Legendary rock-band Queen has announced they have a replacement for Freddie Mercury: a young man named Adam Lambert.
Adam Lambert gained noteriety after an appearance on American Idol, where he managed to take second place. During Lambert’s performances, many viewers stated there was a ‘similarity’ to Lambert’s vocal abilities to that of the late Mercury.
Queen purists however disagree. The announcement that Lambert will be headlining the band has fallen upon deaf ears for many. People refuse to believe that Freddie Mercury could ever really be replaced and with rightful reason. Mercury was more than just a unique voice: his entire presentation was patently unique.
Only time will tell if Lambert will go on to be a legendary singer or another forgotten voice. But one thing is for certain, old school Queen will likely be a staple of ‘classic rock’ for years to come.
