QUEEN lead guitarist Brian May can't walk or sleep after ripping his gluteous maximus muscle during "over-enthusiastic gardening".
The 72-year-old rock legend said he was being "over-stretched" and "harassed by too many demands" before he suffered the injury.
But it took a spot of "over-enthusiastic gardening" for his gluteous maximus to be "ripped to shreds".
The gluteous maximus is the largest and main muscle in control of the hip and makes up the biggest part of the bum.
Brian told his followers: "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.
"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."
May co-founded Queen with lead singer Freddie Mercury and drummer Roger Taylor after previously performing with Roger in the band Smile.
Queen has been estimated to have sold between 170 million to 200 million records, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists of all time.
May recently ruled out a sequel to the award-winning 2018 Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
"Don't think we didn't think about it," he told Rolling Stone.
"We've talked. Basically we think not, at the moment. Things could change, I suppose, but I think it would be difficult."
