Adam Lambert recently (Feb. 2017) spent time recording at Pink Satellite Studios near Palm Springs, CA, (in the Joshua Tree area), co-owned by Spike Edney, musical director & keyboardist for the legendary and iconic rock group Queen, of which Adam has been a valued member & frontman since first meeting and performing with original Queen members Dr. Brian May & Roger Taylor at the American Idol Finale in 2009.
In this new article, “Abbey Road Warrior” Spike mentions that he alerted Brian & Roger when he saw Adam performing on American Idol Season 8 (*see the selected quotes below). And of course, the rest is history!

Adam Lambert, who is currently working on his 4th major solo album, and will tour with Queen again this year, in the US, Canada, and most recently announced by Dr. May, in Europe and UK, (more info HERE) is in one of the featured photos, captioned:
“Adam Lambert’s future is so bright he’s got to wear shades as he takes in the view from the vintage Silver Streak trailer outside Pink Satellite Studios.”
*A few excerpts/quotes from the informative & extensive article linked above
The music scene’s latest hideout has hatched overnight 144 miles from Hollywood. Pink Satellite Studios sits on 10 private acres of secluded, Joshua tree–studded land. Its open expanse of pristine terrain looks out to Ritz-Carlton–style vistas. The moment your SUV limo chauffeur begins to question the driving directions, a silver bullet trailer glints in the sun and a hot pink house waves hello.
Co-founder Chris Haines knows all about that. To sit down with this 15-time Baja 1000 champion would be a dream for some. To sit down with counterpart and co-founder Spike Edney, musical director and keyboardist for Queen since 1984, would be a dream for the other half of the world. Two illustrious worlds collide inside their state-of-the-art recording studio.
Edney’s projects include forming his own all-stars group and preparing for the upcoming Queen and Adam Lambert tour. Fronted by Lambert, the American Idol front-runner-turned-platinum-artist, their summer tours have sold out arenas worldwide the last two years. Edney emailed his Queen bandmates from his Joshua Tree cabin the moment he saw Lambert on Idol. As a solo artist, Lambert is writing and recording for his fourth album. (The remote location goes hand in hand with Lambert’s aptly titled smash single “Ghost Town” on his latest album The Original High.) The new studio and the natural setting of the desert getaway were good medicine for a touring megastar and a muse for his new material.
