Could Adam Lambert Become Queen's New Front Man?
By Adam Bryant Mon May 25, 7:52 AM PDT

If you thought Adam Lambert looked like a natural fit with iconic rockers Queen during American Idol's finale, you weren't the only one.

Hours after it was announced that Lambert was Season 8's runner-up last week, widespread speculation began circulating that the 26-year-old singer had been offered a job as Queen's new front man. While that's not true yet, guitarist Brian May isn't ruling out the possibility.

"Amongst all that furor, there wasn't really a quiet moment to talk. But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point," May told Rolling Stone. "It's not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn't that easy. But I'd certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there."

Queen recently ended a four-year relationship with Paul Rodgers, who was handling the vocal duties for the band.

Lambert auditioned for Idol with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and instantly became a buzzed-about contender for the show's Top 36. His revved-up, glam-rock numbers and hauntingly restrained ballads made him the front-runner all season before ultimately coming up short. While the show has produced more pop artists than rockers, May recognizes that springboard it provides young artists.

For now, Lambert must first complete the 50-city tour with his fellow Top 10 members, and the Idol producers, 19 Entertainment, will likely have first dibs on anything Lambert does next. May said whatever happens, he's excited to see what Lambert and Idol winner Kris Allen (who also shared the stage during "We Are the Champions") do next.

"Both those boys are well worthy of big success," May said. "So it's pointless for someone like me to stand on the sidelines jeering. I'm confident Adam will make great use of this wonderful opportunity. I hope I'm there to see it."

I remember when Daughtry was offered a lead singer gig with....cant remember the rock band...(Fuel maybe?) but people thought he was a fool for turning them down. I'm thinking Lambert will do just fine by himself w/o having to jump onboard with these guys.

Didn't Gene Simmons say that Lambert was welcome to front KISS? Idol is gheyer than Liberace dressed as Cher doing a Liza Minelli impersonation, but the Lambert kid has an amazing voice and stage presence. I have to admit that I turned on the show just to see what he'd do each week. Once he was done, it got turned off, but he was good enough to make me watch the show for the first time ever.

As far as I'm concerned Queen is retired.

Turning in your man card has nothing to do with being gay, it has to do with no longer being able to call yourself a man. Go put on some panties or something woman.

While Lambert could front for Queen, its definitely not the best place to *start* a career...although I don't particularly think he's mainstream enough to do what Daughtry did.

I don't know...first time I saw the guy, my initial impression was "Jesus...this kid reminds me of Freddy Mercury." The range, the bravado, the stage presence. Actually, due to the fact that this kid hasn't really done anything in terms of fronting a band, his overall ability to tie in the theatrics, lighting, and ear for creative arrangements was quite impressive.
