Roger Taylor and Brian May of Queen have revealed some pretty big news in a recent interview with Classic Rock.
As per Ultimate Classic Rock, in 2016 they had reported that Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May weren’t totally opposed to recording with the stand-in frontman, Adam Lambert.
Taylor had said, “If we do anything in the future, I’d like it to be something new. I don’t know how new it would sound, but I think if Brian could come up with a song or two which we felt sort of fitted.”
However, a few years later down the track, Ultimate Classic Rock once again reported on the partnership between Lambert and Queen and whether or not they’d work together.
Lambert said at the time, “People always ask if we want to record together. I’m not sure it makes total sense because it wouldn’t really be Queen, because to me Queen is Freddie (Mercury).”
Despite the fact that it felt like we’d never actually know if they’d ever actually collaborate on recorded material together, we can rest assured now.

But, it isn’t finished.
Taylor told Classic Rock, “We did record a song which we haven’t actually finished. I can’t remember what it’s called. I think we were still discussing what we should call it.”
May added, “It was a song that we’d tried to adapt that had come from a friend. It had the makings of being a great song, but we couldn’t crack it. We couldn’t get there.”
Despite the fact that it doesn’t sound like they could get the track across the line, it’s not over yet.
Taylor said, “It would be nice to do some stuff. I wouldn’t rule it out. Adam has said, ‘Any time you want me to sing on something … .’ If the other two decide ‘Let’s do something,’ I’d be there.”
