Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center nursing supervisor Galina Shinder said the hospital will not specify what led to Moore death since the details were classified.

Dave Matthews band had a performance on Tuesday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, through which Dave Matthews confirmed the death of Leroi Moore to the fans after the first song. “It’s always easier to leave than be left,” Matthews told the crowd. Dave Mathew’s rock band was incepted in 1991 in Charlottesville, Va. Dave Matthews was working as a bartender. The formation of the band went through when Dave showed a demo tape of his songs to Leroi Moore. Leroi liked it and he trained his friend and fellow jazzman Carter Beauford to play drums, and other musicians leading to a big band ‘the Dave Mathew’s band’.
