Seeing this makes me very emotional... I'm so thankful that he is recovering.

When I read those first words, "I'm sad to say..." and saw Lindsey's pic, my heart stopped. I was certainly not expecting this.

This is a tough period for Lindsey and his family. I hope they are ok, emotionally and physically.

I don't even wanna talk about that woman. She's on tour being happy. She finally got what she wanted. Please, leave it at that.

I agree. If anyone finds out where we can send well wishes to Lindsey, please post it here. I'm sure someone will if that information become available.

I knew that a day like this would come eventually and will never be prepared for it. Incredibly thankful that heís still with us. Canít imagine what his family is going through right now.

This hit me really hard. Itís going to be with me for a while. Speaks volumes for how his music has affected my life. Iím certain that Iím not alone...

Maybe the members of the band might actually think to reach out to him. After something like this, it just goes to show that you never know when it might be too late.

It hit me really hard too, and all I care about is his and his family's recovery.

His tour can wait. His former band members: I don't care.

Besides hoping for a full recovery as soon as possible, I hope the trauma to his vocal chords is just temporary. I also can't help but wonder what might have happened if he had toured with FM. All that stress... It might have just saved his life to have been doing the things he's done on his own terms (somewhat) this year. Brightest blessings to all.

OMG
Praying for a speedy and full recovery
So scary. This was always Lindsey's deep fear after losing his father and brother at young ages to sudden heart problems.
God Bless you Lindsey
We love you very much!

Guy's always been an unstoppable dynamo onstage, so maybe his recovery will be all the speedier.

Such a shock to read this. I sure hope he recovers fully. He looked/sounded so great on Nov 30 when I saw his show in PA. Thank goodness he sought medical care and seems to be on the mend.

I had tickets to see Mike Nesmith and Micky Dolenz in June of 2018, and the show was cancelled last minute because Mike had to have emergency heart surgery, also. I bring it up because Mike is back on the road and looking/sounding great, and says he's feeling so much better than the weeks before the problem was found, so we can only hope Lindsey's recovery goes just as well, also.
