Queenin Brian May koronaviruksesta: ”Kun pääsemme tästä ulos, toivottavasti myös opimme jotain”

Englantilaisen rockyhtye Queenin 72-vuotias kitaristi Brian May on antanut hiljattain haastattelun ITV Newsille, jossa on kertonut omia mietteitään koronaviruksesta sekä tämän aiheuttamasta karenteenista rokkarin mielenterveydelle. Brian on haastattelussa kertonut kokeneensa vapauden menettämisen aluksi todella masentavaksi sekä vaikeaksi, mutta voivansa nyt jo ajatuksiensa kanssa paremmin. Mies kertoi omia kuulumisiaan kotoaan seuraavasti:

”It’s a very hard time for everyone. This is a tragedy. But there are things to be grateful for. There’s a lot of people who are in terrible times, and we’re gonna lose a lot of people. It might be me, since I’m an elderly and vulnerable person. But, you know, it’s not all bad — there are good things to look forward to, and this is only for now.”

”I’ve been through some dark times, and I am a depressive, really. So I found it very difficult at first, especially the loss of freedom. But I’m kind of getting through it. And I find that there are joys to be found in isolation. There’s a lot of stuff. People are getting very creative. And when we come out of this, I think there will be some great lessons we have learned. I hope we remember the lessons that we’ve learned — that we can work from home, the cars can stop, the planes can stop, the air can get clear. I mean, suddenly we can all breathe again. That’s gonna save countless lives. There’s no animals being knocked down on the roads anymore, and our wildlife rescue is experiencing a tremendous difference. All these things which we think are part of our society and can’t be got rid of, all the evils that humanity has brought to the world, they’re not inevitable. Maybe we can change. Maybe we need a new direction.”
