The Band Plays On...

The Dave Matthews Band performed on Tuesday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles despite the news that saxophonist LeRoi Moore, absent from the group's current tour after suffering an injury in June, had died earlier that day. According to People, Matthews paid tribute to his late bandmate one song into the show, saying, "We all had some bad news today. Our good friend LeRoi Moore passed on and gave his ghost up today and we will miss him forever." The audience shouted Moore's name out as the band resumed playing, with Matthews later adding, "It's easier to leave than be left."
