Yesterday, Queen guitarist Brian May shared a snap of himself in hospital, revealing he had had an operation ahead of his 2020 tour with Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert. The 72-year-old, who had his thumbs up from his bed on his Instagram photo wrote: “I’m done ! After a snip to my calf muscle, I’m feeling good!”
May continued: “The theory is that it will release the excess tension in my Achilles’ tendon and get me out of a painful heel situation I’ve been in for many months.
“I had the problem all through our last tour of the USA – and although adrenaline got me through, my running around was severely curtailed, and there were a couple of nights when I really couldn’t move at all around the stage (nobody noticed, it seems !).
“So now I’ll be taking it easy just a bit for a while, but full recovery should be just in time for getting back out on tour in January - hopefully with a good pair of heels !
“THANKS for your good wishes, folks. No cause for alarm. Bri.”
