LONDON (AP) — Queen guitarist Brian May says he recently had three stents put in after experiencing “a small heart attack.”
May says Monday in an Instagram video that the stents were put in after his doctor drove him to a hospital after he started experiencing symptoms.
The rocker said he found the experience shocking as he thought he was healthy. He says he feels fine now, the procedure was a success and he's "ready to rock."
