Queen's Brian May has been hospitalized -- luckily not for any pandemic-related issue. . .

He actually just hurt his tushie.

May posted a message to fans on his social media accounts explaining the situation:

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. Bri
