The Grammy's effed up big time!

In their annual Memorial Tribute, which pays respect to members of the music industry who have passed away in the previous year, they managed to leave out a 12 time nominee and 1 time winner!!!

LeRoi Moore, founding member and saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band, was surprisingly absent from the tribute video.

Moore passed away last August due to complications from an ATV accident.

Why the snub National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences?????

Should the Grammy's offer an apology????

  6. 6

    I actually thought the same thing last night when I was watching that part. I was waiting for him to be shown, and sadly, he wasn't.



  7. 7

    Would you please STOP insisting on apologies! For cryin out loud, when will people in this country just accept responsibility and stop "issuing" press release "apologies" just so everyone else can feel better.

  15. 15

    Jesus L is fuckin Madonna like fuckin your mother? SICK



  16. 16

    That's sad. I'm sure they'd show a Backstreet Boy, or whomever else from a group.



  17. 17

    R.I.P. guy from band who I don't give a shit about.

    Re: RedWingsFan – Thanks for noticing…well at least he posted it. I was dumbfounded….and not even a huge fan…



  20. 20

    I am pissed! As a HUGE fan of DMB, I am irate FOR them



  21. 21

    It is a complete disgrace on behalf of the Grammy committee. LeRoi was a tremendous talent who will be sorely missed. I can't believe an organization that celebrated his achievements at one time, blatantly omitted him from its tribute. Unfortunately, the DMB community will never be the same and no apology will fix that.



  22. 22

    Fuck the Grammys. DMB is bigger than the Grammys. RIP Roi.



  23. 23

    THEY DIDN'T MENTION LUX INTERIOR FROM THE CRAMPS EITHER!
    .
    RIP!



  24. 24

    no. dmb is awful.



  25. 25

    the guy's black and the grammy academy probably is 99% white. it happens all the time. Had it been Shitney, now that's another story.



  26. 26

    how can you forget someone with such talent and who was so loved…it isn't like his death went under the radar it was all over the news for like a week….can you say someones getting FIRED



  27. 27

    Yeah, I was looking for him too when they showed the pictures. How could they forget?



  28. 28

    Stupid fucks…



  29. 29

    As a huge fan of DMB, I am truly saddened that the Grammy's didn't add LeRoi to their tribute. Such a talent. DMB is one of the most successful touring acts ever. Show some respect!



  30. 30

    Billy Powell from Lynyrd Skynyrd wasn't acknowledged either.

    Re: bluesunday – Not the point…he won a grammy dumbass. It is a guild…and some of those people mentioned never even had a grammy



  32. 32

    its cuz he's black



  33. 33

    Uh yea, they suck… they left out Lux from The Cramps as well.



  34. 34

    They fucked up BIG TIME.
    *
    dissappointing BUT NOT surprising, the MOST talented ARE always overlooked

    it's only the MANUFACUTURED ones that get PUT ON A PEDALSTOOL



  35. 35

    Nice Job Grammy's!
    RIP Your Fans Remember!



  36. 36

    Fcuk the Grammys! Assholes!



  37. 37

    Makes me wonder if not being included was intentional. For example, what if his family requested he not be mentioned? Just wondering….



  38. 38

    They should also apoligize for not mentioning Richard Wright of Pink Floyd who passed away September 15, 2008 and also won many Grammys.



  39. 39

    HOW RUDE



  40. 40

    every1 else is making a dam apologfy they should to, cuz its gonna offend some ppol… as a matter of fact it offends me that they did not acknowledge that guy… (btw who is?)



  41. 41

    Leroi was an amazing talent and the former recipient of a Grammy, those assholes should have honored him. But the Grammys are a joke anyway, the band knows the fans out there miss and honor him.



  42. 42

    THEY ALSO LEFT OUT YMA SUMAC, AND ON HER WEBSITE , EVERYONE IS FURIOUS. NO ONE ON EARTH HAD A VOICE LIKE HERS. NO ONE.



  43. 43

    Re: cmelilylo – READ THE article, dumbass. Saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band, best band on the PLANET!

  44. tasha says – reply to this

    It probably was just an oversight. I'm sure they'll recognize him next year when they realize.



  45. 45

    No. Certainly not a public apology. Do you really think this was a deliberate slam? It was an oversight and nothing malicious.



  46. 46

    It's okay to acknowledge him late because black people are always late anyway!



  47. 47

    i think they should apologize…i love dave matthews band, and it was a huge loss..



  48. 48

    I was waiting for them to show him, and when they didn't, I was pissed!!! He deserves a ton of respect, he was a great talent.



  49. 49

    Hell ya they owe an apology. I was at the DMB show the day LeRoi died. The show was at Staples and it was one of the most amazing nights of my life. The love for LeRoi was so affectual. The band was in tears, people who surrounded me were in tears. He was an amazing and gifted musician who we all miss. He will be missed this year on the DMB tour.



  50. 50

    Ummm……maybe because the Dave Matthews Band SUCKS!?!?!?
    Still no excuse to overlook him, though.



  51. 51

    Did anyone hear that this guy got a contract with Purina to promote Monkey Chow on BET??



  52. 52

    Re: Hole – Credit where crdeit is due-besides we all know Mario's "Source" is TMZ!

    Re: Yermom – I LOVED THE CRAMPS! SO SAD.
    Lovely avi!

    54

    I was waiting to see him on there last night and was shocked when they left him out. I know they can't always put everyone in, but it's not like he was in some little known band, it's DMB for petes sake. RIP LeRoi.



  55. 55

    thank you! i couldn't believe they missed so many ppl, especially him! he's a damn grammy winner. he should be recognized.



  56. 56

    It was probably an oversight.



  57. 57

    Re: htwngrl – Billy Powell died in 2009. Hopefully he wont be forgotten at next years Grammys.



  58. 58

    Hope they dont't forget Rhianna next year, after Chris Brown gets done beatin her to death.



  59. 59

    Perez, you are a complete waste of space.
    You know that right? I am not telling you anything new. I have even blogged how much the world hates you. snarkhunters dot com slash perez. How do you feel about being the object of hatred and scorn?



  60. 60

    i cannot believe they forgot Leroi. He was so talented. I love DMB and Leroi is greatly missed by all true DMB fans.



  61. 61

    This is better anyhow:

    the grammy association always chooses songs people have never heard of to win song of the year



  63. 63

    I'm happy you brought this to attention, Perez! I'm still fuming about it! Fucking right they should apologize.



  64. 64

    I can't believe they would leave out LeRoi…the greatest saxaphonist to ever live. I was at the 3 night concert the week it happened and it was amazing to see how united the band was. DMB is the most talented and original band ever and deserve an apology.

    65

    It's the Grammys….if they honestly took the time to name everyone with an association with the music industry who passed during the year, the show would still be going on. A lot of these folks tend not to be health obsessed ( no disrepect to Le Roi Moore who was indeed a real talent)



  66. 66

    For SHAME on both you AND the Grammys!! Nobody mentions this guy but even worse, nobody….NOBODY mentioned anything about Lux Interior from the Cramps passing away on the 4th. What the fucking hell is going ON?? You go on and practically piss yer pants about useless, pathetic and utterly forgettable nimrods like BEEEYOUNCEEE and fucking idiots like Britt-NEIGHHHHH yet a pioneering musical icon like Lux does'nt even warrant a special mention??? I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to live during a time when musicians with REAL talent and true orginality actually changed the musical landscape with its creativity…I truly feel sorry for you poor slobs cos you've been cheated out of so very much…
