Queen’s guitarist Brian May talks about the pandemic

Queen‘s legendary guitarist Brian May talked with ITV News about the Coronavirus Pandemic that is affecting the entire world. The musician revealed how he is facing the moment and taking care of himself.


Brian May said about the Coronavirus pandemic:

“It’s a very hard time for everyone; this is a tragedy. But, there are things to be grateful for.

“You know, there’s a lot of people who are in terrible times, and we’re gonna lose a lot of people – it might be me, seeing that I’m an elderly, vulnerable person. But, you know, it’s not all bad. There are good things to look forward to, and this is only for now.”

About the self-isolation, he said:

“Yeah, I’ve been through some dark times, you know, and I am a depressive, really, so I found it very difficult at first, especially the loss of freedom.

“But I’m kind of getting through it, and I find that there are joys to be found in isolation. There’s a lot of stuff. People are getting very creative, and when we come out of this, I think there will be some great lessons we have learned.

“I hope we remember the lessons that we’ve learned, that we can work from home, the cars can stop, the planes can stop, the air can get clear, I mean, suddenly we can all breathe again – that’s gonna save countless lives.

“There’s no animals being knocked down on the roads anymore, our wildlife rescue is experiencing a tremendous difference… All these things which we think are part of our society and can’t be got rid of, all the evils that humanity has brought to the world, they’re not inevitable. Maybe we can change. Maybe we need a new direction.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
