    Seriously. This is a human being who died, and probably had friends and family who are going through hell right now. Not material for you to use to posture on the internet.

    GPS. You have always been, and continue to be, worthless. People only put up with your un-funny pictures and posts because they think having an old gay guy around is some sort of novelty.

    So it happened 15 minutes before RH would have done sound check and an hour befor opening doors to the public.

    Some media reports said doors had already been open to the public.

    I also note that it's already been decided that it's cancelled with no makeup. Montreal was the only Canadian city to get a RH show since 2008.

    Scott Johnson was Radiohead’s drum tech. The 33-year-old, from Doncaster in Yorkshire, died after the top portion of the stage fell in on him as he was setting up for the show. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, band and crew.

    Apart from Radiohead, Scott also worked for bands like Keane and White Lies. Ian West, Scott Johnson’s drum teacher in Doncaster, said his former pupil toured the world with famous bands, including Radiohead and Keane, he told The Telegraph: “It was a very, very big shock. He was a great student and a great drummer. He got a lucky break and made the most of it, he never looked back. He was a fantastic guy, never down, very enthusiastic. He was very thoughtful and would do anything for you, he was spot on.

    Jack Brown of White Lies said on Twitter: “Devastated to learn that the man killed in the Radiohead stage collapse was drum tech Scott Johnson. Scott worked with White Lies on a show earlier in the year as my drum tech. A very talented man and a lovely guy all round. Glad to have known him. A big loss. RIP Scott.”

    Geoff Barrow of Portishead and band mate of Clive Deamer, who drums with Radiohead on this tour tweeted: “Shocking to hear the passing of crew member Scott Johnson of the radiohead tour – my thoughts and condolences are with everyone involved.”

    Tim Burgess of The Charlatans said: “Our thoughts are with the family of Scott Johnson – the drum tech for Radiohead who tragically died yesterday”

    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.

    Come on. You need this thread. You need it the same way a fat racist from Fullerton needs Mexicans to complain about.

    Now be a good boy and post some butts.

    On another note, I think most of us would agree that GPS has earned a free pass on tasteless jokes on any subject.

    From Facebook

    Hello everyone,

    As you will probably have heard the roof over the stage collapsed at our show in Toronto killing crew member Scott Johnson and injuring three other crew members. The collapse also destroyed the light show Ė this show was unique and will take many weeks to replace. The collapse also caused serious damage to our backline, some elements of which are decades old and therefore hard to replace.

    Whilst we all are dealing with the grief and shock ensuing from this terrible accident there are also many practical considerations to deal with & consequently we have to try and reschedule the following shows:

    June
    30 Roma Hippodrome Capanelle

    July
    1 Firenze Parco delle Cascine
    3 Bologna Arena Parco Nord
    4 Codroipo Villa Manin
    6 Berlin Wuhlheide
    7 Berlin Wuhlheiee
    9 St Triphon Carriere des Andonces

    We aim to announce the new dates for these shows on Wednesday 27th of June and will also supply information on how to obtain refunds on tickets if you cannot come to the show on the new date.

    We will start playing live again at Les Arenes Nimes, Bilbao BBK festival and Lisbon Optimus Alive festival.

    We will make every effort to offer the fans the very best show possible under the circumstances Ė thanks for your understanding and support.

    My heart goes out to Scott's family and speedy recovery to those injured. What happened last week was completely devastating. Wishing Radiohead and their family the best of luck for rest of their tour.....


    and Suprefan is wrong again....

    Did everyone forget that they had 2 sets of everything for the In Rainbows tour? You dont think they still have the extras of everything?

    It is their guitar and bass amps. As they use fairly rare models, it might take them a while to find replacements.

    I'd love to see Flaming Lips do their cover of "Knives Out" and Kylie Minouge's "Can't Get You Out of My Head" live one day.


    Although this whole scenario is very tragic, I found the two joke posts from the other page pretty funny lolll

    Just buy out a Radiohead cover band who probably have most of the similar gear.
