Queen+Paul Rodgers VS Queen+Adam Lambert [Poll]

Postby KNIGHT » Mon Apr 02, 2018 12:17 pm

I have seen live both collaboration between Queen+Paul Rodgers and Queen+Adam Lambert. I have to say at the beginning I didn’t like Adam Lambert. He was always screaming, and I didn’t like the way he sung. But then I saw them live last year, in what I consider one of the best Queen tours, and I was very overwhelmed by Adam.

Nowadays I prefer Queen playing music with Adam Lambert than what they have done with Paul Rodgers. I think Paul sings very well but I always thought that he didn’t fully incorporate the Queen songs.

Paul Rodgers by a mile.

It's the difference between Queen playing with a legend in his own right whom I'm already a huge fan of, to some nobody I couldn't care less about.

That was pretty much my exact line of thought when I first heard that QAL was going to be a thing. Because like you I was already a fan of Paul before that started, and I once it did I downloaded bootlegs, went to a QPR concert, even bought Live In Ukraine. Adam was to me, at that point, some American Idol guy I didn't even know anything about. I actually remember laughing about it with a friend of mine. But, I eventually decided to check QAL out, and give it a chance, and now I'm a fan. So...I vote Adam, but definitely not by a mile.

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

Paul Rodgers by a thousand miles. I still love the way he sang Queen songs. He really interpreted them, made them his own. The first tour in particular was very special.

I still play the album in my car quite often. Some of the best songs Brian and Roger have ever written are on a (now) obscure collaboration album. Those songs deserved better promotion than they got.

EDIT: I was not a fan of Paul when the 2005 tour happened. I had heard some of his songs only in passing. For some reason, Bad Company and Free were never really that popular in my country. Thanks to QPR, I started to appreciate what a marvelous singer, songwriter and performer he is (especially the stunning metamorphosis he went through from the early 90's compared to when he started playing with Queen). I think now as I thought back then - Paul was a classy choice to front Queen. That other dude... that was a kitschy choice.

I have seen some Queen + Lambert stuff, on YouTube and the like. It just did nothing for me. I find Lambert to be a bit of a prat.

That's no slight against people who do enjoy his work, such as yourself, just my personal opinion.

Paul for many reasons.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~
