Junos Kick Off With First Award Night

By Andrew Flynn

ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) -- The good ship Juno sounded her horn in St.
John's harbour Saturday with an official kickoff celebration to honour
the year's best in Canadian music.

At the first of two Juno awards nights being held in the city, the
non-televised event saw the presentation of 28 statuettes and two
special lifetime achievement awards.

Hamilton native Daniel Lanois, who received two Grammy awards this year
for his work with Irish megastars U2 and this year a lifetime
achievement Juno, took best producer.

Stars from around the world -- Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris and Willie
Nelson among them -- celebrated Lanois' career on a video reel.

U2 lead singer Bono called Lanois an "extraordinarily gifted man and

"From you we have our best work -- under the threat of violence of
course," Bono said, barely keeping a straight face as the group's other
three members sang "Danny Boy" in the background.

"Canada is lucky to have you."

Okay, there was another article that goes more in-depth into Lanois and it says that the higlights of last night's thing will be on tonight's awards...so WATCH it and tape it.

LOL one of my Canadian friends is taping it for me.

Gotta get whatever morsel of U2 is offerred to us. ;)

But the thing that kills me is that is says, "Bono said, barely keeping a straight face as the group's other
three members sang "Danny Boy" in the background." THE OTHER THREE? So they are all singing? Larry and Adam as well? Pricless!

Yep, I saw it! And I had no idea about the awards to Daniel Lanois and Michael Cohl, so I almost fell off the couch when I saw the U2 clips! I was watching to see my other fave band, the one that opened the show!

U2 spoke about Cohl too, as he worked with them also. It was cool to watch!

The four of them sang a little their little speech to Cohl. All for of them. Very lovely :-)

And btw, Bono didn't keep a straight face, as he cracked up laughing, leading the other three to laugh too during they Danny Boy singing :-) Hehehe!

Oh and after saying "Canada is lucky to have you", Bono kept on saying "Canada doesn't need you. WE do." :-) Ya gotta love the man!
