Can Adam Lambert Fill Freddy’s Shoes?

Brian May thinks so.

Brian May thinks so. The song writer, lead guitarist-cum-physicist has been an Adamant supporter of the Idol hero to front the legendary bohemian rock gods, Queen, in an upcoming concert festival in the UK. (As an aside, Brian May after living the life of a guitar hero, which included 18 Queen top-charting albums, he went back to school to get a degree in astrophysics, graduating with a phd in 2007. His dissertation was on interplanetary dust. Nerd out to this interview.)
