Discuss Queen's collaboration with Adam Lambert
I could see him doing Cool Cat, hell a cover of it would have fit nicely on Velvet. Of course it’s a Mercury/Deacon track so Brian probably wouldn’t allow that. He would rather add his shitty Machines to the set list.Black Wings wrote: ↑Thu Jul 09, 2020 10:44 pmMany Hot Space songs I'm surprised it wasn't given a go after all this time. It might have suited AL much better than the harder rock songs, I dare say.
Such a fabulous sound. How come Adam doesn’t move much though? He slowly strolls, moving his hands around a bit, many times just standing still. It’s strange to see a performer doing that in a rock song. Adam is moving like molasses, he doesn’t like dancing? He needs some athletic, macho dance moves to get things going. Up lot of the seat. It’s kind of like watching one of those karaoke singers perform. I mean, he moves so sluggish except for a couple brief bits.
I’m not comparing Adam to Freddie, but I’m comparing him to rock ‘n’ rollers in general. Most rock stars give a much faster and more athletic performance unless they are playing an instrument or are very old. It really will get the crowd moving if he moves more, otherwise it looks like he’s going through the motions and isn’t feeling the track.
Watch some Wayne Newton videos, Wayne is even more athletic than Adam during a song performance.
Adam’s a great singer, but he’s definitely the slowest moving performer (unless it was deliberately done as some anti-rocker piece). It’s just one of the things I could never understand.
