LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of the Dave Matthews Band, died on Tuesday 8/19/2008 at the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 46 years old.
Moore suffered serious injuries during an all-terrain vehicle accident at his farm in Charlottesville, VA on June 30, 2008. His injuries included a punctured lung and broken ribs. Since being released, Moore returned to his Los Angeles home to start intensive rehabilitation. Complications then forced Moore to return to the hospital on July 17.
DMB went on with their scheduled performance last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with Jeff Coffin (Flecktones) filling in for Moore. Dave dedicated the show to Moore.
DMB posted this on their website: "We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program."
