They’re one of the top jam bands in the world today, synonymous with good times and free spirits. But last night the Dave Matthews Band experienced bitter sadness.
Earlier in the day, one of the band’s founding members, saxophonist LeRoi Moore died at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center due to complications from an all-terrain vehicle accident earlier this summer.
As reported previously by the Gossip Girls, the series of Live Earth concerts across seven continents got started off with a bang yesterday (July 7). Just 24 hours later, the global party has come to an end - but the hope is that the event's message will live on for quite some time to come.
Live Earth was organized by former Vice President Al Gore with the goal of raising awareness about global warming. With over 100 musical acts joining in on the cause, the entertainers played to the crowds - with many offering up messages to the over 2 billion people expected to experience the shows through television, radio and the Internet.
