2018 was a rough year for Lindsey Buckingham. He lost his spot in Fleetwood Mac to Mike Campbell. 2019 is not off to a good start either. Late last week, Buckingham underwent open heart surgery. During the operation he suffered vocal cord damage. It is apparently uncertain whether the vocal impairment is temporary or permanent. Buckingham's family medical history includes the deaths of both his father (56) and a brother (46) to heart related issues.
We wish Lindsey his best in battling back from this.
