Brian May Looked To Freddie Mercury For Inspiration During Health Scare

Brian May says that during his recent cancer scare he's looked to his departed band mate Freddie Mercury for inspiration. Speaking with the Sun, he said the illness made him reevaluate his life:

"In a healthy way, it's good to be aware of your death - so that you can get your life in perspective," May began.

"Freddie Mercury was very focused and had no time to waste, ever! He really did spend the short life he had doing what he wanted to do. It is important to look at every day as a gift."

He added: "It's still a bit mystifying though, as I'm not totally fine. I still have a lot of problems and pains, but we seem to have eliminated all the sinister possible causes. I'm just left slightly baffled and am trying to build up my strength again."
