May heaped praise on the younger singer, who shot to fame as runner-up on American Idol.
May said: “Adam is style, and that’s not to say he’s not content as well. “
He’s a born rock star and frontman, so it’s a very vibrant relationship we have with him.
“We treat Adam exactly the same as we treated Freddie in almost every way.”
And then the guitarist said something quite extraordinary, that perhaps not all Queen fans will agree with.
