Adam was a struggling artist from age 18 to 26 when he auditioned for American Idol. He did not come out of nowhere to be on that show like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood did. Try googling his name to see what he has been doing since age 10. Nothing has been handed to Adam and he is still struggling, especially in the U.S. where the conservative-monopolized radio stations refuse to play his music because of his sexuality. It's not the same situation there like it was in the 80's when Boy George came on the scene. You may be thinking of Justin Bieber who was handed fame by his mentor, Usher. Roger Taylor said that Adam's voice is one in 100,000. I think Brian and Roger should be trusted as experts in recognizing true talent.

Edit: Actually, I think Roger said that Adam's voice is one in a hundred MILLION!

Exactly, he was struggling until the reality machine built him up and marketed him. Rodgers had immense fame, fame that he had secured for himself, long before going anywhere near Queen. There's just no comparing to two.

What I'm saying is that Adam didn't go from doing nothing until he auditioned for American Idol. Adam was already a polished stage performer when he hit the Idol stage and it was his own ideas and creativity that made him so successful on that show. He had toured in Europe with the musical "Hair" and had performed in a musical in L.A. with Val Kilmer. He was not built up by the reality machine. He was already there. I wish he had come up with a rock band as their front man. He tried that, too, with a group called Citizen Vein. I'm watching a show right now where Tommy Mattola is being interviewed about his days managing the greats and how different and difficult it is now to succeed in the music business. That's why those of us who did become Lambert fans through seeing him on Idol were so thrilled that Brian and Roger wanted to collaborate with him. I don't think just any singer out there can go up on a stage and sing Queen music as easily and comfortably as Adam did last summer in those six shows in the Ukraine, Poland, Russia and London. Also, Adam and Paul are two completely different singers. And, of course, no one will ever be another Freddie Mercury, right?

I can appreciate that PR is a great singer etc but having attended the first tour (Wembley Pavillion) i have to say that i found the overall QPR experience rather disappointing.I know i was (probably unfairly) comparing it with Queen but when you've seen the best anything else pales into insignificance.

Rodgers all day long. Lambert sounds like a cat being tortured. At least Rodgers was at least an equal with Brian and Roger in terms of his songwriting and back catalogue. Lambert has nothing.

Definitely Paul Rogers.
The collaboration with Lambert was not more than a bad joke.

Ah ok, last interview I heard it did indeed sound like this was more or less over. But now it sounds like it will be a (to quote Phil Collins who said he doesn't do tours anymore) "selection of shows" in the USA to test the waters. I wish them success. The Queen Extravaganza was probably a good way to reintroduce America to Queen music. Now it's yet another try for them to reconquer the United States.

It's so up and down the news about AL. I can't help but wonder what if anything there might be next. AL will be on TV soon and there is rumors of a new album from him next year.

Yay, Rodgers is winning now! :-P

I would love the opportunity to see Brian and Roger live again, so if that means I'll be seeing Adam as well, so be it. I welcome a tour. I guess. :P
