Music Helps Lanois Recovery

Six weeks after a motorcycle crash nearly cost him his life (story), producer Daniel Lanois is on the mend and sounds buoyed by the music Neil Young has been giving him for an album the two had started working on just before the accident.  Crediting the fact he had a full-face helmet on as quite possibly having saved his life, Lanois still suffered a head-to-toe range of injuries that will require a lot of patience and perseverance to overcome or come to terms with.  Still, he told Nick Patch in an interview run by the Toronto Star, 'I'm lucky to be alive.  It could have been spinal.'  Of Young's new music, Lanois says the project they are working on does not include a band, but he calls the songs 'rocking', and believes they constitute 'some of his best work in some time', going on to say, 'We've really hit the motherlode.'   Toronto Star
