Let's hope it's not malignant. He doesn't say anything about that but he does mention wanting to help out a cancer charity in the same paragraph, which is odd. :(

I cried all through Larry King Live last night hearing about Tammy Faye's lung cancer (she never smoked btw, they think it spread from colon cancer 8 years ago).

"Let's hope it's not malignant"

Indeed. And I hope he gets well soon!!

I don't know the other person you mentioned, but I know from experience that cancer is terrible. You wouldn't wish it upon your worst enemy. Umm I think that's a dutch expression but you know what I mean.

Did the cyst have a name?

Par example Ben Elton.

"Brian May has cyst removed" They should better be removed, rather than implanted. Brian is on the right path.

MAY God bless Him. Get well, Idol!!! :)

Today it sounds like a reporter was trying to ask him about it.. he was spotted leaving the hospital I guess, so this 'parasite' woke him up early in the morning. Lovely. Can you blame Brian for being a little bitter?

I sincerely hope that this form of 'journalism' stops soon, especially in the U.K. where it seems to be worse.

I know what you mean, My recently departed aunt suffered from cancer for as long as I can remember, And I witnessed a lot of what the disease can do to you. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy either, Nor his/her best friend.

He's BACK! Check this great entry from Saturday...

**Sat 20 Mar 04**
PARASITE STRIKES AT MY HOME

I would suppose anybody who has more than half a brain cell knows that we work late and need our sleep in the mornings. But some people don't get it, or don't care.

I was woken up horribly early this morning by some lowlife reporter from the scummy News of the World leaning on the buzzer at our house. "We have pictures of you emerging from ....." He got a quiet "goodbye" from me before I put the entryphone down. But when he came back 20 minutes later just when I was getting back to sleep, and started the same thing all over again, he got a much less pleasant reply from me. And next time he'll get a bucket of cold water over his head too. Maybe he's new to his tawdry game. He should know that no-one ever got a quote from us by invading our privacy. And if he was smart enough to read BrianMay.com he would have known the story anyway! Right ?! I hate these dumb-asses. Just to know his finger was on my door-bell makes me want to disinfect it.

LMAO! Fantastic stuff. You gotta love it!

Peace,
Adam.

A copy of the Mirror's wonderful story as well as more comments from Brian.

Incidently those previous comments are what I was refering to before, but I observed the 'not to be republished without prior permission request' :-P

I can understand how he was pissed at the reporter, but I get rather tired of hearing his whinges about the press. Granted, much of the press in Britain is scummy privacy invasion, but he doesn't seem to get that these people are a)just trying to do their jobs and b)he wouldn't be famous were it not for them. He chose to follow the path of music; if he'd gone with astronomy he wouldn't need to worry about the press (although we'd all be worse off for it!).
I like to give people the benefit of the doubt; I like to think that the journo was told to go there by the editor, rang them to say he couldn't get a quote from B, and was told that he was in the shit if he didn't try again.
It's really lame having to go find people to give you quotes knowing that they hate your guts before they even see your face.

That's why Brian should have lasers installed in his front yard..to keep Roger away.

Well, a) Brian notes "Maybe he's new to his tawdry game. He should know that no-one ever got a quote from us by invading our privacy." So he should do some research on his subject's possible reaction... And b) I always thought it was the fans that made bands famous. :P

Peace,
Adam.

LOL, Adam.

I see Dragonzflame point, but IMHO he went a little too far in his assumptions.

Stupid tabloids...they have a vivid imagination, they always have their info wrong! How do they do that??

But it's good to see Brian angry with them again, it means he's OK ;))

Or perhaps SHE went a little too far in HER assumptions. ;-p

Certainly they could have gone about it better, but I still think he was being a tad rough on the reporter.
And I disagree that it's the fans who make a band famous - obviously they play their important roles but it's still the media who give them the exposure, positive or negative. A lot of people first hear about bands through the media.
