Last year, Queen and Adam Lambert performed on tour across Asia and Oceania before the first lockdown. Finding himself stuck at home, Brian May shared his struggles with fans through his Instagram account as he ended up in hospital after tearing his Gluteus Maximus, which left the guitarist in terrible pain. If that wasn’t bad enough, the 73-year-old also suffered a heart attack, but has miraculously kept his spirits up in the months since; continuing to persevere and produce new material.
