Founding member of the Dave Matthews Band, LeRoi Moore, has died in the USA.

The 43-year-old Moore was saxaphonist with the US college favourites, and died yesterday due to complications from a motor accident that occured earlier this summer.

Matthews is said to have paid tribute to his former bandmate and co-songwriter at DMB's sold-out show in Los Angeles last night, saying "We all had some bad news today. Our friend LeRoi Moore passed on and gave his ghost up, and we will miss him forever."
