San Jose Mercury
This would be an interesting arrangement ..
Chris Daughtry turned down an offer from "Fuel" to be their frontman, but I can see Adam saying yes.
Seems like a great fit! His solos in We Are The Champions the other night were a home-run, IMO.
Hmmm. Given my comment before in the Finale thread this does not surprise me. I think he would make a good choice. I for sure would buy an album of Adam singing Queen songs with Queen. Good fit in my opinion, but I can also see Adam turning it down.
Interesting. After watching him sing with Queen last week I thought the same thing. He'd be great.
Some of us saw the Freddie in him a long time ago. No big surprise at all.
I can see Adam as a front-man, but I have always seen him more as an independent artist. The other thing is does he really want to covers and be compared to Freddie all the time? Or does he want to do original music?
I think Adam needs to be in a band like Queen (or Aerosmith, or KISS) .. Queen would be an interesting choice as he could extend the life of the band as the older members bow out. No reason why there couldn't be new Queen songs.
So Queen would be the new Menudo, eh?
Actually, that could work quite well. Bring old fans back to hear Queen songs with a Lambert twist, and introduce new fans who followed Lambert from Idol to the Queen archive.
Excellent point, Drew, but there you have it. Some things are unavoidable. I doesn't help that Adam has, by his own accord, adopted the Freddie style. You can't help but compare them.
I'd never listen to him doing Queen's vocals.
He lacks the range and richness voice that Freddie had.
He's too shrill.
Personally, I think he'd fit right in ...
Did you not hear his solos in We Are The Champions on the final night?
Arnel Pineda has fit in quite nicely with Journey. Adam could do the same with Queen.
I heard all I could take, then I hit the FFWD.
Freddie's voice had way more depth and a richness to it, while Lambert sounds like something in a lot of pain.
There's a fine line in there somewhere, and I'm not even sure I can put my finger on it.
Voices like those in Rush and Styx have never appealed to me, and I've always wondered how anyone could endure an entire concert of theirs. AC/DC is another one.
Meanwhile, voices such as those of Robert Plant and Freddie Mercury are some of the greatest in the history of rock and roll, and I could listen to them endlessly. I'm not enough of an expert to define the subtle differences there, but I know what I like, and I know that Adam Lambert is not in the same league as Freddie Mercury, at least with regards to the vocals. Otherwise, I think he think he's very much like Freddie.
You are right-on about how great Plant and Mercury were... Adam's performance over the season weren't all top-notch, IMO, so he's still gonna need to prove he can be as consistently good as those guys were. /steve
Well since the recording career track record for American Idol winners and runner ups is pretty dismal (with the exception of Kelly Clarkson) What does he have to lose? Seems like a good fit. He would infuse new life/energy into an old band......
Carried Underwood - dismal? :nono:
Yup .. 5 million sold by Daughtry is a pittance :nono2:
