Brian May Faced With Back Problems

Brian May, guitarist for Queen, says he's been beset by back problems. On his Twitter account, May said he underwent an MRI that revealed "two torn discs, pressing on a nerve."

The Daily Express writes that May sought medical treatment after suffering "agonizing pain in his buttock muscles," following his performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September.

While May recovers, Queen's upcoming compilation might have to wait. He spoke on the release earlier this month, noting fans might get something they've never heard from the band before:

"We thought we got to the end of it with Made in Heaven. But there are a few other things which have turned up. So the album may turn out to be a mixture of some unusual things from the past and some very unusual things which no one has heard at all."
