As they played stadium, after stadium, after stadium.

Though, like all good things, it sadly came to an end.

As in 1991, Freddie Mercury passed away from bronchial pneumonia, just twenty-four hours after releasing a statement confirming that he had AIDS. And John Deacon retired years later in 1997.

This wasnt the end though.

One that many people could only dream of.

And despite being seventy-two, an age that many would have retired at...

The guitarist has continued to work tirelessly over the years and nothing has seemed to stop him.

Not even a recent injury to his buttocks stopped him...

Which he told his followers on Instagram all about.

In a post on Instagram the music legend said he had been left in "relentless pain".

He began by saying " Reality check ! For me. No - the Virus didn’t get me yet - thank God. Hope you’re all keeping extra-safe out there. A decision to relax controls doesn’t suddenly make the danger go away. But me ?? Yes, I’ve been quiet. Reason ?"

He also added later in this post "So, folks ... I need to go dark for a while, getting some complete rest, at home. Please, please don’t send me sympathy - I just need some healing silence for a while."

"I’ll be back - but I need the complete break. OK ? Thanks. Take care out there. Bri"

Now, you must be wondering what has happened? What could he have done?

Well, we bet you couldn't guess.

Brian explained that he actually managed to pull his gluteus maximus by...gardening.

Yes, really. In the post, he explained: "I managed to rip my gluteus maximus to shreds in a moment of overenthusiastic gardening. So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself."

Even though the guitarist was on the road to recovery...

Disaster wasn't far around the corner.

The terrible news has just come in that Brian has been rushed to hospital after suffering a heart attack.

Taking to Instagram to inform his followers, he wrote: "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!"

He continued...

"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."

It seems that Brian is slowly on the road to recovery following his heart attack...

And this is all that we could ask for! Get well soon, Bri!
