Modest Mouse co-founding member and drummer Jeremiah Green is dead.
The band’s frontman Isaac Brock announced Green’s passing in a Facebook message shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve.
He wrote, “I don’t know a way to ease into this: Today we lost our dear friend Jeremiah. He laid down to rest and simply faded out. I’d like to say a bunch of pretty words right now, but it just isn’t the time. These will come later, and from many people. Please appreciate all the love you give, get, have given, and will get. Above all, Jeremiah was about love.”
Just five days ago, Green’s mother, Carol Namatame, went public with her son’s battle with stage four cancer and asked fans to send “healing vibes.”
Green’s friend and radio DJ Marco Collins also talked about Green’s illness last week saying he was undergoing chemo treatments and that his prognosis was good.
Should the band continue without Green? Why or why not?
