According to Blabbermouth.net, "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert has revealed he "would love" to make an album of original material with legendary British rockers Queen.

Queen's Roger Taylor and Brian May joined forces with Lambert for a series of European dates, including two shows at London, England's Hammersmith Apollo this week.

When asked during a live web chat with Capital FM if he would be interested in recording new material with Queen, Adam replied (see video below), "Yeah, I mean, I would love to work with them in any capacity in the future. I don't think I would turn any offer down. I mean, they're amazing. I don't know what that would be, but hey..."

Lambert said last month that he knows that he can't replace Freddie Mercury in his shows fronting Queen - but he doesn't intend to let anyone down either. He told the Daily Mail that when he performs with the remaining members of Queen, he will learn from the experience.

He said, "We want to keep the music alive and give it an energy that would have made Freddie proud. You can't replace him. But playing with Queen is the best thing that could happen to me. My intention is to pay tribute to Freddie. I'm looking forward to spending time with Brian and Roger. I want to make myself familiar with their more obscure songs and hear some stories from the guys themselves. I'll get my own personal Queen documentary. Working with them is going to be a great honor, but I'm also very keen for people to hear my own music, so who knows what the future will hold?"

    Or maybe "Queen + Adam Lambert", like they toured as...

    Look, I don't mind the tour, because it's OLD Queen songs without Lambert as an ACTUAL member of Queen. But don't make NEW material! Then you're hiring Lambert, and NO ONE wants that!

    I'm gonna be honest here, I would like to hear what they could come up. I think that would be pretty cool, he is a good singer, and it'd be interesting to see how he would write music with Queen. But yeah, they should definitely not release it just s Queen, maybe as Queen + Adam Lambert

    All you guys above, could you perhaps get out of your holes! All UK media and others worldwide raved about QUEEN + Adam Lambert's three(3) (not 2!) sold out shows in London last week. He gives incredible shows, is truly respectful of Freddie's legacy (sang Bohemian Rhapsody in duet with him during the show - AMAZING), and said a zillion times that he wears his OWN shoes, not Freddie's. He killed it in London. Everyone in the audience was enthralled by his performance and his voice.

    But Paul Rodgers is ok. At least Lambert has range.

    His vocal range is incredible. He's more of a Robert Plant type singer than a Freddie IMHO but nobody can say he's a bad singer

    Go **** yourself Adam. Your only impressive factor as a musician is your range. Your showmanship is merely shock value and over-the-top-ness. Bland. You can't write music or lyrics for shit

    for everything that is holy, please DO NOT record with Queen. God will not allow this.

    How did they make a mistake? Jerry was always the second vocalist and the new singer compliments him. Black Gives Way was awesome and sounded perfect.

    I'm all for bands going out and making new music, especially Queen. I think Freddie Mercury would not only be all for it, but I think that he wouldn't want the members of the band to stop using their god given musical and songwriting talents just because he moved along to the next plane. But, maybe not with Adam Lambert. How about that YouTube guy that sounds just like and looks a lot like Freddie?

    Get Mika to record something with them. He has a somewhat Freddie-esque charisma and panache, even if he falls short- but who could ever match Mercury? My issue with Lambert is that he can sing the songs, but he decidedly lacks that ability to pull you into the song by your shoulders and make you feel it.
