Leroi Moore the iconic saxophone player for the Dave Matthews Band passed away yesterday from complications from a June ATV accident on his farm, according to the AP:

Moore died at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, where he was admitted with complications that arose weeks after the June 30 wreck, according to a statement on the band’s Web site. It did not specify what led to his death, and nursing supervisor Galina Shinder said the hospital could not release details.
