I did not have my night 1 stub with me but he signed those my friends had on them. We started talking about what a great show they put on the previous night and he thanked us for our kind words but clearly wanted to get out of there so we said nice to see you again and all of us bolted. Couple hours later we were in the hotel bar hours before the show, Roi walks into the hotel (band was staying at the same one as we were) - sees us in the bar and walks over all apologetic. He explained he was in a rush to meet people for Fathers day then sat with us, chatted for a while, signed what we had, gave us backstage passes and then picked up our tab. Just a great wonderful man whom I dearly miss after hanging out having drinks with him after shows numerous times. Just thought some of the newer fans would enjoy that story t hat shows what kind of a guy Roi was!
Who's cutting onions?!

    I miss you Roi but Jeff is carrying his weight very well. I think you must be proud of him looking down from all the way up there

    Still remember exactly where I was when I was told that he'd passed. Crazy that it's been 14 years.

    Still here dancing! That Watchtower on Folsom Field always gives me goosebumps when he comes in for his solo. Wish he was still here but so grateful for the memories.

    I decided years ago I was no longer gonna be sad on 8/19, but instead listen to the beautiful sounds he created with a big smile on my face. He was amazing, never forget!

    It is hard to believe that itís been 14 years. I still remember what I was doing when I found out. They played the 8/19/08 Bartender last night on Sirius. Tough one to listen to.

    Re: R.I.P. Leroi Moore.

    I just happened upon this tribute video the band showed a few shows after Roi passed, they showed this at the Gorge apparently. I'm sure many of you have seen it, but I didn't even know it existed until now.

    Soooooooooo fantastic and so emotional!

    Live trax 11. Boydís solo. I love LeRoiís build during the solo. Unmatched tone. When I think of Roi this is one moment I always go back to. RIP and thank you
