We don’t know about all of you Adam Lambert fans out there but we never get tired of hearing praise towards the star – especially from the likes of Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Both men are of course members of legendary rock band Queen and they have been working with Adam, on and off, for around five years now.

The group had a huge tour of North America across the summer which later led them as far as Australia and New Zealand.

Unfortunately though, there was no visit to Europe or the UK – however it wasn’t long until those shows were confirmed to take place at the beginning of next year.

Adam for many is the ideal vocalist for Queen and he and Freddie Mercury have quite a bit in common when you look at their performances.

In an interview with Universal Music Japan recently, Brian confessed that there are high notes that sometimes he thinks Adam even surpasses his late friend.

“We didn’t look for this guy, suddenly he’s there, and he can sing all of those lines. See, they’re difficult songs to sing, Queen songs,” he said.

May added: “Adam comes along, and he can do it easy. He can do it in his sleep. He can sing higher than even Freddie could in a live situation.”

“So I think Freddie would look at this guy and think, ‘Hmm, yeah. Okay’. There would be a kind of, ‘Hmm, you b**tard, you can do this’.”

Comparing the two, Brian explained that for him Adam “is a showman” adding that “he doesn’t have to try” and that everything he does comes naturally – much like Freddie during his time.

“Adam is so much like Freddie in many ways. But Adam doesn’t have to try to be like Freddie, which is the nice thing. He doesn’t imitate – he just does his own thing.”

We’re pretty sure that won’t be the last of the praise that Adam receives. We always wonder how he feels when he hears Brian May comparing his work to that of Freddie Mercury.
