Adam Lambert says he studied Freddie footage before fronting Queen


 Adam Lambert speaking to Absolute Radio…

I did some studying. I felt I really needed to. I was pretty familiar with them, but when I first started working with them, that’s when I went onto the internet and scoured everything.”

On Freddie’s Montreal performance….

“He’s running around in shorts, with no shoes on. Watching him in that zone really made me understand him. He just didn’t give a shit. He was like, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want.’ I think he kind of defined what a rock star was to me. He doesn’t actually care – and he’s so fabulous doing it.”
