Queen's Legendary Guitarist Brian May Injures "Gluteus Maximus"

72-years old and still rock n rollin' hard. Queen has continued to tour and perform incredible mind-bending shows with American Idol's Adam Lambert until the COVID-19 crisis put a halt on all concerts. If you have ever caught a glimpse of guitarist Brian May on stage you know he goes full-throttle!

Apparently he is the same way at home too! The guitarist God has just updated his fans on Instagram as to what the heck happened.

Brian May of Queen performs during the Fire Fight Australia bushfire relief concert in Sydney, Sunday, February 16, 2020.

In the caption of a post of Brian in a hospital, he said "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."

You read that right! While gardening he tore his butt muscles! OUCH!

"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."

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. Bri

Fairly active on social media, Brian warned that he would be silent for some time while he recovers and implored his fans to give him some peace. Legend Brian May is quite silly and strong so hopefully, he recovers quickly!
