Brian May of iconic British rock band Queen had to be rushed to the hospital after injuring his butt while gardening.

“I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening,” May said on Instagram Thursday, May 7, posting a picture of him in a face mask and a video of him being wheeled in the hospital.

“So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself,” he said.

“Turns out I did a thorough job — this is a couple of days ago — and I won’t be able to walk for a while … or sleep, without a lot of assistance, because the pain is relentless.”
