Famed Producer Seriously Injured

A motorcycle crash on Saturday (6/5) seriously injured producer Daniel Lanois.  The weekend accident was severe enough to land Lanois in the intensive care unit of an LA hospital and will sideline him for at least a couple of months.  While details about the cause and consequences of the wreck were slow to come out and lack much detail, a New York Times report cited an earlier story in the Globe and Mail that quoted an industry journalist that spoke with Lanois Tuesday as having been told by the producer that he ' a lot of broken bones.'  Lanois, long considered one of the top producers in the world, is credited with a lot of great albums, including ones by U2 (several, including The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree), Bob Dylan (Oh Mercy, Time Out Of Mind), Peter Gabriel (So), and Robbie Robertson's self-titled solo album of 1987.  Rolling Stone reported in April that Lanois was working with Neil Young on a new project.
