A drum technician for Radiohead has been identified as the victim of Saturday’s stage collapse at Downsview Field in Toronto. The band posted a tribute to the victim, Scott Johnson, on their official web site Sunday.

Drummer Philip Selway wrote:

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.

Three others were injured in the collapse. The concert was canceled and the band said that ticket holders would be refunded.
