Re: R.I.P. Leroi Moore.
We all thought we saw everything there was to see about this band, but we were taking by shock here, and were robbed of a phenomenal human being. An absolute fantastic musician, a soothing saxophonist, a class act, and above all a fucking great person.
This band has changed my life, we've been through our ups and downs, but no matter what happened, I loved this band. I loved everything there is to love about them, down to their personalities, their style, their character, just about everything I liked. LeRoi was my favorite member of this fantastic band, which says a lot. The way he went about his buisness, encouraged the band, and delivered great music year after year after year, it just made me happy. And to see it all vanish so quickly, it's sad. So sad that I'm tearing up has I type this, yelling at my computer screen asking myself why LeRoi had to go?
I can't say enough about LeRoi, he touched all of our lives. Not only as a musician, but as a person. He's a role model to everyone, and to see him go this early, it just sickens me that we still have criminals roaming the streets, while Roi is gone. Really, it makes me want to vomit. So let's all take a moment and realize, we not only lost a member of the band, we lost a friend. And while we may never have met the guy in our lives, we can all agree that he was a fucking amazing person, all around.
Here's to LeRoi, your family, your music, and everything you've done for us. It's truely something special. You're off to a better place Roi.
