Brian May Details 'Strange' Side-Effect After Contracting COVID-19

The 74-year-old Queen legend announced on his Instagram account that he tested positive for the novel coronavirus back in December 2021 after a birthday lunch with friends.

AceShowbiz - Brian May has been suffering from daily "brown-outs" since contracting COVID-19. The Queen guitarist fell ill with the virus in December 2021 after a birthday lunch with friends, and he has been dealing with a "strange" condition which causes him to suddenly fall asleep.

Appearing on the "How Do You Cope? ... with Elis and John" podcast, the rocker said, "I have a strange persisting condition, I think from the COVID, which are kind of brown-outs… He added, "Generally I'm OK, I'm not tired all the time, but I'll get to a certain point in the day where something inside my head goes, 'You have to sleep now. You don't care about any of this, go to sleep - who cares?' It's an almost irresistible call and I just go out like a light. It's really weird."

The 74-year-old musician admitted he was concerned about the way the condition could impact his life on tour. He added, "It's an almost irresistible call and I just go out like a light. It's really weird. I just hope it doesn't happen in the middle of a gig, because it's going to be very embarrassing - 'Just hang on for half an hour while I have a nap, guys - then we'll do We Are The Champions.' But I feel good, I don't know if it's changed me."

The "Don't Stop Me Now" musician shared the news of his positive COVID-19 test just before Christmas last year as he posted a photo of his test result on Instagram. He wrote at the time, "Yep. The shocking day finally came for me. The dreaded double red line. And yes - definitely NO sympathy please - it has been a truly horrible few days, but I'm OK. And I will tell the tale. PLEASE take extra care out there, good folks. This thing is incredibly transmissible. You really do NOT want it messing up YOUR Christmas."
