Radiohead Drum Tech Killed By Falling Stage
Scott Johnson, a drum tech for Radiohead, died when overhanging metalwork crashed onto a stage in a Toronto park. The tragic incident occurred about 4 p.m. Saturday, an hour before spectators were set to begin arriving for a Radiohead concert.
During setup, the scaffold-like structure collapsed from about 50 feet overhead, sending crew members scrambling. Representatives said Johnson was pinned and killed. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Radiohead issued a statement Sunday saying the band is “shattered” by Johnson’s loss.
