The organisers of Sunday's (08Feb09) Grammy Awards have apologised for failing to include late Dave Matthews Band star LEROI MOORE in the tribute section of the show.
The prizegiving includes a section honouring music greats who have passed away in the last year, and Moore's absence from the list sparked a flurry of complaints following the Los Angeles event.
And now bosses at the The Recording Academy have issued a statement clarifying the decision.
The statement reads, "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.
"For the 'Encore' segment of our annual Grammy Awards telecast, unfortunately we are unable to include all of the talented and wonderful people within the allotted timeframe. The Academy recognises Moore's contributions to music and music education, and we are deeply saddened by his premature passing."
The saxophonist died following complications from a car accident in June last year (08).
