So, Brian has a tenosynovitis as a result from overstraining his fingers on the tour. This is painful and it can take very long to heal. Let's hope he gets better soon, it would be a high price to pay for the tour if he is left with much pain for a long time.


I do not want any google ads here.

Hmmmm....Im a guitar player for 30+ years (yea i know...good for me),,,,,Im certainly no Brian May, but.....I can play for 8-10 hours at a time...including demanding acoustic fingerpicking.....with zero pain. Im 45....I know Brian is older, but.....seems odd that he cant play for a few hours a day (at most).....methinks I smell an excuse for no more touring brewing.

Or perhaps all the playing he did when he was younger is catching up with him at his current age?

Let´s not start a discussion here. We heve diferent bodyes and what works for one may not work for the other. But it´s strange that he´s suffering because his music is not very demanding (Allan Holdsworth has the same age as Brian and no one and i mean NO ONE, young or older, can match this guy.)

What i think happened was Brian worryied so much for the details of the tour, because he´s a perfeccionist, that probably he wouldn´t warm up correctly because the lack of time. The Key for a good guitar player and hand health is to warm up correctly, and if you have 57 years this becomes even more true.

TAke care

P.S: Sometimes, if you didn´t warm up, it takes just one song to ruin your hand completelly.

now, play a wee bit of guitar and am not any good by any means, having not heard anything from the tour yet, is it possible he was playing stuff in a different key cos of Rodgers voice, Your fingers get a 'memory' if ya like. These new keys could be a stretch, he has'nt done in a while.
Just a thought.


Give me a good guitar and you can say that my hairs a disgrace.

He doesn't need to make up stories like this just to cancel the tour. It was a succes. I personally can believe him.

And with all that tour money, surely he could hire someone for that. Give his hands a bit of a rest.

Yeah that ought to warm Bri up plenty. Also ought to limber up his whatever the hell you call it that I can't pronounce...Probably made it up!


Oh...it took a minute and then I realized what you meant in answering that he can't use his hand.

I've gone blind!!!! Oh..sorry, that's what would happen if Brian used his hand!!!! Lol!
