We Will Miss You, Roi….

I wanted to take some time today to honor a man. But not just any man.
A man who has influenced millions of people for nearly two decades, a
man who was involved in the community, a man we must now Say Goodbye
to. That man is LeRoi Moore. The long time saxophonist for the Dave
Matthews Band passed away on August 19th from complications that arose
following an ATV accident in Charlottesville, Virginia. While his death
was painfully unexpected, I can’t help but think back to one of my
favorite quotes: "Death is not a tragedy to the one who dies. To have
wasted the life before that death, that is the tragedy." LeRoi
certainly did not waste his life. He regaled us with his sweet melodies
and powerful sax solos. He enchanted us with his whistling on Let You
Down and made us want to get up and dance with Tripping Billies. He may
have been the quietest member of the band (from the fans perspective at
least), but his absence will leave a gaping hole that will not soon be filled. Godspeed, Sir.

RIP LeRoi Moore
1961-2008
