Earlier this year, Lindsey Buckingham underwent emergency open-heart surgery – and it seems as though the former Fleetwood Mac man has recovered well. Over the weekend, he made his first public appearance since the operation, but he didn’t pick a big arena to do so. Instead, he chose his daughter’s high school graduation ceremony.

With the support of a student choir led by his daughter Leelee, Lindsey strummed out an emotional, acoustic rendition of Landslide. Watch a snippet of the performance via his wife’s Instagram post below:
