I just got this in my email....
For you DM fans I thought I would share this:

LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from an ATV accident in June on his farm near Charlottesville, VA.  Moore had recently returned to his L.A. home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program.  He was 46.  Neil Portnow, President of the Recording academy said, "LeRoi Moore was a versatile and inventive saxophonist [who] helped define the group's eclectic and signature sound. His untimely passing is a loss to music fans everywhere, and our heartfelt sympathies go out to the band, his family and all who were moved by his music."
