Leroi Moore Of Dave Matthews Band has died?????

From the rumor mill:

"Sad news. We just learned that the Dave Matthews Band saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who was in an all terrain vehicle accident last month, has died at Cedars Sinai hospital. LeRoi, who has been with the band since it started, was seriously injured in an accident at his ranch in Virginia. He was slowly recovering but suffered lung complications and hasn't been able to perform. We were told that against doctors advice, he flew to LA to be with the band backstage when they open tonight at the Staples center. The flight may have affected him adversely and he died today."

This better be a joke. My 2nd favorite band next to U2

Dave Matthews Band Member Dead

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."



IT'S on CNN now.. so so sad!

I guess it has been confirmed on CNN so it is "officialy" not a rumor anymore

I'm not a DMB fan, but this is very sad. My condolences to his family and friends. And to his fans too. 46 is way too young to die.

Yeah. I really don't know any DMB fans here but to me these guys are a very special band to me. Got me through a lot of rough times.

LeRoi was an awesome sax player. He really added a unique element to DMB's music. I loved his playing on "Grey Street".

I'm glad I saw them all perform together at least once. This sucks. I'm gonna get all sad whenever I hear him playing, like his killer solo at the end of "American Baby". I think they need to move in a new musical direction, don't replace him.

NO! I never got to see them live this is terrible. Not because I didn't see them, but because he was such a great player, and just...oh God, I'm just really sad now.

Very sad news. He was a great musician and a great soul.

My prayers are with his family, the band and everyone who knew him.
