Re: R.I.P. Leroi Moore.

As I mentioned somewhere else; Jeff is great and plays the music, but Roi was PART of the music. Such a different, different band without him. We lost the true DMB on that same day unfortunately.

    This is a really great way to put it.

    the 'Why Don't We' Memphis '94 sound-check and the Typical Situation from Flat Five studio... I just love the way Roi plays.

    was lucky to see Roi in Mansfield days earlier. Would have never guessed it would be the last time I'd see him alive.

    His last show is here:

    Thinking of you, Mr. Leroi Moore!

    11 years ago. Crazy. I’ll still never understand how the band mustered up the strength to play that staples center show.

    It's amazing that they even kept going. While I've very glad they did, I think we all would have understood if Roi's passing marked the end of DMB.

    Rest in peace, Roi! We appreciate all you left us with!

    Can't believe it's been 11 years. I vividly remember being in Staples Center on this night in 2008 and watching the band heal themselves with the music. Unreal experience.

    Is there a comprehensive list/thread with all of Leroi's best released solos?

    Was there as well and was just reflecting on it. What a night. I definitely feel closer to the band for having been there for those two shows in L.A.

    Forever missed.

    Here's a lovely clip of Roi creating beautiful sounds at the Gorge in 2002 to send everyone into the long weekend.

    I'm not a hardcore fan anymore. Time moves on and things change in life, but I go back every once in a while to the old DMB videos and I did that today. The way this man played the sax was really what got me hooked when I went to see them for the first time in 93 at the old Georgetown Bayou. I must have replayed 9/14/2003 Spoon 10 times today.. just to hear LeRoi.

    I could have written your first two sentences. I have barely managed a show a year for a while now. For many years I had woven DMB into every aspect of my life...followed every set in real time (when that became possible), posted on every website (and wrote for one too), really lived and breathed it all every day.

    For whatever reason, I have felt drawn back the past few weeks; re-listening to shows, re-reading the (sometimes stupid) things I wrote, thinking about all the people I met, decisions I made (and didn't make) during those days. It almost feels like a different life.

    One constant though, even being 'away' for a while, is how much I miss his sound. I am so damn grateful he left us so much beautiful music to enjoy.

    Roi had the best sense of melody out of anyone in the band. His playing on LS Captain gives me chills.

    Re: R.I.P. Leroi Moore.

    So Dave played Mercy w/ Branford Marsalis for the United We Sing show yesterday. I've said this/pointed it out before, but Branford was a clear influence on Roi and they also approach improvising/writing parts for pop/rock similarly. While it was distinctly Branford playing, the lines and inflections he played could have easily come from Roi.
