LeRoi Moore, the saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band, died yesterday in Los Angeles at the young age of 46. LeRoi was seriously injured in an ATV accident on his farm in Virginia on June 30th. He suffered a punctured lung and several broken ribs. He was released a few days later, but returned to the hospital last month due to complications from his injuries.
LeRoi was also a founding member of the Dave Matthews Band and co-wrote several songs. The band paid tribute to him at their show in Los Angeles last night. Dave Matthews told the audience, “We all had some bad news today. Our good friend LeRoi Moore passed on and gave his ghost up today and we will miss him forever.”
Rest in peace, LeRoi Moore….
