All that flossing and stunting and saving the world (like he does in his “Time For Miracles” video) aside, it’s nice to see him get back to basics — back to what made so many folks fall for him in the first place: simply performing. And WELL.
Here we have two clips from Adam Lambert’s recent appearance on VH1 Unplugged. And while he definitely brings a little attitude to the stripped-down proceedings, he really lets his singing voice do the work.
The first clip is a bongo and piano-driven reimagining of “Down The Rabbit Hole,” originally featured on the deluxe version of For Your Entertainment. It’s decidedly different from the razor-sharp, glam-rock studio take of the song.
The second clip is a nice sit-down with Adam, in which he talks about the challenges of performing his rather elaborately produced music in such an intimate, no-frills environment. And watch more live performances at Unplugged.VH1.com.
