Plenty of celebrities and musicians are pushing the astrology angle
reaches a moment of catharsis and then fades
It has to be Nick Cave’s week
“There’s not as much of a reason to be scared of it, because people in general aren’t scared of it.”
At best the evening (and Mercury substitute) put Queen on life support. Adam Lambert fulfills a dream and the musicians can continue making love to their instruments and bring the larger than life deceased Freddie Mercury back from the dead. “After all these years who would have thought we would have the chance to be rock gods again?”
Never before have so few done so much with so little. Queen are simply not a very good band saved from obscurity by the ashtrays of emotion that was Freddie Mercury and a firm grasp on maybe half a dozen indelible songs. Queen was what you got when Mercury added Liberace to Elvis Presley.
Lou Reed Lou Reed – Luke Haines – This is the guy behind Black Box Recorder and it is sizzled and smart blues smoothie tribute song which seems to really not have that much to do with Lou but who can complain? – B+
A leather booted rent boy with a taste for musical theatre and a voice built for hard rock, he has been playing with Queen, off and on, for the past couple of years. Lambert hasn’t proven himself on record, no, actually he has proven he sucks on record, but he should be an excellent Queen frontman.
Adam Lambert, the chiseled winner of the horrific American Idol talent show will be stepping on to the stage front and center with the band Queen..as Queen. Yes, Lambert has replaced Mercury and the entire world is just wrong now.
