Tributes paid to Radiohead roadie
Man killed in stage accident
TRIBUTES have been paid to a drum technician who was killed when a stage collapsed ahead of a Radiohead concert.
Scott Johnson, 33, from Doncaster in Yorkshire, died when the top portion of the stage fell on top of him as he was setting up for the Radiohead show in Toronto, Canada.
A message on the radiohead.com website said: “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.”
