After the terrible stage collapse incident that left 3 people injured and claimed the life of road crew member Scott Johnson (33), Radiohead were very quick to display their feelings of devastation. The concert was scheduled Saturday morning in Toronto, at Downsview Park, but found trouble when the winds started picking up. The top portion of the stage collapsed on top of Johnson during set-up for the concert.
May Scott Johnson rest in peace. We wish the family and friends the best of luck in this tough time. Radiohead drummer Philip Selway had this to say regarding the loss.
“We have all been shattered by the loss of Scott Johnson, our friend and colleague. He was a lovely man, always positive, supportive and funny; a highly skilled and valued member of our great road crew. We will miss him very much. Our thoughts and love are with Scott’s family and all those close to him.”
