According to Fox News, a US-based news outlet, Green, Isaac Brock and Eric Judy, the band’s co-founders, formed the Grammy-nominated band in Washington in 1992. The band is currently scheduled to play the Lollapalooza Argentina 2023 festival in March.

Brock expressed optimism for Green’s recovery in a direct post on the band’s Instagram four days ago. He wrote of Green’s treatment, “It seems to be going smoothly and making a positive difference. Jeremiah, like me, believes in the power of positive energy, so if you would be so kind as to send some ‘good vibes’ (at Jeremiah) in the direction of Jeremiah and his family, that would be great.” His mother echoed the sentiments, writing on Facebook, “It is [sic] so strong and so brave and hanging in there!’
