May, who along with Taylor parted ways with recent Queen frontman Paul Rodgers, added, "I've not always been positive about shows like (American Idol), but there is no doubt that it offers a door to some real genuine talent along the way. . . I'm confident Adam will make great use of this wonderful opportunity. I hope I'm there to see it."

Has Queen gone Quazy?
With all the press that American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is receiving after his four-minute spot singing "We Are The Champions" with Brian May and Roger Taylor, you would almost think he landed the gig as Queen's new frontman. Brian May for one isn't completely ruling it out, telling Rolling Stone, "There wasn't really a quiet moment to talk, but (Roger) and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point. It's not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn't that easy. But I'd certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there."
