Queen: 'Adam Lambert is More Suited to Band's Music Than Paul Rogers'
In a new interview with Toronto Sun (via Blabbermouth), Brian May and Roger Taylor have stated that they feel Adam Lambert is a better fit for Queen than Free and Bad Company frontman Paul Rogers, who toured with the band between 2004-2009:

"Paul has one of the greatest rock voices but it's more blues- and soul-orientated I would have thought. I would say, with all due respect to Paul, that Adam is more suited to a lot of our material and whereas we had great tours with Paul, I think Adam is more naturally at home with us."

May concurred: "Yeah, I think the styles match more closely in a sense. But we had a great time with Paul, no doubt about it, and it kind of stretched it to a new place and, I think, a thoroughly good experience. But Adam is really ... Like us, he has many, many colors, so we can explore some of those strange excursions that Queen likes to."

Queen's 24-date North American tour with Lambert kicks off on June 19 at Chicago's United Center and winds down on July 28 at Toronto, Ontario's Air Canada Centre.
