Lessard slams Grammys for omitting LeRoi
Dave Matthews Band has often gotten the snub from the Recording Academy over the years, with only two wins out of 13 Grammy nominations over the years. This year, however, bassist Stefan Lessard is particularly peeved at the Academy for their omission of late bandmate LeRoi Moore from this year's Grammy "In Memoriam" segment. During Sunday night's Grammy telecast, the normally soft-spoken Lessard posted to his Twitter page, "It just goes to show how full of s*** the Grammys have become." Minutes later, Lessard posted the more upbeat tweet, "You All make me proud! Truely [sic] kick ass, Roi knew that, he loved you all."
