Brian May Injured While Gardening


Queen‘s Brian May has been hospitalized — luckily not for any pandemic-related issue; he actually just hurt his tushie.

The guitarist admits he “can’t walk or sleep” after over-stretching in the garden.

May uploaded video of himself in a hospital, adding 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…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. 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.”

May was also laid up at the end of 2019 following calf surgery to ease his Achilles tendon pain but he was back onstage with Queen bandmate Roger Taylor and singer Adam Lambert in January
