LeRoi Moore 1961-2008

LeRoi Moore was the saxophonist of the Dave Matthews Band. He died Tuesday, August 19th stemming from complications from a recent motorcycle accident last month. He was only 47.

LeRoi or Roi as Dave would call him was a very shy guy. He always wore sunglasses while performing to help concentrate and I think to kind of hide himself. He was so shy that on one occasion, he did not show up in one of the bands music videos. Yet despite the shyness of his personality, he played a nasty saxophone. The man's playing was just unreal. His jams in songs were anything from relaxing to exciting to just plain beautiful! He was part of the band who's music changed my life. He will always be remembered for the beautiful music that he gave. And he will be missed! Take it easy LeRoi....yes indeed.
