QUEEN guitarist Brian May is recovering after undergoing knee replacement surgery on Tuesday, August 6th. May checked into hospital for an operation to fix a chronic problem which has plagued him for some time, and he sent a message to his Twitter followers just hours after the surgery to inform them it had been a success.

In a message, Brian stated: "I'm through!!! With a shiny new knee. This no walk in the park (!) but for 1st time in months I feel optimistic and free of that OLD pain."

May, 66, also thanked his loyal fans for cheering him up after the operation, adding: "Thanks so much for the great messages - it means a lot."
