“Now I know my heart is a Ghost Town,” sang Adam Lamber sang the phrase, “Now I know my heart is a ghost town,” in Rio on Saturday, as Queen guitarist Brian May went nuts on the fretboard, turning the electronic beats of the song into a powerhouse rock and roll anthem. Read on for more details.
Queen and Lambert were playing at “Rock in Rio” this weekend, as Lambert continues serving as the frontman for the rock group on the world tour, trying to fill in for the late lamented Freddy Mercury. Lambert has received worldwide plaudits for his gig with Queen, but it was May gave Lambert the biggest compliment of his life earlier this month in at interview with blabbermouth:
“When Adam walks onto a stage, it’s not Freddie, and it’s not him trying to be Freddie, but when Adam walks on and when Freddie walks on, something happens; there’s some kind of catalytic action that happens between people, and it’s a very rare and special thing. So I would say that’s something that Adam and Freddie share, and I know that Freddie would agree with that.”
May said Lambert is the only person who could possibly do the whole Queen catalog by heart, calling him “a gift from God.” Lambert, with his characteristic modesty, refused any comparison with Mercury saying he was only looking to share how much he had been inspired by Queen.
It is poetically apt however that Lambert, the first openly gay artist to achieve number 1 on the Billboard charts with (his 2012 album “Trespassing) should be filling in from Freddie Mercury.
