This says a bit more, but not much:

CANOE -- JAM! Music: Daniel Lanois in motorcycle crash

Canadian record producer, guitarist and singer-songwriter Daniel Lanois is in intensive care in Los Angeles following a motorcycle crash on the weekend and concert dates in Europe this summer have been cancelled.

Jive Records sent out a release Tuesday saying Lanois suffered "multiple injuries" in the crash.

"(He) is expected to be released from intensive care soon. Due to the severity of the injuries, Lanois has cancelled all upcoming tour dates and promotional activity and will be recuperating for the next two months," the release said.

Lanois's website (daniellanois.com) lists several dates in Europe in July.

It also says he was scheduled to perform at the Montreal International Jazz Festival on July 2.

"We were informed that sadly, Daniel Lanois won't be able to perform in Montreal because of his accident," festival spokesman Hugo Leclerc told QMI Agency Tuesday.


Lanois started his producing career with brother Bob in their mother's basement in Ancaster, Ont. He purchased a home in Hamilton to form Grant Avenue Studios.

He has worked with U2, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel and Canadian children's singer Raffi. His 1995 collaboration with Emmylou Harris on the album Wrecking Ball nabbed him a Grammy for best contemporary folk album.

He had recently started the new trio, Black Dub (blackdub.net).

Lanois took to his Twitter account on Saturday to say he was wrapping up in L.A. and heading to Canada.

"Sweeping up in LA. Headed to the canoe for Black Dub rehearsals soonish.

Nuit Blanche plans with the Toronto team," he wrote.

Jive Records recently signed Black Dub and the release said their debut album will be released "when circumstances permit."

The universe is screwing with U2 and their people. This is bad news. Wishing you speedy recovery Daniel. Whoever is behind this bad spell they are putting on the band: it's not funny anymore! I think it's Bon Jovi - I hear he has a new album coming out...probably trying to get the competition out of the way before he goes on tour

A couple of new details concerning the accident:
Quote:
...
Lanois was riding in the hilly Silverdale section of L.A. when he fell. He reportedly suffered multiple injuries but is expected to be released from intensive care soon, according to a statement from Jive Records. He will be recuperating for the next two months.

Veteran music journalist Larry LeBlanc, a long-time friend of Lanois, spoke to the musician on Lanois’s cellphone Tuesday. The musician said he had many broken bones and indicated he was in pain, but spoke lucidly and did not seem noticeably under heavy sedation.

“He just said, Look, I got a lot of broken bones,” LeBlanc said. “He’s always an ‘up’ person anyways.”
...

News of Lanois’s accident was a surprise to many. Even some people close to Lanois, who is known as a private person, were said to have been unaware of his injuries.
