Though we still don’t know why he was hospitalized, Bad Brains’ legendary guitarist, Gary Miller—aka Dr. Know—is no longer on life support or in critical condition. Earlier today, the following message was posted on Bad Brains’ official Facebook page:
The Family of Gary (Dr. Know) Miller and the entire Bad Brains family would like to thank everyone for their well wishes. We are happy to say that Dr. Know’s condition is no longer considered critical.
He still remains under the close care and watch of doctors at this time so please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
We continue to ask that you honor our privacy during this time.
Positive vibes and PMA!
A week ago, musicians close to Miller posted on various social media outlets that he had been hospitalized and was on life support. Though no one from Bad Brains’ management issued any statements about why Miller was hospitalized, someone from the band posted on Facebook that he was indeed hospitalized and that “the family respectfully ask that their privacy be honored during this time.
Arts Desk will honor the band and Miller’s family’s request and update only as information about Dr. Know’s condition is made public by the band. In the meantime, keep sending him that PMA.
