On a recent Instagram post, Queen’s legendary guitarist Brian May revealed if the coronavirus got him or not and explained why he had been silent for a long time.

As you might remember, Brian May shared his latest post six days ago to announce the re-recording version of ‘We Are The Champions’ and showed their support to the frontline workers during the coronavirus outbreak.

Today, Brian explained that he was in the hospital for a while and relieved the fans by saying that it wasn’t due to the coronavirus. However, the reason why he is in the hospital has saddened the community.

Brian stated that he was looking after the garden happily, but he injured his gluteus maximus muscle, which located in the buttocks. He said that the pain was terrible that he couldn’t even sleep or move.

Afterward, Brian wrote in the caption that he needs a healing process and complete break for a while and said goodbye to the community to rest at home.

Here is what Brian May said:

“Reality check! For me. No – the Virus didn’t get me yet – thank God. Hope you’re all keeping extra-safe out there. A decision to relax controls doesn’t suddenly make the danger go away. But me? Yes, I’ve been quiet. Reason? As well as getting over-stretched and harassed by too many demands…

I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening. So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself.”

He continued:

“Turns out I did a thorough job – this is a couple of days ago – and I won’t be able to walk for a while… Or sleep, without a lot of assistance, because the pain is relentless.

So, folks… I need to go dark for a while, getting some complete rest, at home. Please, please don’t send me sympathy – I just need some healing silence for a while. I’ll be back – but I need the complete break. OK? Thanks. Take care out there.”

A fan named Brittney added this comment:

“Ok, I had a heart attack thinking you had a run-in with the corona.”

Another fan named Hannah wrote:

“Oh no… I hope you feel better soon. Love you so much”
