Brian May says he imagined his own funeral after heart attack

Queen guitarist Brian May revealed that he suffered a heart attack after a domestic accident and had to go to the hospital in the beginning of the month of May. Now the 72 year-old musician said that this made him imagine his own funeral.


Brian May said about imagining his own funeral:

“Hello lovely folks. Can’t quite make it to the music room today – the so-called music room. Battling things a bit today but I’m overwhelmed – I‘m really more than touched by the torrent of love and support that’s come back at me after incredible coverage in the Press. I really didn’t expect all that.

“As you can see I’m okay but you know this is going to sound really strange but my e-mail box and the Save-Me box and everything else are so full of incredible messages. I will never ever be able to thank you all individually, so let me please at least thank you here. It’s just unbelievable.”

He continued:

“This is going to sound very strange but I sort of feel like, like I died and yet I was able to come to the funeral and see all the tributes and stuff. I hadn’t thought that at funerals. I don’t know if you think that you know all these people who come and say these wonderful things about the person that’s gone, but you can’t hear it or she can’t hear it, and so I’m lucky I got to hear it from … … My life is complete – yeah. I’m sorry that sounds weird but, I don’t know, I can’t compare it with anything.”

“I just looked at all the publicity that was generated so I’m thrilled and I’m, I’m pretty good today. Coming on and I’m taking it easy and taking all the right things and do the physio and all the rest of it. So I’m gonna be fully functional pretty soon. But thank you, thank you, thank you. That’s all I can sa, for the fantastic fantastic amount of love you give me.”

“It’s really appreciated. I will never forget. Thank you ! Bri.”
