Keane - Keane Remember Late Drum Technician

British rockers Keane have offered up a touching tribute to the drum technician who died after an horrific stage accident at a Radiohead concert on Saturday (16Jun12).
Scott Johnson, who previously toured with Keane, was killed when the stage at Downsview Park in Toronto, Canada collapsed just hours before Radiohead was due to perform.
The devastated Creep hitmakers called off their show and later posted condolences on their official website, writing, "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."
Now Keane have followed suit by remembering the 33 year old for his professional work ethic and kindness.
A statement from the band reads, "Scott has been part of our touring family since 2004, working as drum tech, stage manager, and studio tech, but he gave us so much more - he saw the good in everything.
"He was the cheerful, dependable guy you could always turn to, who lifted the spirits of everyone around him. We can't believe he's gone. Our thoughts are with his family and friends; Radiohead and their crew. We love you Scotty, we'll miss you."
Johnson had also toured with other U.K. bands including Portishead and The Charlatans.
