QUEEN Guitarist BRIAN MAY Recovering From Leg Surgery

QUEEN guitarist Brian May is recovering after undergoing surgery on his leg on Monday, December 2. He checked in via his Instagram, telling his fans: "I'm done ! After a snip to my calf muscle, I'm feeling good ! 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."

He continued: "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."

He added earlier today: "Thanks for your kind messages folks. I'm doing fine this morning — a little sore but home and ready for a relatively relaxing day. As you can see, everything still works ! Still got my Sympathy Bandage and my anti-clot sock on — but they come off tonight. There's a small band-aid underneath covering a very small incision. I actually CAN walk, but stairs are a bit of a challenge !! Onwards ! Have a good day folks !"

QUEEN is continuing to ride high on the momentum of its box-office-busting, Oscar-winning "Bohemian Rhapsody" biopic, which has introduced its music to new audiences with record-breaking results. Apart from becoming the highest-grossing music biopic of all time, in the U.K. it is also No. 1 biggest-selling film of 2019 on home release.

QUEEN's original soundtrack to the film has remained high in the U.K. album chart ever since its November 2018 debut; in the U.S., it became the band's highest-charting album in 38 years, and QUEEN sold more albums in North America than any artist in the first half of 2019. The timeless and groundbreaking "Bohemian Rhapsody' video has reached a historic one billion views on YouTube making it the most viewed music clip of the 20th Century. In addition, YouTube views of "Don't Stop Me Now" have passed the 500-million mark.

I’m done ! After a snip to my calf muscle, I’m feeling good ! 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 !
