AL calls himself a guest. ;)

I would like to ask him if the end to this project is anywhere in sight?

Yes: A guest for Queen. But he's a member of QAL.
Even Neil, Rufus and Tyler (his came later though) recorded podcasts. That's why I was really surprised earlier, that there is none with Adam. By now, I'm not surprised by it.

Why aren't you surprised there is none with Adam? He might have been asked, and was too busy or refused for all we know.

There is some info about the musical theater stuff etc. I read somewhere on there that he got asked in interview about vocal technique etc early on after Idol, but the interviewers didn't seem to know what he was talking about and kept changing the subject so maybe that's why he never talks about it anymore.

I noticed, that Adam always dodges questions about vocal techniques and especially his range. He never answeres these. I think, that's clever. ;)
I don't know much about singing. I simply enjoy, what I like. :) By now I know, that Adam must be an absolute expert. It was mostly noticable, when he was judging at X-Factor in Australia. when he coached or gave critique, I could see, that he really knew, what he was talking about. So, hearing a bit about it, would be interesting. BUT I'm not sure, Adam would like to talk about it.


This is a transcript of the Twitter conversation he had, just in case you want to read it. Bit hard to follow, his answer appears to be above the question. People mistakenly thought he was using falsetto all the time in the high notes so he was explaining it, he seemed happy enough since they were understanding him so I'm guessing he would talk about it if the person asking the questions was knowledgeable. In a normal interview there'd be no point as they likely wouldn't understand the terminology.

Thanks, I knew about that. I meant, he never speaks about his range. Sometimes he does speak about techniques. At least, when he thinks, it's important.

Ah right, yeah he doesn't seem to think range is important and I know what he means really. It's no good being able to hit a note if it sounds rubbish so I suppose he's right in saying "but does it sound good".

His recorded range is said to be E2 - Bb5 (3 octaves, 6 semi tones). Not sure if he has a wider range than that live, don't think anyone's done a profile on it for a few years.

There's a few vids on YouTube showing male vocal ranges and he's included in some with examples from songs.

It could be. But I wouldn't be surprised, if he was ignored in the first place.
Why I think so?
Because his name was barely mentioned on "Queen-Online" (and I'm not talking about the forum). By now, there are more posts of reviews and so on. In early 2015 there was no information about QAL, but the announcement of the tour (if I remember it correctly).

And when I look at Instagram, I'm greeted with:
"QUEEN is Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon and they play rock 'n' roll."
All right. But as someone, who just attended a QAL-concert, I'm wrong then.

I remember checking the pictures on instagram (I came later to instagram, so this must have been in 2016): old pictures of Queen, new pictures of QAL. No picture involved Adam.

All these are examples, that all together showed me, that the people, who run Queen-Online and other Queen-related social-media, don't want Adam related to Queen at all. It did change a bit by now. I think after 6 years, there is no way anymore to ignore Adam completely.
Remind, that's only my personal impression.
I understand, that Queen-fans don't want Adam to be a part of Queen. But an online fanpage should in my opinion be a source of the current tour as well. And Adam is a big part of that. How about:
"QUEEN was Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon and they played rock 'n' roll.
Brian and Roger are out on tour now with Adam Lambert." ?? It wouldn't cost Queen anything. It might just sound more up to date and more welcoming for newbies, who just witnessed a great concert and really liked the frontman.

That's just my opinion and suggestion. No, I don't need it and I don't need a podcast as well. It would just make Queen-Online more open-minded, if it included the current frontman just a little more.

Queen was and always will be Freddie, Brian, Roger and John though.
And QOL is open minded. If that wasn't the case, discussions about many things ( not just AL )wouldn't be happening.

If you are an example of "open minded", it is not a wonder that there is little mention of Adam. You guys seem to totally forget that it is not Queen touring right now and for the last 6 years, it is QAL, a beast of a different color!
This is also a QAL thread, not a Queen thread and it is also totally different!

I said QOL is open minded. I'm well aware what you think of me by now. So because of me there is little mention of Adam?
Oh I think we can bring up Queen with Freddie here, not against any rules whatsoever. And besides, AL wouldn't be where he is without Queen.
I can tell the difference between Queen and Q+AL. One was and remains orginal, groundbreaking, legendary, one is not so orginal and groundbreaking, legendary.

In your opinion. Not in mine. And especially not concerning the collaboration.

I've been here long enough to know this place is open minded. The people here have alot to do with that.
I feel Q+AL and especially AL gets enough free advertising here, considering what I've seen since Q+AL began. Shows info are on the home page. I don't have problem/s with how things were done. Ask any rock fan who they think Queen is, I dare say much of the time it's Freddie, Brian, Roger and John who they mention. Not Lambert, no matter how many Q+AL fans are 'won over'.

I remember good old times when whole threads were deleted together with all concerts photographs and reviews. No wonder there is hardly anyone posting now.
