Biography
Saxophone player LeRoi Moore (born Gary Lee Moore on September 7, 1961, in Dunn, NC) was a founding member of the Dave Matthews Band. The classically trained Moore, who was also proficient on bass guitar, flute, bass clarinet, and wooden pennywhistle, had been an integral part of the Charlottesville, VA, jazz scene when he hooked up with Matthews for a recording session in 1991. Moore would go on to appear on all of Matthews' records, providing many of the arrangements and co-writing the songs Too Much and Stay. He was also a valued session musician, lending his skills to alternative rock outfit Code Magenta's 1996 debut album and jazz fusion combo Soko's 2000 debut, In November Sunlight. On June 30, 2008, Moore sustained numerous injuries in an ATV accident on his farm outside of Charlottesville. After spending a week in the hospital, Moore was released, only to find himself rehospitalized several days later. He died from complications resulting from the crash on August 19, 2008, at the age of 46. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
