In Memoriam Aaron Carter Snubs, Jeremiah Green
The 2023 Grammys took place last night (February 5th) and as I watched the broadcast the event seemed to have gone off without incident. However, during the “In Memoriam” section, some fans couldn’t help but notice that some notable musicians weren’t credited during the show.
For example, some wondered why Aaron Carter, who died last November, was not included in the honor.
Others noted that late rockers like Modest Mouse’s Jeremiah Green and Low’s Mimi Parker didn’t make it either.
hey #GRAMMYs You forgot some big losses in the past year. Jeremiah Green – Founding member of #humblemouse & Mimi Parker of @lowtheband…..over 30 years of beautiful music! ghees

Also, some noticed that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins wasn’t credited, but since he died just before last year’s show, he was honored at the time.
Hours before the start of the program, the Recording Academy actually published an In Memoriam post on their website. In the introduction, they explain: “The following is a list of artists and industry professionals that the music community lost from January 1, 2022 to December 6, 2022. The 2022 Grammys program on CBS included an In Memoriam segment highlighting some of the people via a video tribute, and all of those people who died before the print date will be included in the official 2023 Grammys program book.
Many of the artists missing from the show are included in this list, but not Green, who died on December 31, 2022, outside of the apparent list selection window. This also explains the absence of Gangsta Boo, whose death was on January 1st, 2023.
