DMB Sax Player, LeRoi Moore, has died at 46

Moore was badly injured in an ATV accident earlier in the summer, in which he punctured a lung as well as breaking several ribs. He was re-admitted last month for complications from those injuries. He was still slowly recovering from the lung injury, and had flown to LA against his doctor's advice, to be with DMB backstage before they opened last night at the Staples Center. It is speculated that the flight may have adversely affected his condition, and led to his death yesterday.

Anyone who's ever heard a Dave Matthews Band song is already familiar with the sax man's distinct jazz and funk overtones. The show went on last night at the center, but it was prefaced by this tribute from the front man:
