Thank you to the fans who have supplied the photos and videos that I am able to share in this blog.
It is difficult to believe that already two months have passed since Queen and Adam Lambert performed their three magical shows at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in July 2012.
For those who attended the shows, I feel positive that the memory will forever live in their hearts and minds, as it will for me.
On Wednesday 15 August 2012, Juneau & Xena invited me on their blog talk radio show to talk about my experience of having attended the Queen + Adam Lambert shows in London – thank you both very much for giving me the opportunity to share my experience and for allowing me to indulge my enthusiasm by rabbiting on as I did.
Here is the link to the radio show:
Below follows a rough transcript of my chat with Juneau & Xena:
I’d like to talk about my own experiences at the Queen + Adam shows I attended in London only, so forgive me if I don’t also talk about the shows in Eastern Europe as I wasn’t physically there.
A number of Glamberts came from all over the world to London especially to experience those amazing shows, which they dubbed: Queenbert. And many Queen fans also came from far and wide. But I will try to paint a picture, too, for those who were not there.
First of all I want to say that this is only the third time in my life that I had bought a General Admission ticket to a show and I was feeling apprehensive to say the least. But having been lucky enough to experience a number of Adam’s performances up close, I have become kind of addicted to his energy and knew that I had to get as close to him as I possibly could – a General Admission ticket seemed the most obvious way to achieve my goal.
In part, this new addiction came about because I was extremely fortunate that a Lambrit angel, named Joan, made it possible for me to see Adam performing at his London media showcase in February 2012. And even though I had seen him perform live a few times before then, that experience will forever be seared into my brain, because it took place in such an intimate venue – I stood only five feet away from him – that it felt as though it was a private show just for me, and I am positive that even the most hardened media person there, would have felt the same way.
Adam was incredible that evening. His energy was beyond words, it was a master class in singing and performance, and it was an experience I will treasure for the rest of my days. I failed utterly in my endeavours not to sound like a complete fan-girl in the Sound Bath programme about that adventure, as I am sure those of you who have listened to it, can testify.
Other opportunities to see Adam in London earlier this year presented itself and I was able to attend them all. He performed at The Royal Albert Hall, on the Graham Norton television show and at Heaven – and I can tell you, he was amazing that night too, and I was in Heaven. A new friend, named Neil, dragged me up on the stage and we danced in the exact spot where a few moments later, Adam danced and sang – it was great to look out and see his audience eagerly awaiting him.
Unexpectedly an opportunity also presented itself for me to meet him briefly outside Capital Radio where I was able to gift him a CD with two original songs, inspired by him, which I had created in collaboration with Dr Philippa Semper and Prof Elizabeth Dockrell-Tyler. But who knows if he has time to listen to such things? It is perhaps enough that he might be happy to know he inspires his fans to create all sorts of things, including classical art songs.
I knew of course that his performances with Queen would be something different and very special, and as if we needed confirmation, the videos from the Eastern European shows, that wonderful Glamberts who attended those shows posted on YouTube, proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
I have been a huge Queen fan for thousands of years, but sadly never had the opportunity to see them perform live, and I adore Brian, whom I have met before, and Roger too, and wanted to be close enough to see their facial expressions also.
And boy, was I lucky! I won two early entry tickets for the first show and bought a seated ticket for the second show from Tina, a wonderful Lambrit. And due to work commitments suddenly being cancelled, and being gifted a General Admission ticket at the last minute by the fantastic London Glambert, @jeanjenie, together with another early entry ticket for the third night presented me by two Canadian Glamberts I had met in Canada last year, my Queen and Adam Lambert experience could not have been bettered.
The lovely Lambrit, Lucy, accepted my second early entry ticket for the first show, and so on the morning of the 11th, we duly arrived at Hammersmith Apollo to be greeted by the sight of loads of fans having queued and slept there overnight. The area in front of the venue presented a colourful plastic sea of sheets to guard against the cold, wet pavements, umbrellas of all sizes and colours, and believe it or not, even a tent or two. The weather was awful – raining one moment, blowing gales the next. I felt really sorry for them, especially as the early entry queue was closer to the building, so at least we were out of the rain that came pouring down periodically throughout the day.
There were other Glamberts in our queue too, but the majority of queuees were dedicated Queen fans and we could hear them talking about Adam and voicing their doubts about what he would be like as a singer with Queen. Some of the guys were drinking beer and as the alcohol took effect, they started becoming more verbal as to whether a mere pop singer like Adam, could do justice to the music. They apparently did not think he could even hold a candle to Paul Rodgers, and on and on they went…
I have to say that I never worry for Adam – he is a consummate professional with an entrenched foundation in stage craft, an unshakable vocal technique, superior performance skills, and the biggest, most tangible stage presence I have ever experienced, not to mention the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. He has the ability to win over any audience by mesmerizing them, making them feel safe and by charming them out of real time and into Adam time, which is always over way too soon. And he can be quite fierce and fiery when he wants to be, so I am positive he can defend himself perfectly when he needs to. But by that stage, I was beginning to feel a twinge of alarm on Adam’s behalf.
Lucy and I wanted to say something, but did not dare as alcohol and debate do not usually make for good playmates.
But suddenly, however, a great opportunity presented itself when one of the guys – the one most verbally scornful of Adam, as it happens – walked past bearing a big Freddie and Montserrat Caballe poster. I stopped him and said that I liked the poster, which he subsequently gifted me. He pointed out that Freddie sang with an opera singer because he was that good. I replied that Adam had sung opera arias himself, and that I do, too. His face was a picture. “Really?” he said, “Sing something then!”
Now, normally I would NEVER do this – my voice was not warmed-up, I had talked all night at the Adamtopia party the previous night and had had about four hours sleep, but I could see that they might stop judging Adam before they had even heard him sing if perhaps I could convince them that he is to be taken seriously as a singer. So I took a deep breath and sang the first few bars of Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro, supposedly the most well-known opera tune in the world, so figured the Queen fan might recognize it even if he was not necessarily familiar with opera – I am well aware that opera is not everyone’s cup-of-tea, so to speak.
Then something extraordinary happened: As I was singing, I saw the guy’s eyes getting bigger and bigger, and I could see goosebumps creeping up all over his arms and up his neck – something I had never seen before. Then he started crying! This big, tattooed, fierce-looking guy! His wife cried too as did some other Queen fans around us. And a hush fell over the big queue, which I had not expected, and then burst into applause when I stopped singing. The guy hugged me and cried tears in my neck and all over my shirt, saying things like: “Thank you, that was beautiful. I can’t believe it. I’ve never experienced anything like it and just here, right in front of me!” And so on. I guess most people do not ever experience operatic voices singing right next to them, so it might be overwhelming to hear, I suppose.
But his transformation from belligerence to adoring fan-boy was so complete and surprising, I almost forgave him for the naughty things he had said about Adam!
Then I told him that if he thought I was good, he was in for the experience of a life-time because Adam is roughly 1000% better than me. I could see he was not sure whether I was joking or not, but at least for the rest of the day, no more mean comments about Adam came from him or his mates.
It is hard to choose my favourite from the three shows – most likely because I stood right by the stage for the first and also for the last one, both stood out, but that first show will live inside my mind forever – it was breathtaking and Adam was a mystical rock god being.
Inside the venue the atmosphere was almost tangible with anticipation but from where I stood, the audience seemed split into two – the Queen fans and the Glamberts – each group of fans focussed on seeing their own idols. The pre-show music made me long for the pre-show music during Adam’s Glam Nation tour, but soon enough, the well-known tones of Queen’s ‘Flash’ – the intro to the show – unleashed a deafening roar of excitement from the waiting audience. And I have to admit, the drama of that music was perfect for heightening further the expectation and setting the scene for what was to come.
Next we could see the unmistakable figure of Adam behind the curtain and the Glamberts went wild. An unforgettable, poignantly historic moment for all of us.
As always, seeing Adam up close is a remarkable thing, but even more so when he is performing, because he always seems so much taller and somehow bigger in every way than expected, and like a piece of living art he is so extraordinarily beautiful, he takes your breath away, even before you experience his extraordinary voice.
To the Queen fans who had perhaps never seen him before, that first show would already have been amazing, as his voice enchanted us through the well-known songs like Seven Seas of Rhye, We Will Rock You, Fat Bottom Girls, Don’t Stop Me Now, and his moving duet with Roger in Under Pressure. But for the Glamberts who know him, he would have seemed perhaps a little restrained – I can only imagine he must have had a slight concern as to how the Queen fans would receive him – as a performer myself, I know that would have been foremost in my thoughts.
I Want It All, Somebody To Love and Adam’s astonishing version of Who Wants To Live Forever followed, killing us all with his interpretation and that voice!
Here is an amazing video of Adam singing Who Wants To Live Forever, edited by Pumpkin Priest, using seven different fan video shots taken on the last night:
We are already familiar with the beauty and power of Adam’s voice and his astonishing ability to nuance phrases in unexpected ways that further touch his audience to their core – seemingly individually – but what he did with Who Wants To Live Forever, was beyond anything I had ever experienced. He pulled my soul right out of my body and I do not mind telling you that I sobbed like a baby during the song.
The way in which Adam sang this song, transcends the commonsense interpretation of the lyrics and music, because it seemed – to me at least – as though he was singing about this reality and one beyond it simultaneously, taking the song to a place I’ve never experienced before. And I know I am not alone in this experience, because Brian alluded to it also in an interview, saying he was quite overwhelmed during rehearsals because he had never experienced anything like Adam singing this song.
This may be the perfect opportunity to say something about the long phrase he sang using only one breath, as I have received a number of questions about it. I feel sometimes people forget that Adam is actually a trained singer and that singing long phrases is something trained singers, in particular, do all the time – listen to any opera aria, oratorio or art song and you will hear it – so I am not sure it was a particularly long breath for Adam especially, but it was unusual in the sense that very few other pop/rock singers may be able to do it. What it proves, however, is that despite him going off and experimenting with more specifically pop sounding techniques as he does on his second album, Trespassing for example, he has not discarded his vocal technique at all – it is still there, intact, and he can call upon it whenever he feels like it.
He may have been showing off a little – and who can blame him with a vocal instrument and technique like that – but there is no doubt that by joining the phrase together like that, he enhanced the art of the song superbly. And as I have said previously, this song reminds so much of the structure of an operatic aria, so what he did was entirely appropriate.
I will talk more about this song and how Adam sang it in an upcoming Sound Bath programme about Adam’s voice.
By the way, the big tattoed guy who cried in my neck stood roughly opposite me and when I looked up, he too was crying and mouthing OMG to me!
Another thing to mention about this song is that because of the aria-like structure, it does what all good arias do: kills the singer so that when the last note – invariable the highest note in the aria – comes around, often preceded by quite a high tessitura, the singer is too exhausted to sing it properly, but on the last night, Adam more than nailed that high D!
In fact, it is something I have noticed he seems to like doing: usually when it is the last night of a performance and he has not got to sing for a little while, he lets rip and boy, did he do that during the last show – on all levels!
Another element Adam used in this song, we also saw him using when he sang Soaked – being very still and silent before delivering the final tender phrase – doing that heightens the drama of those songs wonderfully and Queen, being no strangers to drama themselves, were clearly more than happy to go along with Adam, because you can hear them waiting for him to start singing again before joining in at the end.
Talking about Queen being happy – it was wonderful to see the joy on that stage and the camaraderie and respect shared between Adam and the members of Queen. I spoke to a number of Queen fans who said that they had never seen Brian or Roger look that happy before. And is it any wonder? We were in the presence of greatness, weren’t we? And I guess Queen and Adam must have felt that way too. (An excellent case perhaps for proving the whole being greater than the sum of its parts?)
Roger’s voice was also still wonderful and it was pure joy and very moving listening to him singing the songs I have loved for so long.
Here Roger sings These Are The Days Of Our Lives on 11 July 2012, uploaded to YouTube by a1999f:
And I became very tearful once again during Brian’s amazing rendition of Love Of My Life, which he performed right in front of me as I stood by the side of the little catwalk that extended out into the audience, especially since that was the only time he did it – during the next two shows he stayed on the stage for that song. It was a particularly magical experience as Brian started to play the music and sang the first few bars before the entire audience sang with him and then a huge projection of Freddie on the back wall of the stage, completed the song.
This is Brian singing Love Of My Life on the first night, 11 July 2012, uploaded to YouTube by hippiutube:
I adored Adam’s costume changes as much as I am sure he did! It was particularly clear that he was deeply in love with the red jacket he wore during Dragon Attack – such a fab song!
Here is Dragon Attack on the last night, 14 July 2012, uploaded to YouTube by riddle601b:
Very cleverly, Adam also chose the song I Want To Break Free to literally break free from the stage on the last two nights, when he most likely felt more accepted and comfortable with the Queen fans. He jumped off the little catwalk and ran his hand along the audiences’ outstretched hands as he made his way back towards the far end of the stage. But the first time he did it, he must have misjudged the distance from the raised catwalk to the floor and split open his leather trousers, then hilariously spent the rest of the song creating a showcase for the split trousers – indicating that he was breaking free even from his trousers. It did not stop him from doing it again during the last show, though, to the unbridled joy of the audience, but this time the trousers were intact and stairs had been provided for him with stage hands helping him to get down and up on stage again.
This video of the song and the split-trouser-episode was uploaded to YouTube by riddle601b:
By the third night, when Adam did it again, the Queen fans behind me nearly climbed over me to get to Adam – they were as completely taken with him as the Glamberts are, it seemed. They pressed in towards the stage so much, in any case, that several people around us fainted and had to be carried out.
Adam’s enjoyment of singing Another One Bites The Dust, Radio Gaga and Crazy Little Thing Called Love was almost tangible. And just like a classical singer darting from style to style during a recital, Adam switched gears for each song, including the operatic rock song, The Show Must Go On, which seems as though it had been crafted specifically for his voice.
This is his rendition of The Show Must Go On from 14 July, uploaded to YouTube by riddle601b
All around me I heard the astonishment in the voices of Queen fans as they talked about how remarkable it was that Adam could sing the songs so convincingly even though he had had no part in creating them. It made my toes curl from joy, because it is yet another testament to the classically trained singer and accomplished musician and artist that Adam is.
I have spoken about this in one of my own programmes, but I would like to reiterate again, that the way in which Adam sings The Show Must Go On, is remarkable not only because the song fits his voice like a glove, but because here especially, we experience very clearly how perfectly Adam tunes verbalised consonants and how he sings phrases through the music – all may seem subtle, but it makes a huge difference to the end product and elevates the song into a realm of professionalism, not so easily achievable perhaps by other singers. The song seems so poignantly appropriate to him specifically also.
I find the way in which he sings the following lyrics particularly heartbreaking:
The show must go on, yeah!
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on
And in this song, it seemed to me as though Adam’s voice and Brian’s guitar swirled around each other in a particularly perfect and effective emotive duet – pure magic!
Of course, a show featuring Queen and Adam could not be, without the inclusion of Bohemian Rhapsody – a full circle moment for Adam who sang it at his first audition for American Idol, at which time Adam was apparently brought to Roger’s attention. So this song was most likely the significant factor in subsequent partnerships between Queen and Adam, and the foundation for the existence of these shows.
Again, Freddie appeared hugely projected to sing the song, and ended with phrases being alternated between him and Adam. Usually by this stage the noise from the audience was deafening, but if we are able to focus only on Adam’s and Freddie’s voices, we will be able to hear a remarkable thing: Adam seemed to be able to tune his voice to Freddie’s so that at first we are not sure who is singing which line, Freddie or Adam – a very subtle but clever element and the fusion of two remarkable singers and performers.
I know Adam is not the new Queen front-man but it felt to me like a kind of blessing and handing over from Freddie to Adam as the last phrase was sung by Adam – it was another very emotional moment!
This is Bohemian Rhapsody from 14 July, uploaded to YouTube by
A fantastic end to the best shows I have seen so far!
Of course the audience would not let them go, so they had to come back to sing three more songs: Tie Your Mother Down, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions. These songs are such rock anthems, that the entire audience was singing along, jumping up and down and an outpouring of such energy as I have never ever experienced, not even during the Glam Nation Tours, nearly lifted the roof off the Apollo. No wonder then that after the shows, people were walking out, looking dazed with silly grins on their faces. It was such a euphoric experience.
I just have to add too that it was wonderful when I had my seated experience on the second night, because I could hear the audience singing along more clearly and it was such an incredible wall of vocal sound – what a magical thing, the human vocal instrument.
Adam’s execution of the songs was very dramatic and he interpreted Queen’s music flawlessly. But what struck me powerfully, was how he adapted his performance to their brand of drama, which included pyrotechnics and flames coming out of the stage, which you could feel even up in the balcony, and which added to the already sweltering environment. But this is where Adam’s experience on the musical theatre stage and his acting skills came into their own – I really cannot think of any other singer with the voice and abilities to do what Adam did, and that is the reason that these shows were such a brilliant partnership. No wonder then that Brian thanked Adam each night, and deliberately pointed out that without him, the shows would not have been possible.
I tend to agree with Brian and how lucky we all are that this amazing music can once again live in the world.
I still cannot believe I was lucky enough to be there on all three nights and I am crossing body parts that they do more of these shows in the future.

Not everyone feels comfortable being recorded, however, and another wonderful Queen fan, Gary Smith, whom I met at Hammersmith Apollo on the second night, preferred instead to let me print his interview:
Angelina: How long have you been a Queen fan?
Gary: I have been a fan since 1975 really when a lot of people first heard A Night At The Opera. I joined the queen fan club in 1976 and have been a member now for 36 years. In this time, queen have cost me a small fortune, but they have been worth every penny for the big part of my life they have become, and the joy and pleasure such a unique and gifted band has given to me.
Angelina: Have you ever seen Queen live?
Gary: I was fortunate enough to have seen Queen live 9 times with Freddie, the first time being at Southampton Gaumont in 1976, then Wembley arena 3 times, 4 times on the crazy tour and their final gig at Knebworth. I also went to Freddie’s tribute gig at Wembley, then saw Queen + Paul Rodgers at Wembley pavilion and the 02 arena where I managed to get the set list from Brian & Roger’s side stage black tent! And lastly of course, the 1st & 3rd night of the recent Hammersmith Apollo gigs.
It has to be said that I have through the Queen fan club, managed to get some magnificent seats for many of these gigs.
I have also been to many of Brian & Rogers solo gigs and night two of the gigs at the marquee in London in 1993 I believe, when both Brian & Roger played.
Angelina: Have you ever met any of Queen’s members?
Gary: I have met Roger once and shook his hand. This was in the Marquee café after the Marquee club gig in 1993.
Roger came walking past us with Debbie Leng, but we never approached him until later when he and Debbie walked past us to leave – then I thought that’s it – I’m not going to miss this opportunity and we briefly spoke with him and Debbie shook his hand and wished him a happy Christmas. Before leaving, he did a signing session at a table for the people they had let in from outside, so I got in the queue and also got him to sign the set list I had also managed to get from the gig. He was quite bemused he was signing it already!
I also have a pair of Rogers drum sticks, and he once send us a signed picture from the slightly mad sessions to my home address to thank us for a birthday card we had sent him. Can you imagine that? Receiving mail in your post from Roger Taylor!
Angelina: What did you think of Paul Rodgers performing with Queen?
Gary: I thought Paul Rodgers did a very good and credible job singing for Queen – it worked!
However, I wasn’t so keen on the Free songs diluting the show or the Cosmos album which for me only had one Queen song on it, C-elebrity.
Angelina: Which of the Queen and Adam Lambert shows did you attend?
Gary: I attended the first night upstairs and on the last night stood right at the front Brian May’s side having been one of 100 to be let in early via the queen fan club. Being so close to the gig was amazing as was the energy and joy between the audience and stage. The light show was incredible as was the clever use of the video screens and the superb integration of Freddie into the show – I felt after, that it was the best gig I had ever been to!
Angelina: Had you heard of Adam Lambert before he sang with Queen?
Gary: Only that he was to be Queen’s next singer and I’d heard he had come second on American pop idol and had also sung with Kiss.
As for filling Freddie’s shoes, I personally thought he was superb all round. His vocals were powerful with much range, and his command of the stage and audience was excellent – he wasn’t phased by anything. He has the looks of Elvis (in fact he also looks not to dissimilar to Freddie in many ways) and had great stage wear.
He really looked comfortable and you could see he felt part of Queen and you could see Brian & Roger loved him being part of Queen.
What also struck me is that he also has a unique quality that Freddie had which to my mind is one where whilst performing the level of passion and consciousness is on a different level. It’s as though they are on a different plain to us, and something I’ve rarely seen in any performer, but Adam has “it” as well!
I don’t know if it’s something he does to focus, but 4-5 times throughout the show, Adam looked directly at me in the eye whilst singing for about 10 seconds, maybe he picks someone out to do this for some reason?
Long may he be Queen’s singer and also to record with them would be very exciting too.
Angelina: As you have been a Queen fan for so long, you must have some amazing stories to share with us?
Gary: I recently meet a friend of my sisters who used to live next door to John Deacon in the Leicester area when she was a teenager before Queen had hit the big time and she said she remembers how they would all turn up and rehearse there! She could hear them through her bedroom wall! and on other occasions she would be in the house with them and said Freddie’s voice used to fill the room.
Angelina: Did you ever meet Freddie?
Gary: No, but I met Peter Freestone, Freddie’s personal assistant, at his hotel in Torquay once where he had a bar there with much Queen memorabilia – a very nice and friendly man who once said “ I would do anything for you, Freddie”
And when in Ibiza on holiday in the late nineties, we visited Hotel Pikes where Freddie used to stay and had his 40th birthday party – there were pictures of Freddie in reception, bare topped playing tennis and Freddie’s room was called the Bungalow.
We spoke to the owner there who spoke very fondly about Freddie and said that he once took Freddie out on his speed boat to Formentera, I believe, one afternoon and that Freddie really enjoyed it including piloting the boat!
Freddie’s real name was Farrokh Bulsara. Over the years there have been countless mis-spellings of his first name due to unclear handwriting on his birth certificate – but if anyone should know the correct spelling it’s Freddies mum Jer who wrote a preface in a Queen book spelling it as Farrokh – so that’s good enough for me.
I am the proud registered owner of the website domain name www.farrokhbulsara.co.uk
By the way, did you know that if you count every track listing from the first Queen album through to A Night At The Opera that the song 39 is also the 39th track! Was this planned or coincidence?
Thank you, Gary, for sharing with us your great stories about Queen and Freddie.

But as our Skype connection on the day was unfortunately not very clear, I have been able to use only a small part of our chat and because of the sound quality making what he says a little difficult to hear, here is the transcript of his interview:
Angelina: Thanks for talking to me – I really appreciate it. I just wanted to ask you a few questions about when you came to England – did you come just to see Queen?
Roy: Yes, I came to London to all three concerts and I enjoyed it – it was a good experience.
I saw your question you’d messaged me – “how long have you been a Queen fan?” Thirty years, from 1982 – I was just 12 years old – so a Queen fan for thirty years.
Angelina: Have you seen Queen before?
Roy: I have never seen the real Queen or Freddie Mercury, but I went to Queen plus Paul Rogers, twenty six concerts, and Brian May and Roger Tayler’s solo concerts, but I’ve never seen Freddie Mercury.
Angelina: You love Freddie?
Roy: Yes, of course!
Angelina: I saw your picture in the newspaper.
Roy: Oh yes, the newspaper, yes I got it.
Angelina: What did you think of Adam Lambert?
Roy: Adam Lambert – yes, I liked it because his voice is so good. Adam is a different singer. I think Adam Lambert is outstanding.
Freddie Mercury could write great songs, his performances were great and his voice was good, and Adam Lambert’s voice is good – I like it.
I have been to an Adam Lambert solo concert in 2010 in Japan and this month he came to Japan and had mini gigs – I went, in Tokyo.
Angelina: And did you like it?
Roy: Yes, I liked it – it was a different show. Queen plus Adam Lambert is all Queen songs, but Adam Lambert’s mini concert is Adam’s songs – four songs from his second album. I like his second album.
Angelina: Paul Rodgers or Adam?
Roy: Of course Adam. Paul Rodgers is not so bad, but he is a Rock Blues singer. I think Adam is a better Queen singer.
Roy: Queen plus Paul Rodgers concert is Queen songs and Paul Roger’s songs, but Queen plus Adam Lambert is all Queen songs.
Angelina: Did you know about Adam before he sang with Queen?
Roy: Yes, I know of him from American Idol auditions. First he sang Bohemian Rhapsody. So many Queen fans knew of him. He was singing a cappella…such a beautiful voice. So many Queen fans are: “Oh, he sang Bohemian Rhapsody – I like Adam Lambert!” (laugh)…like that! And then Brian May and Roger Taylor with Adam Lambert and another person – I don’t know the name – performed We Are The Champions. I think Adam is a good singer. I like this project. I think now Adam is bigger and has big pressure but he made it.
Angelina: Thank you!
Thank you very much to Donna, Gary and Roy for sharing their thoughts and experiences with us and for helping to make this blog more interesting and exciting!
