Brian May has revealed that it is a ‘privilege’ to be able to perform on stage with Adam Lambert.

Adam has joined the Queen guitarist and his bandmate, drummer Roger Taylor, in the collaborative effort Queen + Adam Lambert since 2011 – and Brian still has plenty of praise for the American Idol runner-up.

Taking to Instagram, Brian shared a video of Adam singing a cover of the Elvis Presley classic Blue Suede Shoes, after discovering the video through a fan page, and as he hailed the performance ‘stunning’, he admitted he was looking forward to working with him once again.

‘Jeeeez! Just stumbled upon this stunning fragment on a fan site. Is this guy the nuts or what?!!’ he wrote.

‘We’ll have the privilege of working with him again soon – once we get back in the saddle mid January for an audacious long haul around the world. [sic]’

The 72-year-old later questioned if there is ‘another voice quite like this’ in the world, as he later shared another video of Adam – this time singing his hit Closer To You on James Corden’s The Late Late Show.

‘You know – I do sincerely wonder if, in the 7.7 billion people on planet Earth there is another voice quite like this,’ he captioned the video.

‘Wow – reeling from this totally live performance on the James Corden show. And… do you feel like you’re watching a huge orchestral rock show? This stupendous sound is just a voice and piano!!! [sic]’

Fans in the comments seemed to agree with Brian’s statements, as one wrote: ‘Adam is a musical genius.’

‘You are so lucky to have a guy like Adam helping keep your wonderful music alive!’ another wrote.

‘Such a talent! So glad you made him part of your crew!’ another fan chimed in.

Earlier this year, the legendary rocker even admitted that Adam could do ‘all the stuff’ that the late Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury, did.

‘Adam can do all the stuff that Freddie did and more,’ he told Guitar World. ‘It doesn’t matter what you throw at Adam – he can do it.

‘He’s a born exhibitionist. He’s not Freddie, and he’s not pretending to be him, but he has a parallel set of equipment. We treat Adam exactly the same as we treated Freddie in almost every way.’
