Jeremiah Green, Modest Mouse Co-founder and drummer dies at 45 of cancer

Jeremiah Green, the co-founder and drummer of Modest Mouse as well as one of the best drummers of this era, passed away on Saturday night after a battle with cancer at the age of 45, the band had announced in a statement.

Paying tributes to Green, the group wrote shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve at their Facebook page, “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.

We love you”. In the matter of the fact, the Modest Mouse had unveiled Jeremiah Green's stage IV cancer just a few days ago saying, “Jeremiah was diagnosed with cancer a short while ago, and he’s currently in treatment.

It seems to be going smoothly and making a positive difference. Jeremiah, as am I, are believers in the power of positive energy, so if you would be so kind as to send ‘good vibes’ (to quote Jeremiah) in the direction of Jeremiah and his family, that’d be great”.

In tandem, if truth is be spoken, Green is often contemplated as one of the most gifted drummers of this era, while he is ranked as the 37th in the list of top 50 best rock band drummer by the music publication, Stylus Magazine.

Green founded the Modest Mouse back in the 1992 in Washington with Brock, the band’s singer alongside lead guitarist as well as the bassist Eric Judy. Nonetheless, Green briefly left the band back in the 2003, but re-joined shortly and had been involved in multiple recordings.
