HAMMERSMITH AFTERMATH

FABULOUS!! Check out this Winkball video wall of interviews with people attending the Queen + Adam Lambert show in London. A few choice quotes:

Seems like this has given Brian a kick in the pants…

Adam does fantastic version of “Who Wants to Live Forever”…

So much energy…I’ve never seen Brian May so happy…

Can’t think of anyone better to collaborate with Queen on a new album…

I was really surprised by Adam – he nailed it…he brought some spark back to it…

I was very cynical but he proved me wrong. He was absolutely amazing.

You need a massive amount of charisma, and he has it.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

Put the Needle on it – GIG REVIEW: QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT, HMV HAMMERSMITH APOLLO, 12/07/2012 by @Freudenschade. “Asides from the man [Freddie] himself I don’t think there was anyone who could’ve done a better job as Queen’s frontman than Adam Lambert. He “gets” the pomp and showmanship of glam-rock better than any other popstar around and vocally he was more than capable of tackling some of most chanted songs in music history.”

You heard and loved Jian Ghomeshi’s interview with Adam Lambert for CBC Radio. Now you can feast your eyes on it!!

‏@jianghomeshi My full #QTV interview with @adamlambert. Always appreciate his eloquence and openness… (video, 19.41)

San Antonio New-Express – Singer Frank Ocean is making people listen “If we’re talking true risk-takers, I point to Ocean and Adam Lambert, who came out just after “American Idol” and on the cover of Rolling Stone, no less. It may have hindered Lambert’s career a bit, at least in the beginning, but it seemed genuine. And now, Lambert is filling in as a frontman for Queen during overseas shows and topped the Billboard 200 in May with sophomore album “Trespassing.” He’s the first openly gay artist to achieve that feat. Ocean’s success is just the latest movement in what seems to be a big shift in certain areas of pop culture.

      Ok, they should have Adam, but Jessie J is a really great singer. I once saw her outsing Jennifer Hudson.

      • July 17, 2012 7:58 pm

        Of course, Jennifer Hudson didn’t choose to engage in the competition. She looked at Jessie j. like she was a a cheeky little puppy.

    • July 17, 2012 11:37 pm

      I’m pretty sure the rule would be the same in any country when it comes to performers representing the country. The U.S. needs to get the Olympics and then Adam can sing!

    This is not a criticism of Adam: I’m worried and confused that Tresspassing has sold only 138K in the US. Thought there were more of us true believers than that-any thoughts or concerns on this Xena/Juneau? or info about his new management’s strategy? Would others join me in buying one or two more copies of this outstanding album and giving them to others? It deserves a much wider audience!

    • July 17, 2012 10:14 pm

      Many fans have been gifting the album like crazy, bless them. But I’m not sure if that’s the best strategy. I would hate for the media or some unfriendly blogger to get wind of it and use the info to discredit Adam. Xena and I do think about the trajectory of Adam’s career against the background of today’s music industry. We’ll probably write a post about it eventually (again)! The way I see it, Adam is doing fine. He got a huge boost from Idol, but he is just now starting to figure out what kind of artist he wants to be. Remember, he is a singer first, and an aspiring song-writer second. He knows who he is as a singer, but figuring out what you want to say as a song-writer is an entirely different process and may take years. In the meantime, he has a sizable, passionate fan base that will support him for the long haul. Will that be enough to keep label support over time? Possibly not, but there are alternative paths to success. That said, I suddenly had the thought that the label may be pressuring Adam around now to put out a Christmas album! LOL. – J

        thank you for the reply-have heard it said that Jews make the best Christmas albums-Barbra,Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow

    • July 17, 2012 11:54 pm

      We have been researching the radio business and who,what,where,why and how of the music selection process and will post the results here.

      Hope that helps!

    It is my understanding that only an Englishman or woman can sing at the Olympics! Adam isn’t from the British Isles! THANK GOODNESS, he is OURS!
