Many fans thought Wham! star Michael had been offered the gig, but Taylor tells Classic Rock George would never have been a good fit as Queen’s frontman.
“I remember hearing the rumours but it wouldn’t have suited us,” the drummer sayid. “George wasn’t really used to working with a live band. When he heard the power he had behind him in rehearsal, he couldn’t believe it. He thought he was on Concorde or something.”
American Idol star Adam Lambert currently serves as Queen’s lead singer.
