Adam Lambert wants to make an album with Queen after stepping into the late Freddie Mercury's shoes on their European tour
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.
