Brian May's Prostate Cancer Tests Come Back Negative
The guitarist has revealed the good news.
Brian May has revealed that urgent tests he underwent for prostate cancer over the festive period have come back negative.
In a post on his Soapbox blog, the 66-year-old guitar legend says he received a call from his specialist with great news – however, there are “some mysteries to solve.”
Brian wrote last night: “Well, I got a great phone call from my specialist this evening. He said: ‘I have good news. The result of your prostate biopsy is here, and we did not find any cancer cells.’
“So finally, as far as that vital organ is concerned, I am – thank God – in the clear. It’s a great relief. I celebrated in the studio with a cup of tea. Hey… I know how to rock!”
He continued: “There are still some mysteries to solve, but I am going to take a moment to count my blessings, and get back into life in the big wide world.
“Thanks to all of you who have cared so much… I never realised I was so much thought of.”
Both Brian May and Roger Taylor have said that Queen will be exploring some musical ventures this year.
On 14th December, Brian wrote: “Our Queen meeting? Thanks for asking. We pressed 2 important buttons. 2014 is going to be an interesting year for us. News v. soon. Bri.”
And Roger Taylor said of Adam Lambert in an interview with Canoe.ca: "He's got a voice which is pretty unbeatable. I do think we will be working with Adam next year, yeah."
