Lindsey Buckingham is dealing with some serious health issues. Buckingham’s wife took to social media to reveal that the former Fleetwood Mac guitarist underwent open-heart surgery last week, and if that wasn’t bad enough, the surgery damaged his vocal cords.
“Each day he is stronger than the last,” Kristen Buckingham shares on social media. “While he and his heart are doing well, the surgery resulted in vocal cord damage. While it is unclear if the damage is permanent, we are hopeful it is not.”
Kristen adds, “This past year has been a very stressful and difficult year for our family to say the least. But despite all of this, our gratitude for life trumps all obstacles we have faced at this moment. We feel so fortunate that he’s alive. As does he. He looks forward to recovery and putting this behind him.”
Kristen did also note that any Lindsey shows currently scheduled are on hold for the time being as he “gathers the strength to heal completely.”
