This was after he injured his buttocks while gardening. I still don't think we have the whole story concerning that incident.

Dozens of people spontaneously combust every year. It's just not widely reported.

Exploding is a perfectly normal medical phenomenon.  In many fields of medicine nowadays, a dose of dynamite can do a world of good.  Athlete's Foot, an irritating condition, can be cured by applying a small charge of TNT between each toe.

He's amazing.  He did his hair like that one day decades ago and decided that would be good for the rest of his life.

How much food did he eat?

Why do you think they give nitro glycerin for heart attacks?

I don't care for Brian May.

No one would even know/care who he is, if it wasn't for the greatest frontman ever.

He just makes me ill how he tries to take credit for the genius of Freddy Mercury.

/maybe it was his ego that almost blew him up

In a sea of stupid shiat I see on the internet every day, this is one of the dumbest ones I'm going to read all week.

He never tried to take anything away from Freddie and gets far less credit than he deserves for Queen's success. He wrote some of the band's best known and love songs like We Will Rock You and Fat Bottomed Girls. He contributed 1/3 of the unique vocal sound the band is know for and has a unique and immediately guitar tone. Queen isn't Queen without all four of them. 

Brian May stands shoulder to shoulder with other all time great rock guitarists and has earned the all of the respect he gets from his peers and fans worldwide. 

You're ignorant and you seem quite happy to let everyone know about it. Sad.

Axe players always think the guitarists are the most important part of the band.
Without Freddy's multi-octave range...

Freddy worked on "Bohemian Rhapsody" for years--the song that introduced the band to the world.

Me neither.

I never said Brian May was the most important part of the band. In fact, I said as much when I said that Queen wouldn't be Queen without those specific four people. Freddie, as massively talented as he was, could have been a footnote if it weren't for that band at that time.

Well, that was a thing that I read today.

I'm not listing Queen among my favorite bands, but I'm ready to say that Brian May, at this stage of the game, has nothing left to prove. He's shown himself to be a well-above-average guitarist. He would have done very well even if Freddie hadn't come along (and vice versa). It's unlikely that either would have reached Queen-level heights without the other, but still.

And on a personal note, regardless of anything detractors might say, I'm ready to grant May a lifetime pass just for writing "Tie Your Mother Down." I was farking living that song when it came out, and I'll gladly buy him a beer if the unlikely opportunity ever comes to pass, just for that reason. "Take your little brother swimming with a brick" is one of the greatest rock and roll lyrics ever written, no discussion, period.

I always thought all/most of them were.  Never cared to look it up.  Not sure if Taylor being in love with his car counts.

May's been married to the same woman for 20 years and has 3 kids.  If he's gay, he's really committed to the beard.

Eventually the end will come for all involved in Bicycle Race, the song that best fits the 3D chart of all time worst song and highest popularity and airplay longevity.  THAT END IS LONG OVERDUE YOU BASTA...  ok you get to live longer for other positive contributions.

It's actually one of the potential complications of heart surgery. For whatever reason even though blood flow is artificially kept during surgery, areas of the body can lose blood flow and experience areas of necrosis. It was listed in the packet of stuff when my father got his surgery. I think I had an  uncle die from that. Surgery success rate of 99% though. Long term survival is way lower but that's because it's often older people and/or people with other conditions who need the surgery.

I just thought it was a reference to that old urban legend that applied to (almost any popular front man of the period) that people loved/hated.  (Elton John, Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, Freddie (Mercury, not  of "and the Dreamers"), David Bowie, really anybody (singer, not an instrument-playing musician) that looked like they were getting some (more than their share).  This rumor usually appeared after a cancelled concert.
Someone did the math once, and according to the rumors, the quantity pumped would involve hundreds of guys, and the time required to ingest that amount would be several hours.
