Ex-Fleetwood Mac Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham Suffers Vocal Cord Damage

Lindsey Buckingham's vocal cords were damaged whilst the former Fleetwood Mac guitarist was undergoing open heart surgery last week. He is now recuperating at home and...

The 69-year-old rocker's wife, Kristen Buckingham, said on social media that it's unclear if the damage after the surgery is permanent.

Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974, the same year as the band's longtime lead singer, Stevie Nicks.

Get well soon, Lindsey!

"This past year has been a very stressful and hard year for our family to say the least", Mrs Buckingham said on social media. But despite all this, our gratitude for life trumps all obstacles we have faced at this moment.

The Kospi in South Korea declined 1.2 percent to 2,177.04 and Australia's S&P ASX 200 was down 0.4 percent at 6,067.60. The US stock selloff exacerbated a global market pullback Thursday on worries about a worldwide economic slowdown.

She said Buckingham's late father and brother also had heart-related problems.

"We feel so fortunate that he's alive".

"We are so thankful for the kind and generous love given by the eople surrounding Lindsey, me and our kids during this emotional time". It's with great relief and thankful hearts that we report the surgery was successful in its goal. We will never forget you'.

Buckingham's official departure from Fleetwood Mac came in April when the band announced Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House were joining the lineup. In October, he sued the band members for the $12 million he lost in Fleetwood Mac's upcoming tour. She noted that the family shared its story in hopes that it would inspire others to seek preventative care.

"My heart goes out to you and your family. We are hopeful for his speedy recovery".
