May says that since the departure of Paul Rodgers (of Bad Company) who fronted the band for five years until 2009 Queen have been open to the possibility of a new vocalist…
“We get a lot of offers to work with other people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing, fronting the band with. She’s not just a singer, she writes her own material. She would like to do something with us.”
Who can imagine her playing the piano with her thigh, screeching “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “We Will Rock You” at the top of her lungs with 60 year-old rock veterans?
I can think of a handful of more appropriate and less high-profile replacements for Freddie Mercury. Mercury was famous for never wanting to overshadow Queen, though he could not always help it. The same would go for Lady Gaga.
