Brian May: I'm lucky to have avoided injury to hands
Queen's electric guitar player has said he considers himself very lucky to have avoided serious injury to his hands.
Brian May revealed that he had minor problems with his hands during the band's 2005 tour with former Free and Bad Company star Paul Rodgers.
Speaking to the BBC, he admitted that while that was quite scary, it fortunately did not get any worse.
"Life hits you where you don't want to be hit and our hands are very vulnerable," May commented.
The electric guitar player, who wrote classics such as We Will Rock You and Tie Your Mother Down, was speaking after Black Sabbath star Tony Iommi had stem-cell treatment to cure problems with his hand joints.
According to Iommi, the cartilage between the joints had worn out and was causing him pain.
However, the music veteran said his hands are "coming on alright" since the treatment and are "feeling great".Posted on 4 Nov 2009 13:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
