Adam Lambert Says He Won't Record New Music With Queen

Adam Lambert is throwing cold water on the idea of recording new material with Queen.

“People always ask if we want to record together,” the onetime American Idol runner-up admitted during a new interview with Hunger. “I’m not sure it makes total sense because it wouldn’t really be Queen, because to me Queen is Freddie [Mercury]."

Lambert went on to clarify that the live experience with Queen is what really brings him the most joy. “My favorite thing is collaborating and putting these concerts together and creating onstage -- it’s super fulfilling and exciting," he said. "To present these ideas to these two gentlemen -- especially when they like the idea!”
