Brian May reveals BIGGEST Queen change since Adam Lambert
QUEEN guitarist Brian May has given an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk ahead of his new Diableries exhibition and book out this week, and as the busy musician enjoys the break before the band embark on yet another tour, he reflected on Adam Lambert’s addition to the band and the difference between him and original front man Freddie Mercury.
And as he got excited about the momentous news, May went on to talk about his beloved band Queen, revealing Adam Lambert is like “new blood” he has so much energy, even joking the band, which was once fronted by Freddie Mercury, have all been “drinking” it to “stay young”.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, May shared: “Yeah he’s a shot in the arm he really is. He’s like new blood, you know actually, we have been secretly drinking Adam’s blood to stay young.
“That’s what Halloween is all about!” the music star laughed.
The Queen band-member’s schedule is still full-steam ahead, but he still has time to focus on one of his other passions – animals – in the break between tours.
The music group will be taking to Korea and Japan in January, before moving on to Australia and New Zealand on their hugely-successful Rhapsody tour, and May called the scenario “full-on”.
Asked whether he’s looking forward to the next run of tour dates, May was enthusiastic.
“Yeah I am yeah, this is what we do,” he said simply. “It takes a lot of application, a lot of focus, and we have to be fit, because if you weren’t fit you really would fall down very quickly.
“So I’m more serious on fitness these days. That’s another passion now! I like this fitness, I like it!” the guitarist giggled.
