“Queen + Adam Lambert” icon Adam Mitchel Lambert was recently interviewed by ABC Television and revealed his real thoughts about the people who compare him to Queen legend Freddie Mercury.
Adam Lambert admitted that he’s not Freddie and he will never be… Here is what Lamber said to ABC:
“I know some of you out there are thinking, ‘He’s no Freddie Mercury, though. No sh**.’ There will only be, for all of time, one rock god, Freddie Mercury. Thank you for giving me a chance.
The biggest trip I was going through was the fact that I knew that by singing these songs as the lead singer that I was inevitably going to be compared to Freddie.
People know the songs because of the recordings, I learned the songs because of the recordings. Freddie’s unbelievable. His voice is one in a million, trillion, zillion. I’m filling in for this God. I’m not him. I knew that I wasn’t Freddie.
Once I got over my own head trip ‘Oh God, are they going to compare me to Freddie? Oh God, am I good enough?’, I realised this once own lifetime chance to be a vessel and just perform.
When these early performances were so well received it was a sense of victory because the stakes were so high for me.”
