LeRoi Moore, Dave Matthews Band saxophonist dies

By malcolm Published: August 20, 2008

Wow.

The AP reports:

LeRoi Moore one of the founding members of the Dave Matthews Band has died from complications from injuries suffered from an all-terrain accident he had in June.
He was 46.

The DMB who have had Jeff Coffin of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones filling Moore's spot during their 2008 tour have as of yet not cancelled or rescheduled any dates, but honestly if you're going to see them in the next couple days it's likely going to be just a little less groovy then usual.

Back in the early 90's when Matthews was a bartender in Charlottesville, Va., it was Moore to whom he gave his demo tape and it was Moore who enlisted his buddies and fellow classically trained jazz lover Carter Beauford to play drums.

R.I.P.
