So long Freddie Mercury and step aside Paul Rodgers! Queen is moving in a different direction…

Since the passing of Freddie Mercury in 1991, Paul Rodgers has filled in for occasional duty. However, Brian May would like something a bit more permanent so Queen can return to touring.
His solution? Lady Gaga.
“We talk about going out on the road all the time but there’s a bit of a singer problem to put it mildly. We get a lot of offers to work with other people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing, fronting the band with. She’s not just a singer, she writes her own material.”
Whether it’s Lady Gaga or some nationwide search to find the next Freddie Mercury, Queen is dead set on finding their next frontman, or woman.
“We have talked about doing duets with other people and in a strange way I almost pressed the yes button. We were debating the idea of a TV show where we have all these guest stars. We didn’t press it today but we are still looking at it. Lady Gaga has said she would like to do something with us.”
Expressing a sense of urgency in finding a new singer, it seems like Lady Gaga would be May’s first choice.
And if they did, it wouldn’t be the first time Lady Gaga & Brian May collaborated
