(Classic Rock) Adam Lambert watched as many Freddie Mercury video clips as he could find online before singing with Queen, he's revealed. The American Idol finalist has been performing alongside Brian May and Roger Taylor since 2011. They're currently touring North America then play the UK and Europe in January.

Lambert tells Absolute Radio: "I did some studying. I felt I really needed to. I was pretty familiar with them, but when I first started working with them, that's when I went onto the internet and scoured everything."

He adds a Mercury performance in Montreal stood out. "He's running around in shorts, with no shoes on. Watching him in that zone really made me understand him.

"He just didn't give a sh*t. He was like, 'I'm going to do whatever I want.' I think he kind of defined what a rock star was to me. He doesn't actually care - and he's so fabulous doing it." Read more here.
