Daniel Lanois

Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: September 19, 1951    

”I want to leave something behind that means something,” Daniel Lanois told Rolling Stone' s James Henke, explaining his singular approach to life and record making. “Am I going to follow my own ideas and philosophies, or am I just going to fall in the rut of doing rubbish for the sake of making a living?” Lanois's decision to follow a more meaningful approach led him from recording groups in a homemade studio in the 1970s to forging a partnership with avant-garde producer Brian Eno in the early 1980s to producing some of the best-known--even legendary--acts in popular music, including U2, Peter Gabriel, Robbie Robertson, the Neville Brothers, and Bob Dylan.
