Queen And Adam Lambert Perform “We Are The Champions” In Lockdown
They Tweaked It A Bit
Queen + Adam Lambert are the latest rock acts to modify the lyrics to their classic hits for their at-home performance. In this stripped-down number, they did a lockdown version of the 1977 track “We Are The Champions” which they shared on their social media accounts last Monday. And instead of “We”, they changed it to “You.” As you can see in the split-screen clip, it’s far from perfect but it’s moving all the same.
Guitarist Brian May wrote on his website: “I guess I kinda burned myself out on the micro concerts and tracks I’ve been doing for other worthy causes, and I feel like I’ve been fighting a wave of dismay this last couple of days, so I’ve been a little quiet.
Hopefully I’ll be on it again soon. Right now I need to get my mojo back. But meanwhile, I do have something distinctly eyebrow-raising to share. #youarethechampions.”
May has maintained his online presence during the COVID-19 outbreak. He’s been doing some mini concerts and even he even shared an instructional video on how to play the iconic guitar solo in “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Plus, he’s been urging everyone to self-isolate and basically do their part in helping contain the coronavirus.
