Queen drummer Roger Taylor has said that the reception to Adam Lambert fronting Queen has been “fantastic everywhere.”

Taylor, Lambert and guitarist Brian May are gearing up for a series of European dates after touring North America and Australia this year. The Queen + Adam Lambert European tour kicks off January 13 in the United Kingdom and includes stops in Paris, Berlin and Milan.

In speaking to Billboard about several upcoming solo projects (Roger Taylor: best, The Lot), Taylor said the upcoming European tour “will be interesting for Adam, because I think he's more known in the States and places like Australia than he is in Europe.”

“But it's been fantastic everywhere,” he added. “Every night, every place we went, the reception was tremendous and that was a delightful surprise just to think that after all these years we can still go out and do it. But it was great with Adam, I have to say. He really fitted in beautifully.”

Taylor added that a collaboration with Lambert on new music is a possibility.

“I think it would be a very interesting experiment,” he said. “It would be nice to just go in and see what came out. I don't know if it would be an album or anything, but I think it's too good a marriage to just let it go at touring. I'm sure we'll do something. His voice is so extraordinary, and it's a beautiful instrument. I think it would be nice.”
