Founding member and saxophone player for The Dave Matthews Band, LeRoi Moore passed away yesterday. From the official Dave Matthews Bans website:
We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program.I don't get too much into music, which is to say that I don't usually follow many bands, but I am a huge fan of DMB. This news certainly comes as a shock. Our thoughts are with his family and close friends.
