Brian May ‘paralysed’ by depression over New Year: What about Queen Adam Lambert Tour? | Music | Entertainment


With typical frankness, May opened up about his struggles on his Instagram. A series of posts revealed his inner battles at this time of the year. The star has openly discussed his depression over the years and admitted it has been a part of his life, even at the height of Queen’s popularity with Freddie Mercury in the 1970s and 1980s. He has also shared some of the ways he copes with the issue and looks after his mental health.

Yesterday May wrote:  “Most of this Christmas period I haven’t wanted to show my face because my face was grim. There’s something about this time of the year that paralyses me. Depression, hopelessness, fear … I get engulfed.

“Is it logical? No. Should I be grateful for my life and therefore NOT depressed? Yes. But none of that makes any difference when you look up and the colours have gone out of the world.”

Fans rallied around with messages of support and sharing their own personal demons.
