Queen's Brian May Suffered a Heart Attack While Recovering from a Crushed Nerve

Brian May, the longtime guitarist for the band Queen, is facing more setbacks to his health.

The 72-year-old rocker recently opened up about being hospitalized after hurting his butt while gardening, which ended up leading to a crushed nerve.

Brian said that the nerve was “quite severely compressed and that’s why I had this feeling that someone was putting a screwdriver in my back.”

While recovering, Brian suffered a heart attack that could have been fatal.

“In the middle of the whole saga of the painful backside I had a small heart attack,” Brian said on Instagram. “I actually turned out to have three arteries which were congested and in danger of blocking the supply of blood to my heart.”

Brian opened up about his health battle, which you can watch in the video below.
