Earlier this month, legendary Queen guitarist Brian May suffered a “small” heart attack, as he explained in a Instagram post early Monday morning.

As he detailed, the heart attack took place a couple of days after he had already experienced a gardening mishap that left him in fear of ripping his glutes to “shreds.”

“I had … in the middle of the whole saga of the painful backside … I had a small heart attack,” says May of his ordeal. “It’s not something that did me any harm. It was about 40 minutes of pain in the chest and tightness, and that feeling in the arms and sweating.”

More from Brian May about his heart attack episode, as quoted by the BBC:

“I thought I was a very healthy guy,” he said.

“But I turned out to have three arteries that were congested and in danger of blocking the supply of blood to my heart.”

“I walked out with a heart that’s very strong now, so I think I’m in good shape for some time to come.”

My medical adventures !

Hmm … Sheer Heart Attack eh ? Well, I think I always worried a little bit about that album title. I wondered if it might upset some people who had actually had heart attacks. I’m actually quite relieved now that I’m in that club – and I don’t find it upsetting at all ! Take. care folks. And … why did those discs in my spine get so squished? Well I think 50 years of running around with a guitar strap over my left shoulder holding a heavy guitar might have something to do with it ! But it probably WAS all worth it ! Bri

A very frightening experience, for sure. Best wishes of continued healing and warmth go out to Brian May!
