Roger Taylor, of Queen, has hinted that American Idol runner up, Adam Lambert, will once again collaborate with the band.
In an interview with canoe, the drummer for the rock band says that they could reunite as early as 2014.
Speaking about previous shows with Lambert, Taylor said, “It was a one-off but it went really fantastically well, He’s really come on even more. He’s a real dark force now. And he’s very theatrical. And he really interprets our songs just brilliantly. And he has that incredible instrument, that voice, and I feel he’s going away from the pop thing which is good I think. And he’s becoming a serious player.”
It’s no surprise that this has worked out for Lambert, he was seen as one of the most theatrical performers to ever hit American Idol.
He has by far amassed the success of season 8 winner, Kris Allen, and easily fits the description of what Queen would need if they were to have a tour.
Lambert would of course be filling the shoes of Freddie Mercury, the former front man of Queen, who passed away in 1991.
Just last week, it was announced that ‘Skyfall’ actor, Ben Whishaw, would portray Mercury in a biopic about himself and the band.
