Another one perishes… There will be no more new Queen recordings.
Because their studio efforts were not “good enough,” Queen will not release any new songs with frontman Adam Lambert. Despite rehearsing with Lambert and Roger Taylor for weeks on their new songs this year, guitarist Brian May felt that no one would go crazy for them.
He revealed that 30 years after his death, people still “expect” to hear Freddie Mercury’s voice.
May, 74, stated that the sessions “didn’t really go anywhere,” but added, “We had a lot of fun.”
“However, we didn’t think anything was promising enough to pursue.
“It would have to be amazing and something that would make you stop and think.”
“Live, I think everybody’s gotten quite acclimated to the notion that Adam more than delivers,” he said of Lambert, 39. It’s fine if some people don’t like it. They can listen to the albums from the comfort of their own homes.
“However, the majority of people adore it. I’m quite pleased of what Queen and Adam Lambert do out there.”
Queen’s 15th album, Made In Heaven, was released in 1995, and it was the last of their collaborations with Mercury.
May stated he was doing well after recovering from a heart attack and eye surgery while promoting the re-release of his debut solo album Back To The Light.
