Subtle Member Receives Major Settlement From Ford

A San Francisco jury awarded Dax Pierson an $18.3 million settlement on Wednesday, finally bringing an end to a long court case against Ford. In 2005, the Subtle keyboardist was in the group’s van when it hit a patch of black ice and flipped, causing Pierson’s seat to come lose. His head then hit the roof, fracturing Pierson’s spine and leaving him paralyzed. Despite all of this, Pierson played on Subtle’s latest LP, ExitingARM, with the help of the computer program Ableton Live.
