At 72-years-old, Queen and Adam Lambert guitarist Brian May has wisely chosen to self-isolate. But the rock legend hasn’t lost heart, choosing to cheer up fans on his Instagram. In his latest post, May says he intends to entertain everyone with a string of micro-concerts on his social media channel.
May wrote: “In my living room at home – where else ?!
“I seem to have most all my usual channels to entertain you … so maybe here on IG is the place to perform micro concerts across the ether.
“Is that a good plan ? This is my contribution to the Common Good tonight.
“A raw cheer-up outburst. Living Room Rock ! IG-ROCK ! Is this the future ?”
May continued: “Who am I? Who was I? Who could I be in this new kind of world?
“And we’re all gonna need a friend. The kind of friends you need is something like this…”
The 72-year-old then performed an epic guitar riff before adding: “And your friend will always be there for you.”
He then played a few more notes before coming to a satisfying conclusion.
The day before, May spoke of how his recent tour dates with Queen and Adam Lambert now felt like an “impossibly distant dream”.
The star even admitted he had had doubts about ever playing live again for fans because of the pandemic.
Luckily the most recent leg of the tour ended before March and the band aren’t due to go back on the road until the end of May.
As of now only one concert around then, set for Paris, France, has been postponed so far.
