The 72-year-old legendary guitarist Brian May, best known for his epic efforts with the rock band Queen, has just contacted fans through his social media and talked about the current state of him.

After the sudden announcement shared on May 7, Brian May revealed that he injured his “Gluteus Maximus” and that he was hospitalized a couple of weeks. He stated about the first week of his injuring that he had suffered quite a lot of pain and had difficulty walking.

Recently, the successful musician shared an Instagram video and added the following letter for his state of health: “I’ve got some great help with pain management and rehabilitation. Today I can sit and potter slowly around holding on to things with almost no pain.

“It’s incredible what real pain does to you. I’ve always been a bit of a big shot about my tolerance to pain levels – like not getting Novocaine jabs at the dentist or whatever – But this nerve pain which came to inhabit my body about three weeks ago – no, it wasn’t a glute thing after all – has paralysed my brain. I felt it took over my personality. I woke up feeling that somehow the pain WAS me, and I was struggling to get back in my body. And I did give in and take the heavy duty painkillers, and in the end I was in a nightmare world. The only thing to do was kick it all and come out. But I could only do that because I got some great physio help and some osteopathy.

“I’ll tell you the whole story sometime, but for now… happy weekend – I hope everyone of you can find a spot to enjoy the life-giving sunshine. Bri.”

As a response to him, a couple of fans sent their good wishes to him.
