God bless this band! Thanks CBS for recognizing this sensational band. It has been a rough year with LeRoi passing and it seems like the healing is begining. What a bunch of talented musicians. Thank you DMB for helping us through life with your inspirational music. We miss and love you LeRoi!! Peace!!!!!!

DMB is the musical version of an ensemble cast -- a perfectly balanced team all working and playing off each other. It's not o\ften that you see a band where no one tries to hog the spotlight.

Roi will be sorely missed. May he rest in sweet peace.

Great segment! Too bad it wasn't longer. Not sure where "hiatus" comes from since DMB's been bringing the house down steadily on tour every year. Love the new album, especially Why I am and Seven. Saw the Vegas shows a couple of weeks ago, I hope they release another livetrax volume of them. Much peace LeRoi!!!

4 year hiatus???? I sure enjoyed watching them for the last four years, live and in concert and listening to new music especially "The Idea of You."

This was a great piece; DMB is my favorite band and I can't wait to see them on 4 stops over their summer tour.
I do have one qualm with the description: the band was never on hiatus. They have been touring their souls out for years, and even since Stand Up, they've been writing songs, trying new things, and trying to make it work in the studio.
Here's to Roi

DMB is simply awesome. I have been listening to them since 1993 and haven't stopped since. I can't wait for their summer tour.

Great piece! (Wish it was longer!) I echo the sentiment. Love DMB. Love LeRoi. The CD is awesome! And it is a very fitting heartfelt tribute to LeRoi.

Dave Matthews Band has been awesome for years. They are my very favorite band. LeRoi will be missed, as he played like no other.
