Lindsey Buckingham Heart problems

Just read an FB post that Lindsey Buckingham had emergency open heart surgery last week. He is recovering, but has suffered vocal cord damage! Yikes!

Oh, man, terrible news. My guess is, the vocal-chord damage is from the intubation and won't be permanent, but he might decide to hang up his guitar regardless. That would be a great loss to music. He's one of only a small handful of musicians whose albums I still automatically buy.

same here. Well even if he canít sing he could still write some mean songs for McVie to sing ...

sounds like a family history of heart problems though, so hopefully this surgery takes care of it

Are they still on speaking terms after the whole F.M. fiasco? Plus, though I'm not enormously fond of his reedy voice, I'd rather he sing his own songs. He's unique. There's only one Lindsey Buckingham.

Medicine can do so much more these days than was possible even 20 years ago, so, yeah, I'm with you in crossing my fingers that the surgery will help Lindsey live normally.
My mom had congestive heart failure about 6 years ago. She had mitral valve surgery and, knock on wood, her heart has been fine since.

Donít know if theyíre on good terms but I doubt she was a big part of the ouster.

I like his voice too. Irreplaceable

Glad to hear your mom is well!

Lindsey has said that Chris was the only one who reached out afterwards. He didn't give the impression that they are on bad terms.

Yeah, considering they just released a great album a little while ago, Iíd assume theyíre copacetic!
