Queen and Adam Lambert make a dedicated to frontline workers


Brian May, Roger Taylor and Lambert recently gathered virtually to record a new version of the Queen classic, We Are the Champions. You Are the Champions was released on all streaming and download services, with proceeds going to the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. “I thought, this is a great way to use the legacy that we have to do some good in the world,” May said. “You know, we don’t really need to make money anymore. We don’t need to be any more famous. We need to use what we have in the best possible way.” For May the release comes at a time of great sadness. The guitarist earlier this week lost a friend who he likened was like a brother to him, to the virus. “That’s the closest it’s come to me physically,” he said, adding it’s given real meaning to the death tolls broadcast daily on television.
