Queen drummer Roger Taylor was recently interviewed by Good Morning America and shared the difficult times Brian May, John Deacon and himself had after Freddie Mercury’s death in November 1991.

Roger Taylor admitted that all of the members thought that it’s all over for the Queen.

Here is what Roger said:

“We thought it was all over. I think Brian and I thought that was the end of that chapter. A friend of mine called me up and said, ‘I’ve just seen the most amazing singer on American Idol. The singer’s name was Adam Lambert.

I checked it out and he was singing ‘Whole Lotta Love’ by Led Zeppelin and just blowing it away. Fantastic. We got in touch, and we were then asked to do the finale of Idol, which we flew over to do with the two finalists and we just got on magically with Adam.

It sort of grew into touring and we found this magical partnership that works beautifully. Everything that’s happened, especially since we met Adam, has just been fate unfolding. I guess this film tonight is telling the basic story of that.”
