AL fans are his fans, there's no requirement for them to be Bowie fans, they love to hear Adam sing regardless if it's his own music or a cover of another artist, why should they have to be a fan of the artist he's covering to enjoy hearing him sing the music? And why should it matter if they aren't fans of the original, that makes zero sense to me? Also just because Adam's Idols were Freddie, Bowie, Prince, Elvis et al shouldn't mean his fans have to love the same artists he does/did.midnight sky wrote: ↑Fri Jan 08, 2021 6:49 pmI will always think it's a shame that some AL fans are ignorant to the history of Queen. A more recent example just from yestersay, AL will be taking part in a Bowie tribute today. Apparently some AL fans on an AL fan site don't know much about Bowie. They just want to watch AL's part and that's it, don't want to pay the 25 dollars to watch the other artists. That tells me so much right there.dave4343palace wrote: ↑Fri Jan 08, 2021 5:46 pmI completely agree... but every single word exactly applies the same for Q+PR, as well as solo work etc and projects from the archive that newer fans have no respect for or comprehension of what they may have meant at the time...
Personally, if I could afford it, I would pay to watch the Bowie Tribute. There is going to be some very good artists involved, I'm surprised Brian and Roger are not. Maybe they will join Adam?
It just makes me sad and it rankles when people are ignorant to history. And it's been said so many times Freddie, Bowie etc were Idols for AL...as if that means we all must instantly accept AL because of that.
There are a lot of Adam's fans who are now Queen fans and have delved into the original music but equally there are fans who only go because of Adam and aren't interested in the original band and there are fans who don't like him doing Queen at all and would prefer he just do his own music. Music is subjective and I don't see why anyone should try to be interested in something they aren't, it's hardly like Queen are short of fans that they need every AL fan to want to know their history.
I wouldn't imagine B & R would be joining him, it would say that if it were all of them.
