History is written only when it is revealed and those events always come many years after its creation.
This is what happens when those who have been involved in history decide to break their silence and reveal all the events of the past.
After the death of Freddie Mercury, Queen made several live appearances with various singers.
Their collaboration with Paul Rodgers is considered the longest-running and they even recorded an album with him, “The Cosmos Rocks“.
Since 2012, however, the band has appeared under the name Queen & Adam Lambert.
The fans of the band, who applauded this collaboration, probably really like it.
But as some revelations show, things could have turned out differently.
Taking a proper turn of events, we go back to 2001, when Robbie Williams recorded a new version of “We Are the Champions“, along with Roger Taylor and Brian May.
The purpose was musically dressing the movie “A Knight’s Tales” with Heath Ledger.
This was taken into account by the SiriusXM Volume journalist when in an interview with the former member of Take That, he asked him if he had the ambition to join the band.
To the journalist’s surprise, he replied that he did have such a proposal from the remaining musicians of the legendary rock band.
In the end, he did not benefit from this honor!
He specifically replied: “Yes, I was asked about a collaboration.
Although I feel comfortable with the microphone, in this proposition I had a problem with my self-confidence.
I thought I would look very small in their eyes trying to get into the role that Freddie Mercury created.
Because for me it was just unique, as a divine entity. It was just too scary for me.”
The musician also revealed that at that time he was on a big tour and did not want to lose his concentration on it.
As for the current Queen singer, Adam Lambert, Williams said that “his voice is fantastic. He is a great showman and at the same time a very pleasant person.”
The point for an artist is to make the right decisions at the right time.
In essence, Williams‘ musical personality, no matter how brilliant it may be, could easily fade under the flare of these rock legends.
He probably took that into account by himself, and he did well.
