Queen's Brian May has credited the band's touring frontman Adam Lambert with "waking the band up."

The band's iconic original frontman Freddie Mercury died of AIDS in 1991, and guitarist Brian May told VH1 that he believed the band was over after Mercury's death.

"I never thought it would happen again," he said. "When Freddie went, I thought, 'That's it. We did that. It was a great life. Now, it's time to have a different life', and for years, we didn't try to be Queen in any way."

Queens first performed with Adam Lambert during an episode of American Idol, onwhich Lambert was a contestant, in 2011. Speaking of Adam Lambert's involvement with the band, May said: "I think he's woken us up."

Queen's sixteenth album, Queen Forever, which features mostly archival material from the 1980s, is set for release later this year.
