The Grammy Apology

this is apparently The Press Release:

"When LeRoi Moore passed in August 2008, The Recording Academy® issued the following statement: 'GRAMMY® winner LeRoi Moore was a versatile and inventive saxophonist. A classically trained musician, his love of jazz infused the Dave Matthews Band's music with jazz and funk overtones that helped define the group's eclectic and signature sound. His untimely passing is a loss to music fans everywhere, and our heartfelt sympathies go out to the band, his family and all who were moved by his music.' Nearly 250 members of our music community have passed in the last year, and all of them have been listed in the program book for the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards, including LeRoi Moore. The Academy recognizes Moore's contributions to music and music education, and we are deeply saddened by his premature passing."

Neil Portnow
President/CEO

    Wow, way not to acknowledge that you fucked up. Why don't you have Stevie Wonder play with the Jonas Brothers again. That'd be a real hoot.

    I for one am not going to support anything that comes out of the Grammy's until an apology is made. Neil can suck my pubes.

    I see "Neil Portnow"...I think of "Jeff Portnoy" from Tropic Thunder. What a joke. Dude should sit on Lex Steele for punishment.

    That's more of an excuse, but certainly not an apology.

    Re: The Grammy Apology

    that's not an apology. i wonder how many of the other 250 "members of the community" had grammy nominations (let alone won one), packs as many shows as dmb does, and has a fan base as large and dedicated as they do

    Where did this come from? It's a half-assed attempt at an apology.

    I'm not surprised that this would be the statement they released. An acknowledgement of Leroi's passing and contributions, followed by a lame attempt to make a lousy excuse.

    Re: The Grammy Apology

    its such bullshit considering there were some shots where they'd throw like 4 musicians up at once...for instance 4 saxophone players. there is no reason in hell they couldn't have put leroi in one of those groupings...he didn't have to get his own full screen shot with his music playing. although i believe he deserves that
