The documentary was very nice
11 June 2020 | by corneliusrozSee all my reviews

Iove the whole idead of the documentary being made just to show how much people don't know that Queen and Adam Lambert didn't came from thin air. They have worked hard to get here. As an Adam Lambert fan for 3 years i never had heard Queen because i was born in 1999 and outside US. Even my parents didn't knew them. Their music would've been completely unknown to me if it wasn't for Adam Lambert joining and creating magic with the greatest guitarist and amazing drummer of an iconic band. People still hates on Adam but i thoroughly believe if Adam wasn't there working hard to give the feels of the amazing queen catalogue of songs we the new generation and future ones would've never get that essence. Adam Lambert is the greatest singer in the world
