Queen's Brian May reveals to Yahoo that Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin’s unusual but beautiful love story will be a prominent storyline in the eight-years-in-the-making Mercury biopic, "Bohemian Rhapsody," which will be directed by Bryan Singer and is expected to come out in December 2018.
In "Queen in 3-D," Queen's Brian May writes candidly about singer Freddie Mercury’s struggles with the media, comparing his experience to the very different experience of current Queen frontman Adam Lambert, who is able to live in the spotlight as an openly gay man in a way that Mercury sadly never could.
The Queen biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' "is finally happening" with Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the band announced Friday.
“I think there’s been talk that I’m going to be a judge [on American Idol] every year since I’ve been off the show,” chuckles Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert, when he’s asked about recent rumors that he’ll be joining his pal and Direct Management roster-mate Katy Perry behind the judges’ table on ABC’s Idol reboot. “I don’t know where this talk comes from! I don’t think I’m going to be a judge on American Idol. Lambert is forever grateful for his Idol experience (“I owe the show the world,” he says), but the man hardly has time to commit to a regular TV gig right now.
Queen guitarist Brian May revealed Freddie Mercury lost most of his foot before the frontman died in 1991.
On Season 8 of American Idol, Adam Lambert battled Kris Allen. And, while he put up a noble fight — and got to sing with his future band, Queen, on the big finale — he didn’t win the show. This week, almost eight years later, Lambert faced off against another worthy opponent. And his time (spoiler alert!), he emerged victorious. He is the champion, my friends.
Legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, one of the greatest and most charismatic rock performers of all time, died 25 years ago, on Nov. 24, 1991. The official cause of death was bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS. Mercury would have turned 70 years old this year. As tribute, Yahoo Music has obtained these photos and an exclusive excerpt from Somebody to Love: The Life, Death and Legacy of Freddie Mercury by Matt Richards & Mark Langthorne, which comes out Nov. 22.

The band is releasing their much-bootlegged 1975 London Hammersmith BBC broadcast as Queen – A Night at the Odeon – Hammersmith this holiday season and Rolling Stone caught up with Brian May to reminisce over the iconic, generation-crossing hit.

Adam Lambert has been belting Queen’s songs for the past three years, all the while keeping his solo career separate from his stadium-rock side gig. Normally a club banger with a chilled-out ‘90s house vibe, with Queen the song was transformed into an audacious '70s rock anthem, with Brian May’s distinctively fiery guitar licks replacing the familiar whistling hook. This marked the first time that Lambert, who met Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor when he sang with them at the Season 8 American Idol finale six years ago, had performed his own material at a Queen gig.
Queen have launched a new app, Queen: Play the Game, that allows fans to win various prizes through quizzes and puzzles while exploring the band's history through archival images and re-sampled sounds from their extensive catalog of music.
There’s a good reason why Raheem DeVaughn’s photo doesn’t appear on the cover of his latest album. It dates back to his days working for legendary music retailer Tower Records.
