It’s been over a decade since American Idol finalist Adam Lambert started performing with Queen as their sensational singing collaborator. The star, who turns 41 today, has always been adamant that he’s not trying to mimic or replace Freddie Mercury. Instead, he feels he simply helps celebrate the late Queen frontman’s legacy with Sir Brian May and Roger Taylor. And according to the guitarist, he’s certainly worthy enough to take on such iconic vocals on the likes of Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You.

During Queen and Adam Lambert’s London O2 residency last summer, Sir Brian praised the singer’s incredible vocals, saying: “Here’s our boy ! In crackin’ form last night. I swear there isn’t a voice in Christendom to match those amazing pipes ! It’s a real privilege to work with …. The One and Only … Madam Lambert !!! Bri.”

At the time fans approvingly commented: “Freddie is looking down on him and smiling that amazing smile of his!” and “Nobody can replace Freddie, but Adam comes pretty damn close. Amazing voice.”
