“The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story” aired on ABC in the US last week and Queen icon Roger Taylor slams the people who compares Adam Lambert to legendary Freddie Mercury.
According to the Sunday Express, Taylor believes that Freddie Mercury comparisons are unimaginative at all.
Here is his statement:
“Comparisons with Freddie are wasting their time. He’s had to cope with it because people are so f**king unimaginative. Fred’s dead and he’s not going to be [at the shows], so if you come to see us – you’re not going to see him!
Taylor also revealed why they asked Lambert to join Queen:
“We were not seeking to ‘recreate’ Mercury when we asked Lambert to join us. We’re not trying to recreate our Freddie. So if people do think that, I haven’t patience with them, and please don’t come. But if you want to just enjoy our music, done really well, please do come.
There are a lot of Fred impersonators around and they put on a fake moustache and a yellow jacket and it’s… good luck, you know? Good luck on that cruise ship.
Brian May also shared his opinion and said:
“We want our music to be alive and dangerous and still open to change. Freddie would hate to have things reproduced the way they were.”
