LeRoi Moore of Dave Matthews Band Dies
Never was a DMB fan, but it's never good to hear things like this.
LeRoi Moore (September 7, 1961 - August 19, 2008) was the saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band.
Moore was injured on June 30, 2008 in an ATV accident on his farm outside Charlottesville, Virginia, breaking several ribs and puncturing a lung. Moore was hospitalized at UVa for several days. Jeff Coffin, the saxophonist from Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, stood in for Moore on subsequent tour dates. Though released several days later, Moore was rehospitalized in mid-July for complications from the accident.
On August 19, 2008, the official Dave Matthews Band website reported that Moore died of complications from his injuries in the ATV accident.
