He Had To Be Taken To The Hospital

Queen guitarist Brian May has been fairly active on social media during the pandemic – sharing tutorial and a series of micro concerts. But aside from connecting with fans virtually, he apparently tends to his garden too. And after he went MIA on social media for a few days, he then posted about his butt injury following “a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening.” He shared an update about the incident and assured fans that it doesn’t have anything to do with coronavirus.

The 72-year old rock icon shared on his Instagram a selfie with the caption: “Reality check ! For me. No – the Virus didn’t get me yet – thank God. Hope you’re all keeping extra-safe out there. A decision to relax controls doesn’t suddenly make the danger go away. But me ?? Yes, I’ve been quiet. Reason ? As well as getting over-stretched and harassed by too many demands … I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening.”

He continued, “So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself. Turns out I did a thorough job – this is a couple of days ago – and I won’t be able to walk for a while … or sleep, without a lot of assistance, because the pain is relentless. So, folks … I need to go dark for a while, getting some complete rest, at home. Please, please don’t send me sympathy – I just need some healing silence for a while. I’ll be back – but I need the complete break. OK ? Thanks. Take care out there. Bri”

Even though he promised to go on hiatus, he has since posted a couple of updates on his page.

A few weeks ago, May, Roger Taylor, and Adam Lambert officially released the lockdown version of the Queen classic “We Are The Champions. All proceeds will be donated to the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
