Lambert Brushes Off Queen Rumours
American Idol loser Adam Lambert has dismissed rumours he is set to front rock legends Queen.
The group's guitarist Brian May gave 2009 runner-up Lambert a boost by praising his abilities after performing with the singer on the finale of the U.S. TV talent show last month (May09).
But Lambert insists he has no plans to join the band full-time, as he wants to carve out a career in his own right.
Lambert says, "They’ve never actually offered me anything. They expressed interest in working together, but just said they’d like to have a meaningful conversation, and that’s it. It could have meant they wanted me to come to dinner with them, it could have meant they wanted to talk about the meaning of life.
"I don’t know if joining the band permanently is in the cards (sic) for me right now. They’re legends; I’m just the new kid on the block.”
