Last week, Bad Brains revealed guitarist Gary Miller, aka Dr. Know, was in the hospital for an unspecified illness. Now, in a statement to their Facebook, the band has offered an update on his health, reporting Miller is no longer in critical condition but remains in the hospital:

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!

Friends within the music community first began sending their positive thoughts and well wishes to Miller at the beginning of the month. Jimi Hazel of 24/7 Spyz wrote the guitarist was “fighting for his life.” Bad Brains later shared their own statement, asking for thoughts, prayers and respect for Miller and his family’s privacy.
