel it. It nevers dies, but keeps evolving... what touches you may leave me cold, and vice-versa.

Adam's voice is what resonates with me over all others. Whatever he sings becomes my favorite rendition. Anyone who sings or plays his music might flatter him, but could
not capture me.

I can't explain it -- Adam's voice somehow causes my inner "tuning fork" to vibrate! I am baffled by the phenomenon.....but there it is!

I can think of a "zillion" songs I would love to have an album of Adam covering....all my favorite music sung by my favorite voice.. Adam's..a recurring dream of mine!

I love Queen's music...but, frankly, not Freddie's voice. Queen's music with Adam's voice is PERFECT! IMO. Why not want it memorialized in an album for our enjoyment...and their musical legacy? I know I'm not alone.

But as you say... quite rightly...to each his/her own.





fluttsp said...

Obviously you never saw Queen perform when Freddie was alive. He was absolutely incredible. The YouTube clips simply don't do him justice.

Personally, I prefer Freddie singing Queen's songs & Adam singing Adam's songs but vive la difference. If we all liked the same singer & the same songs, the world of music would be a boring place.

Nanbert said...

No, you're right...I never saw Queen with Freddie live, but I've seen dozens of their performances on Youtube, and heard a lot on radio back in their heyday...and my youth. Yes, Freddie was a great frontman...but IMO he did not have the warmth and humor that Adam brings to the stage. And, again, I never was fond of his voice... long before Adam ever turned up on the scene.

But, that's what makes the world go around....Che sera, sera. Your "tuning fork" differs from mine....your preferences are every bit as good and valid as mine...just different.
Vive la difference.

Have a good one, fluttsp!
