Dillinger Escape Plan:
While on their European tour rockers Dillinger Escape Plan was involved in an automobile accident when a truck hit their tour bus in Poland. The bus had pulled on to the shoulder of the road with running issues when the truck driver first hit the equipment trailer before hitting the bus. The band was headed for the show in Krakow at the time of the incident.
While there were no serious injuries, 13 people were taken to an area hospital for treatment.
As a result of the crash, the band has canceled tour dates through the month of February and hope to continue the tour in March.
Guitar player Benjamin Weinman notes that all the gear has been smashed; it will also have to be replaced before the band can continue on the tour.
This year at the annual Juno Awards will be a special one for songstress Sarah McLachlan; she is being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
The award winning music veteran began her career nearly 30 years ago while she was still a teen with October Game.
Along with her gold and platinum selling albums, she has performed at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, and three Granny Awards. She is also responsible for the creation of the Lilith Fair which brought together some of the top female artists together for a tour for a number of years.
McLachlan has also lent her time and efforts to numerous philanthropic endeavours including the establishment of a School of Music.
McLachlan will join fellow Canadians Anne Murray, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Oscar Peterson, RUSH, Burton Cummings from The Guess Who, Alanis Morissette, and Shania Twain in the Hall of Fame.
