Queen’s Brian May Is Cancer Free: ‘I Am, Thank God, In the Clear’
By Brian Ives
Queen guitarist Brian May shared the news yesterday on his official website, letting fans know he is clear of cancer; late last year, he underwent “urgent tests” to determine if he had cancer.
May said in a message to fans, that he received a phone call from his doctor, who told him, “I have good news, the results of your biopsy is here, and we did not find any cancer cells.”
The guitarist went on to tell fans, “Thanks to all of you who have cared so much… I never realized that I was so much thought of.”
Elsewhere in the note, he mentioned plans to release a Queen song that was recorded over thirty years ago: “What’s great is that nobody has got hold of this and leaked it.” He added “It’s nice to be putting the Queen hat on again for a while.”
