Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham suffered vocal cord damage after undergoing emergency open heart surgery last week. He’s now home and on the mend.

“Each day he is stronger than the last,” the 69-year-old’s wife, Kristen, tweeted on Friday. “While he and his heart are doing well, the surgery resulted in vocal cord damage.” She continued, “While it is unclear if the damage is permanent, we are hopeful it is not.”

All scheduled gigs have been postponed as Buckingham heals.

“He looks forward to recovery and putting this behind him,” she said.

His wife then took a moment to spread awareness of heart disease, saying that Buckingham’s father and brother died from heart-related illness.

Buckingham split from Fleetwood Mac last year after a disagreement with Stevie Nicks.
