Queen guitarist Brian May has praised singer Adam Lambert as “amazing.”

Lambert fronted for the British band Queen in a series of highly successful European shows in 2012.

They performed stateside in September at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

In an interview with BBC Radio 2, May discussed upcoming plans for the band.

“We are ongoing, because we can't help it,” May said. “I think we all protested too much in the sense when Freddie [Mercury] went and we didn't want to talk about it and didn't want to be Queen for a while. But after a while you realize that people wanna hear the songs and see us do things. So, no matter what you call it, Roger [Taylor] and I do do stuff and I think we'll be doing some more stuff this summer in fact, probably in the States.”

“We've been talking to Adam Lambert,” May said of a possible frontman. “You know we've already done some gigs with Adam, who's amazing.”
