When you're asked to do a tribute to someone it will obviously be a cover, same when you're asked to be part of a xmas show or a musical like Ratatouille and a lot of other things he's been involved in. The one's he's done this year that aren't specific like those he's done several of his own songs, just like all artists do.midnight sky wrote: ↑Sat Jan 09, 2021 8:06 amI very much doubt that he would have been asked without the Queen connection.whitequeen20 wrote: ↑Sat Jan 09, 2021 5:27 amWhy would the Queen connection have anything to do with it, Adam is a solo artist who gets asked to do lots of stuff that has nothing to do with Queen or his connection to them and he doesn't stick out IMO, he's been a Bowie fan and covered his music for years just like a lot of artists on the bill, why should he be any different. The powers that be in these events know Adam from lots of places and for lots of reasons, nothing to do with Queen, the fact you think he shouldn't be part of these events is what sticks out like a sore thumb, it says you think he's not a legitimate artist and not worthy of being asked, clearly lots of industry people think very differently about him.midnight sky wrote: ↑Fri Jan 08, 2021 10:39 pm
At this point, i truly believe some of his fans would love things no matter what he sings, as long as AL is the one front and center. It's really obvious. No, no one has to be a Bowie fan, but I do feel many AL fans are missing out on so much. There is a big world out there. I came here as a Queen fan in 2007. Know something, I've learned litreally about 100s if not more artists because of people and posts here discussing other artists . And I'm glad and had my ears and eyes opened to so much. It's one of the things I'm most thankful here as a Queen and as a music fan.
I will not forget this, there have been so many Lambert fans who made their way here. How many have discussed Queen with Freddie in detail and was open to learning more about it. One. If that poster ever reads this, I thank her for that. At least she tried, asked questions, and we'll gave a damn enough to learn more.
And not everyone has to like AL singing, solo or Queen songs either.
I think it would be nice if Brian and Roger appeared...with or without AL. They have more of a connection with Bowie than AL ever did. I find it so strange that AL is involved with this at all. But I guess it's the Queen connection that made it happen. And many more people than AL thought of Bowie as their...I won't even say idol, but role model. Given the line up, AL is sticking out like s sore thumb with this in my books. I really hope he does good with the song though.
Yea, he gets asked to do lots of stuff. Usually covers.
Look at most of the acts involved with the tribute, I'd say all of them had more connection and in some cases friendship with Bowie than AL ever did. I would have given Lambert's spot to Brian and Roger if I had to choose.
All those acts are either people who worked with Bowie or as it specifically says were influenced by him, pretty sure yungblud didn't work with him so what's his connection?
No idea why you imagine Adam wouldn't be asked if not for Queen, he has plenty of credibility without the Queen connection. Mike Garson knows him, he posted on Adam's instagram "really looking forward to reuniting with you and having you on board with us". He played piano for him on the AMA's and it was recorded at Mike's house, industry people recognize how good he is and he gets asked because of that. Also he knows far more people in the industry than you seem to think and the majority aren't because of Queen.
