Adam Lambert is the latest in a line of Freddie Mercury fill-ins to front Queen in the last couple decades. Elton John, Robbie Williams and Paul Rodgers came before him.

At 32, he’s also the youngest, and the May-December aspect of the alliance was impossible to ignore during Sunday’s Merriweather Post Pavilion show whenever he stood next to drummer Roger Taylor, who turns 65 this week, or guitarist Brian May, now 67.

But somebody’s gotta sing these songs. A 2006 survey rated Queen’s first greatest hits collection as by far the greatest selling record in England’s history; press materials for the current tour claim that it can be found in “one in three British households.” That poll also ranked Queen’s “Greatest Hits II” as the seventh biggest British album of all time.

True story: I was watching "American Idol" one night during the season that Adam Lambert was competing. I said to my wife – Mrs. Brown will vouch for this – “that guy should sing with Queen.”

Sharon Osbourne: 'Adam Lambert is the closest thing
to a rock star TV talent shows have produced'

Sharon Osbourne believes Adam Lambert is the nearest thing to a genuine rock star TV talent shows have ever produced.

The vocal powerhouse was a runner-up on American Idol in 2009 and he has since gone on to front Queen.

Speaking in the latest issue of Classic Rock magazine, talent judge Osbourne was asked if her show The X Factor will produce a real rock 'n' roll star.

She replied: "No, never. The closest was Adam Lambert on American Idol. He's brilliant. But he was great because he knew who he was as an artist before he went on the show."

Lambert meanwhile has been working on his third album over the last number of months.
