Freddie Mercury defined "overtly gay".One more comment: Again I'm a HUGE Queen fan and have been since I was 8. My mostest, favoritist band and Brian May (and his tone) made me want to play guitar. I was quite predisposed to dis-liking Adam Lambert. But wow, the man can freaking *sing* and delivers the songs with total conviction and style. Yeah, he's more overtly "gay" but hey - it fits the style of music and the general vibe of the band doesn't it?
To the Queen lovers but Adam haters - just enjoy the songs and be glad the music is being kept live and alive in total respect, love and obvious joy!
