    Sax player from the Dave Matthews Band died today at 46. No matter your feelings on the band, the guy was a true talent.
  2. Well, damn. That sucks.

    Here's the link - I DB'ed this over on the Anything Goes board ...

    This is the first "celebrity" death that has really stung me, personally.
    I've been listening to DMB for 15 years now, loved every minute of every show, nearly every song and loved everything about them.
    This is a tough one for me and it will be hard to see how the band moves on from it.
    R.I.P. LeRoi. The world lost a good one today.

    If anyone comes here after the show in LA, I'd love to hear how that was.

    Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.


    I just saw DMB in OKC last week and the guy they had filling in, (Flecktone Jeff Coffin) while still talented, couldn't hold Moore's jock.

    I first saw DMB when they were playing small venues/bigger bars. I think Trees in Dallas was my first show. When Jerry died and the Grateful Dead quit touring, I started hitting DMB shows each summer. LeRoi was one of my favorite parts of the band. When he'd crank up the baritone sax, it just rumbled through the audience.

    Tonight's setlist (so far, the show is still going) via the Warehouse. I can't imagine the emotions there,

    Edit: Complete setlist ...

    Friend saw them play in Memphis a couple weeks back.
    And, oddly enough, I had been watching the Gorge live concert DVD just yesterday.

    I might have to bust out the Red Rocks CD tomorrow on the way to work. RIP.

    DMB was the first band I really, really got into. They were key players in the soundtrack to my high school and college years, and I spent dozens of summer evenings enjoying their live shows. And while the band will go on, LeRoi will definitely be missed.

    He always wore sunglasses on stage to get over his stage fright. I always thought it was cool that he never took them off.

    RIP indeed.

    I have mixed feelings about DMB. Intellectually, I know they are all talented dudes. Sonically, I think they kind of suck.

    No doubt Mr. Moore was a hell of a sax player. RIP.

    Just finished watching "Live at Piedmont Park", and ordered the Busch Stadium DVD, his last performance.

    RIP, Mr. Moore; You were a true talent.
