Fleetwood Mac's Buckingham suffers vocal cord damage during heart surgery

Lindsey Buckingham's wife Kristen said the Fleetwood Mac music icon is recovering at home after recent emergency open heart surgery.

"Each day he is stronger than the last," Kristen Buckingham said in a statement posted on Twitter Friday. "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."

Lindsey Buckingham, 69, was the lead guitarist and vocalist for Fleetwood Mac off and on since 1975 until last year.

Last April, the rock band announced it had fired Buckingham, and Mike Campbell from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers and Neil Finn from Crowded House would replace him on Fleetwood Mac's concert tour.

Rolling Stone said Buckingham was ousted because singer Stevie Nicks refused to work with him.

"After 43 years and the finish line so clearly in sight, it's hard to escape the conclusion that for the five of us to splinter part would be the wrong thing," Buckingham wrote band co-founder Mick Fleetwood in an unsuccessful bid to win back his job last year. "At the moment, the band's heart and soul has been diminished. But out center, which has seen us through so much, is only laying dormant."

Buckingham has been performing as a solo artist in recent months.

"We are saddened by this news. Our thoughts and love go out to Lindsey and his entire family. We are hopeful for his speedy recovery," his former bandmates tweeted Friday after hearing he suffering a health crisis.

Reports: Danai Gurira leaving 'Walking Dead' next season

Black Panther actress Danai Gurira will leave The Walking Dead in the show's upcoming 10th season, media reports said.

Deadline said Gurira, who has played Michonne since Season 3, has signed on to appear in a handful of episodes in Season 10.

However, The Hollywood Reporter said Michonne might also turn up in the three planned Walking Dead TV movies starring Andrew Lincoln, who played Michonne's partner Rick Grimes on the zombie-apocalypse drama.

"I'll just say Michonne is obviously a huge part of the story of The Walking Dead," showrunner Angela Kang told Insider this week. "We absolutely love Danai. Anything that's contract-wise, that's for people to work out, but we have a lot of exciting stories to tell with her going forward. We're thrilled for what's in store for her. That's as much as I can say right now."

AMC has not publicly commented on the reports.

The second half of Season 9 is to begin Sunday.

"It was a little tough for me at first ... Readjusting to people caring about me, getting that love that I shut out ... Honestly, therapy, just talking to somebody just helped me out a lot. As a man you get a lot of slack for it ... I don't really subscribe to that. Everyone needs to unpack and talk."
--Michael B. Jordan, on how therapy helped to pull him out of the isolation he'd embraced to get into character for Black Panther, to Oprah Winfrey on her SuperSoul Conversations TV special

Which 'Game of Thrones' cast member will star in Netflix's 'Last Sons of America'?

Peter Dinklage will lead the cast of the Netflix movie Last Sons of America.

The film will be an adaptation of the BOOM! Studios graphic novel by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Matthew Dow Smith.

Johnson tweeted his thanks to all involved in the project "for taking a chance on a no-name's 1st book."

"I won't forget it," Johnson said.

Josh Mond wrote the movie's screenplay and plans to direct it.

"In the not too distant future, Americans are no longer able to conceive and children have become a valuable commodity around the globe," a synopsis said. "Brothers Jackie and Julian are operating as adoption agents in Colombia, securing deals with families willing to give their children up for a presumably better life in America. When the brothers suddenly find themselves with their backs against the wall, Jackie makes a grave mistake that sends them spiraling into a dark mystery at the root of their world's status quo; a mystery much darker than they might be able to bear."

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is to premiere on HBO on April 14.
