Jeremiah Green had immense love for his band Modest Mouse. Soon after knowing about the demise of the drummer, the band’s founding members lead singer and guitarist Isaac Brock, and bassist Eric Judy also paid their heartfelt tribute to the late musician.

Modest Mouse also shared an Instagram post with a picture of Green and wrote a long caption that read, “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.”

On the other hand, Isaac Broke, who met Green just four days ago, wrote, “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,” reported People.
