James Taylor keeps skiing despite mishap in Park City
March 17, 2011
James Taylor says a broken leg won’t keep him off the slopes.
An assistant for the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter says Taylor fractured his left fibula and injured his left shoulder in a fall Monday on an expert trail while on vacation with his family in Park City.
The accomplished skier was treated at a hospital and had a doctor fashion a movable split he hopes will fit in his boot and allow him to ski later in the week. Park City Medical Center Public Relations Director Amy Roberts confirmed that Taylor was treated in the ER and released.
Taylor says given all the problems in the world, his "stupid" ski mishap was "nothing."
Taylor was among 20 people honored by President Barack Obama earlier this month in a salute to the arts and humanities.
He is scheduled to host and perform at a benefit at Carnegie Hall next month.
