Dr Know

Yesterday it was reported that legendary Bad Brains guitarist Dr. Know was hospitalized and is on life support. There still aren't many details, but Cro-Mags frontman (and Dr. Know's Regulators bandmate) John Jospeh posted an update that mentions his condition is improving:

I have not responded to people asking of Bad Brains guitarist Dr. Know's (Gary's) condition because it's not my place. The family needs to make those calls of who should be informed. That being said after seeing Doc in the hospital today I will say this.... he's improving and he feels all the love, prayers and PMA you've been sending worldwide and so does his family who are all very grateful. Keep them prayers coming for one of the nicest people, greatest and humblest musicians to ever walk the earth and also be a big brother to so many.

Fingers crossed that he keeps improving, and quickly!
