Damn...


The music world lost a gifted performer yesterday. That's LeRoi Moore, saxophonist for The Dave Matthews Band. I just saw Dave perform earlier this month and it was without Moore. I remembered thinking, "The guy that played for LeRoi was pretty good, but I hope I get to see Moore next time the band comes to town..."

And, that's not going to happen now...and I'm sad. It's weird to have someone die who you know, but don't know, and be sad about it. It's not like my day to day is going to change because of this...but I know people are sad, and there are people who were close to him who are sad...and my thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Grab a Dave CD and listen for the saxophone...he was a beast. Dave said it best last night at his show, "It's easier to leave than to be left."

I added "THE" to Ohio State University even though it kinda makes me feel like a dbag. "I attend THE Ohio State!" Why is the "THE" even in there?
