Dave Matthews Saxophonist Dies

Dang.

I know most of you don't care about this (I'm the former goddamned hippy of the crew here), but I've loved DMB - the music, not the idiotic politics - since their early days when they were playing small clubs and opening for bands like Blues Traveler and Phish.

LeRoi Moore sorely missed - he was an integral part of the band's unique sound palette, and DMB is one of the few bands left in the mainstream that still can hold some claim of originality and talent. Got a little too big and trendy-college-kid-crowd for my taste, but they're still solid.

Rock on, LeRoi. God rest. In honor, enjoy a nice jammed out #41 (with Victor Wooten (!)):
