More about: Queen
Adam Lambert has been touring with Queen as replacement for the late, great Freddie Mercury for quite some years now - and now he says that he's game for recording new material with the rock legends.
Ahead of their headline slot at the Isle Of Wight Festival this weekend, Lambert told Digital Spy that he would glady make a record with the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' icons, providing the sound was right.
"If something sounds cool and it's the right thing to do at the right time, then I'm game," he said. "I haven't heard anything like that come up. But also, maybe it's an issue of, is that Queen without Freddie?
He added: "To me, Queen is... that's why we're billed as Queen plus Adam Lambert. I'm their guest who's filling in by singing these songs and having a great time doing it. But it's not necessarily Queen."

Speaking to Gigwise about Lambert's role in the band, guitarist Brian May said: "He brings new blood; he brings enthusiasm, energy and opportunity. How could we do this without him If you looked for someone like that you would never find them."
When we asked last year if we could expect a new album, he replied: "Not at the moment for Queen, no," he replied. "I’m writing for a project I’m doing with Kerry Ellis at the moment got a couple of new things for that she’s a nice outlet and it’s stuff I’m very excited about."
