QUEEN’s BRIAN MAY ‘Can’t Walk Or Sleep’ After Ripping Buttock Muscles

Brian May Live 2015

QUEEN guitarist Brian May says that he “can’t walk or sleep” after ripping his gluteus maximus muscle during a session of “over-enthusiastic gardening.”

He issued the following health update via Instagram post, saying: “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. 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.”
