Dave Matthews Band Member Dead

Wow... I'm so bummed, I knew he got hurt a while ago but I had no idea it was this serious




TMZ has learned LeRoi Moore, the sax player in the Dave Matthews Band, has died. He was 46.

Moore was seriously injured in an ATV accident June 30 outside Charlottesville. He had a punctured lung and broken ribs. Moore went back into the hospital last month due to complications.

Moore died in Los Angeles this afternoon, after taking a turn for the worse.

We're also told the band will perform tonight as scheduled at the Staples Center in L.A.

UPDATE: A rep for the Band just gave TMZ the following statement:

"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. Moore had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program."

Holy cow, that's crazy. I had no idea.

I'm amazed they're still playing tonight. Should be pretty emotional.

Re: Dave Matthews Band Member Dead

Just terrible news, I had the chance to see them all together back in Saratoga in June, that was my first show and I just recently started getting into the band seriously, awful news.... I have to imagine tonight is going to be a crazy show, I hope they release it as a Live Trax.

Yeah I have two friends who are obsessed with Dave, and they ask me all the time, and I usually make fun of them for being so crazy about them (much like they do about me with the Skins')..... so I started getting into them before the concert (all I really wanted to hear was Bayou lol), and man ever since the concert I just listen to nothing but these guys.. I feel like every time I find a new song that I become obsessed with..I'll definitely be going back next year if they tour...I'm kind of hoping they do a winter tour (although after the passing I doubt they'll tour)..but I really cannot wait to see them again, they are just awesome...

I haven't seen them live but I like all of their major hits, I am definitely a fan of theirs. This just sucks to hear this, my thoughts go out to their friends and family. What a shame.

R.I.P. Leroi Moore.

Bro I was the same way. I got hooked back in 05 when I went to see them for the first time. They are just amazing musicians. When Roi passed it just freakin ripped my heart out.
