Roger Taylor on Queen: 'The band just didn't seem to die'

Queen have admitted that the band has lasted longer than they initially thought.

The group told the January issue of Classic Rock magazine that they planned on calling it quits following the death of iconic singer Freddie Mercury in 1991.

However, the band later reformed with Paul Rodgers and now they have US vocal star Adam Lambert on board.

Speaking ahead of a European tour in early 2015, drummer Roger Taylor said:

"I understand people who say: 'There is no Queen without Freddie. Just leave it be'. Because that's what we felt, following his death. All three of us said: 'Right, that's the end of the band'. But the band just didn't seem to die."

Guitarist Brian May added: "Even though both Roger and I were adamant it was over, it never went away."
