I was highly sceptical too; but after a quick Google I am absolutely convinced it is John's son (the photos alone prove this).

I liked him. And I respect the fact that he didn't go on about his dad (but just wryly smiled and gave a few hints). What a lovely young man.

I am sure he is a great guy. But he must stop that clapping when he is making videos. That was very annoying.

Wow, that's surprising...never thought I'd see a kid of the band members on a Youtube reaction channel...reacting to the movie about the band. :? :-D

I guess it's him...seems super happy on those videos lol, almost too happy.^^ He also went to the QAL show recently in London, must be weird for him knowing all the stories and history from his father...like it was a little weird for him watching those trailers.

Who’d have thought a bassist’s son would have no sense of timing whatsoever!! :lol:

LOL. I wondered that as well, but the little videoframe with the trailer seems to be not in sync with the rest. He sometimes reacts to scenes or music, that hasn’t appeared in the video until then. That’s my explanation. ;)

I find it odd that he retweets about pop music all the time but he never mentions Q+AL.

EDIT
Scrolled back to 2014 on FB and he doesn't say one thing about Queen or Adam Lambert. Lots of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry posts.

I‘m somehow wondering, how much he really knows. He was born in 1993, if I‘m not mistaken. So he can‘t have memories of his father in Queen. And I‘m not sure, how much John is talking about his past with Queen. Nevertheless, he looks like a very proud son. And he hopes to go to the premiere of the film.
And indeed, he said, he saw QAL last month and when you scroll through his other YOuTube videos, you can see, that he attended another show last year in Wembley. There he sounded really engaged. :D

Well, he comes across as someone who could like a guy like Lambert.

:roll:
I think, he is there for Queen. His dad used to play in that band and wrote some of their songs. He seems to especially enjoy his songs. :)
And otherwise he seems to be more into the pop girls, as The Milkman found out.

He really does, that's why I thought it was odd. He promotes a lot of pop music but nothing about AL.

Prejudices, right? :cool:
After having followed Adam Lambert for 3 years on social media, I‘ve seen enough of HIS gay community to tell you, that the majority of them are big fans of the pop divas (Beyoncé, Madonna ect.). And although Adam’s friends do support him, being a gay artist does not mean, that you get special support by the gay community. Maybe, that will change. But as for now, they are often harder on their peers.
To me, Cam‘s interest in the younger pop girls (and other pop acts) is no surprise.

And if he supports QAL and Lambert or not: It’s clear from his videos, that he’s very careful to reveal, who he is. He doesn’t want to talk about his father. And every post about Queen and QAL arouses questions. But he seems to like, what he sees.

I seem to always picture John as some grumpy old man sitting on his porch complaining about that new confounded singer Adam and how the only good times were the good old days. So if Cam's reaction to the movie and Q+AL are of any indication, then it suggests that John may truly approve of what the band is doing. And I really appreciate his son's discretion regarding his father. Very respectful.

Nice little interview with Aaron Mccusker (Jim Hutton), who is full of praise for Jim and his relationship with Freddie. He also states his part is very small - only 4 or 5 scenes.

I should think we will start seeing more interviews like this one over the coming months; personally, I cannot wait for Rami and the boys to start doing TV interviews/chat shows (only a few months now).

At the weekend i took my Girlfriend and Mother to see Mamma Mia 2 at the local cinema.... in the trailers section what should come on... only our very own BoRhap, on the big screen it looks bloody fantastic.

The sound was spot on and the concert scenes look great.

This has made me want to see it even more. Thinking of making a trek so I can go watch it in IMAX so i can get the full experience.

They also had some great marketing displays in the foyer to advertise the film.

Roll on October!
