DMB saxophonist, LeRoi Moore, dead at 47

Filed under: Music — Tom @ 9:26 pm

Wow – this surprised me. “LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of the Dave Matthews Band, died Tuesday from complications stemming from injuries he sustained in an ATV accident, the band’s publicist said.” I can’t say I’ve been much of a fan of the band for quite a while, but I’ll always enjoy their earlier material, and I really loved what Moore added to the band – especially when he brought out the huge baritone sax. This is very sad, his absence in the band will be a huge loss.

Update: the band put on a touching tribute to LeRoi the same night.
