Queen Postage Stamps Airbrush Adam Lambert from History

By Gary Cutlack on at

Flamboyant Queen frontman Adam Lambert does not appear on the band's set of stamps revealed by the Royal Mail, which instead focuses on the rock group's back catalogue of novelty smashes from the 1970s.

The postal service is preparing to release eight stamps featuring various Queen album covers of old, stretching all the way back to 1974's release of Queen II and ending with 1991's Innuendo. They must've been struggling for content a little bit, as one of the albums featured is 1981's Greatest Hits. I'll leave you to do the Alan Partridge joke in the comments.

As well as the eight album covers there's an additional set of five more stamps that feature photos of the band and its famed live performances, with individual rocking-out-in-progress images of Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon on offer, plus one of that guy who used to do the singing for a bit. Neil Tennant, was it? [Royal Mail]
