Grammy-winning engineer-producer and Maple Jam Music Group prexy Greg Ladanyi died in the Greek Republic of Cyprus Tuesday. He was 57.

Ladanyi suffered severe head trauma in an on-stage accident Friday while touring with Greek vocalist Anna Vissi, a Maple Jam artist.

He won a 1982 Grammy for his engineering work on Toto’s “Toto IV” and received a Grammy nomination as producer of the year for his work on Don Henley’s 1984 hit “The Boys of Summer.” He also collected a Latin Grammy nod for work on Jaguares’ album “Bajo el Azul de Tu Misterio.”

Ladanyi was well known for his work on albums like Henley’s “Building the Perfect Beast,” Jackson Browne’s “Running On Empty” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Behind the Mask.”

L.A.-based Maple Jam Music Group is a diversified management, label, publishing, and studio firm that numbered Type O Negative and Hollywood Undead among its clients.

Plans for a private service are pending.
