    No longer a fan, but I was a HUGE fan growing up (save your comments) and it is unfortunate to see this man pass away. RIP Leroi Moore

    LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of the Dave Matthews Band, died Tuesday from complications stemming from injuries he sustained in an ATV accident, the band's publicist said.


    Moore, 47, died "unexpectedly" at a hospital, publicist Ambrosia Healy said in a statement.

    Moore was taken to Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, and had been rehabilitating at his L.A. home after the June 30 accident at his farm outside Charlottesville, Virginia.

    The Dave Matthews Band was formed in Charlottesville in 1991 by Matthews, drummer Carter Beauford and Moore, an established saxophonist in the local music scene. Their first album, "Remember Two Things," was released in 1993 and featured what would become the band's trademark mixture of jazz, rock and world-music stylings.

    "Jazz is probably my main influence, but at this stage I don't really consider myself a jazz musician," Moore is quoted as saying on the band's Web site. "I have plenty of space to improvise, to try new ideas."

    The band's follow-up record, "Under the Table and Dreaming," has been certified quadruple-platinum, selling over 4 million copies.

    The group was scheduled to play Tuesday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and was planning to go on with the show, according to the statement. Jeff Coffin, saxophonist for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, has been sitting in for Moore since Moore's accident.

    I've been to over 30 DMB shows, they're no longer one of my favorites but I've spent countless hours listening to them. Sad day.
