Leroi Moore: September 7, 1961 – August 19, 2008


From the Dave Matthews Band website:

We are deeply saddened that 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. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program.

Rest in Peace.

Update (8/21): Listen to a sweet solo from LeRoi on an unreleased Soko track.

Send dirk A Thong

Birdchick suggests:

Hey, maybe we could pick our favorite endangered species thong from Birdorable and mail them in to Dirk Kempthorne, secretary of the Interior, to let him know how much we dislike the proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act?

Whether you agree or not with the changes certainly giving dirk a collection of thongs to fondle will give him something important to do during the remainder of his time working for the mob government.
