Queen guitarist Brian May shared via social media that he underwent surgery on his leg on December 2nd, reporting that he is “feeling good.” On his Instagram page, May posted a picture with the following message, “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! THANKS for your good wishes, folks. No cause for alarm.” May followed up with a video that he captioned, “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! Watch the video here.
