Brian May is admitting there could be more to his back problems than some torn discs. The Queen guitarist says on his "Bri's Soapbox" web page that his recent MRI which revealed the disc damage also indicated "some abnormalities in the bones."
May explains that since Christmas he's undergone "a succession of blood tests, ultrasounds, and various kinds of scans, to see if they could rule out various kinds of cancer," and so far the tests have "eliminated a lot of nasty things."
The rocker adds that the specialist he's seeing hasn't found "any evidence of cancers in the tests," and has given him "permission to be optimistic." But May still doesn't know just what's wrong. He says he went in for another scan Tuesday morning, so he expects to know more soon.
