Queen lead guitarist Brian May shared an Instagram post including his photo with Roger Taylor, Paul Crook, and Meat Loaf, who passed away a short time ago, to express his feeling about losing him.

Meat Loaf pursued a very successful career as a musician and actor thanks to the projects that he took place in. Unfortunately, the singer died on January 20, 2022, at the age of 74 but the real cause of his death wasn’t revealed.

However, it’s claimed that the main reason behind his early and unexpected death was COVID-19 even though his family didn’t say anything about it on their announcement. Then, many musicians, Jon Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, and Brian May mourned after his death as his colleagues and friends.

In addition, Brian May, who was friends with the late musicians for a long time and collaborated with him for Loaf’s tenth studio album ‘Hang Cool Teddy Bear’ and for different live performances, wanted to remember his good and happy times with his friend.

In his recent IG post, May shared a moment with Roger Taylor, Paul Crook, and Meat Loaf after their show at the Bridgestone Arena saying that sometimes it can be painful to remember them. However, he stated that he chose to smile and feel lucky about spending time with a person like Meat Loaf.

Here’s what May wrote:

What a great moment. Having lost many great friends over the years, I’m familiar with the way the happiest memories can become the saddest. But, these days, some of those treasured moments feel almost as tangible as current life.

Here we see a moment of jolliness after our show at the Bridgestone Arena, Nashville – on the left, my bro’ Rog, then Mr. Loaf and me, then my dear pal Paul Crook, who produced Meat’s later albums, played spectacular guitar for him on stage, and kindly sent me this picture.

Does it make you happier or sadder? Me? In spite of the sadness of losing this awesome human being, I can’t help but smile. Those moments live on and I feel lucky. Sometimes I need to remember how lucky I have been.”
