DANIEL LANOIS IN INTENSIVE CARE FOLLOWING MOTORCYCLE ACCCIDENT…


The singer-songwriter and producer Daniel Lanois was in intensive care after he was injured in a motorcycle accident over the weekend, The Guardian reported.

Mr. Lanois, a Quebec-born musician who has worked as a producer on albums including Bob Dylan’s “Time Out of Mind,” Willie Nelson’s “Teatro” and U2’s “No Line on the Horizon,” crashed his motorcycle in Los Angeles on Saturday. A statement from his label, Jive Records, did not specify his injuries but said that because of their “severity,” Mr. Lanois had canceled his summer tour and all other “promotional activity” for the next two months.

He had been scheduled to play a concert in Montreal before a monthlong series of performances in Europe with the Black Dub collective, a group that also includes the singer Trixie Whitley, the drummer Brian Blade and the bassist Daryl Johnson, but those dates are on hold and their album will be released “when circumstances permit,” their label said.

Larry LeBlanc, a music journalist, told the Globe and Mail newspaper that he spoke to Mr. Lanois by phone on Tuesday. “He just said, ‘Look, I got a lot of broken bones,’” Mr. LeBlanc said. “He’s always an ‘up’ person anyways.”
