We lost our great friend Scott Johnson on Saturday. 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.
Our Beautiful boy is at rest in our village. We will tell him every day how you all have shared your love with us. We offer our public thanks to the friendship of the band and crew and kindness of the fans. Keep these feelings in your Hearts. Hugg your loved ones every day get on with your lives and make the best of it you can. Goodbye from me and Sue. Thank you all.
Long flight into terminal 5, Wagamama’s for some edamame beans and katsu curry, probably the only green thing I ever saw Scott eat such was his dislike of all things salad. Then off to the boarding gate and the final leg that would take us back to the perma drizzle of Manchester and home. Roadie limbo is what we used to call it, that time that just drifts by waiting for onward journeys, load in, line checks or hotel check in. However my roadie limbo was never dull and always filled with ideas of business plans, renovation projects or investment opportunities but then i had the pleasure of sharing my roadie limbo with Scott. I now have to put a full stop here and that hurts because i enjoyed our time together. I will be running on empty for a while but in the spirit of a good friend, we did some great things and have lots of wonderful memories and they do last forever.
Thanks for coming over Ken, we can offer nothing but words. He will leave a void that will never be filled. Take comfort in the warmth and love of strangers, its a beautiful world.
Prayers for Scott and his family and friends!
What words can I possibly say to you..dear friend...to ease your sorrow and your pain? Words gentle and true..they'd roll off my tongue and drift your way..guided by those whose hearts have mourned a loss..found the strength..and STILL have the courage to BELIEVE....
Dear Friends of our beautiful boy Scott. Myself and Sue thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kind thoughts. It is overwhelming for us to see how much Scott has touched the world and thank you for touching him. The boys from Keane have been such an influence in his life we cannot thank them enough either. The crew are his family and we have not been able to share that with them. Scott only has a double bed at home here how can we fit in all of these new sons and daughters that are now in our hearts? When will the tears stop?
Godspeed Scott. What a tragic loss, way too soon. Keeping his family and friends in my thoughts and prayers.
My thoughts with his family and friends.R.I.P and God bless you, wherever you are. Udevalla x
At Keane's Toronto performance (19June) Tom dedicated the evening to Scott making the evening a special night for them. Tom added that knowing Scott, he would have preferred that everyone had a marvelous time and that would've been how he wanted the evening to be. The crowd (me included...lol) did not disappoint!!
No words when death touches us. Just keep the good times in our hearts. My thoughts are with you.
Mil pésames a la familia y a todos sus amigos desde Paraguay mis condolencias
R.I.P SCOTT :S
This is so terrible...i saw him (and all the crew) at the gigs in México...this is a shocking new...i'm so sorry. My thoughts are with all your familly and friends....lots of love!
What a tragic loss, thinking of you at this sad time.
RIP Scott. God bless you. Just when I thought the day could not get any worse. I had been stunned by the death of Tom Maynard, and then I heard about Scott's accidents. Was struck anew by the fact how unpredictable life is and thus we should savour every moment of it.
Oh guys, im so sad :(( Ahora estara descansando en el cielo, les doy mi mas grande pesame, la familia de Keane desde Mexico te recodara y te tendra en nuestros corazones siempre Im vey sad :((
HELLO GUYS...I CANT BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...I READ THIS BAD NEWS AND THIS IS REALLY SAD =///////////...REST IN PEACE,SCOTTY!!!!!!!!!!!!...IM SURE THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU,WILL NEVER FORGET YOU...KISSES FOR ALL FROM ARGENTINA...HLN_MTHRFCKR_LA KEANERA
My condolences to his family & friends! May they be surrounded with friends to share this hard time with lots of love, if they are ready for or want to. I didn´t know him, though I think I might have seen him during 2009 (gigs where I was attending) working for Keane. @silviana86 obviously, he was working for Radiohead on the stage and the roof of the stage collapsed :( what a terrible accident and tragedy and not wanting to think if this would/could have also happened later at the gig.
Scotty - bloody devastated to learn it was you killed on Saturday - can't believe it. Saw you so many times at Keane gigs and always envied you - doing what you loved doing. Can't imagine what your family and the band are going through - life really isn't fair at times like these. Wish I'd heard your drumming. Don't ever think the band's fans don't appreciate what the crew do - they're brilliant. Hope that all these messages help in some small way and that you're sitting on a cloud somewhere amazed at all the love and support headed your way . XX
RIP Scott...way 2 soon...life is unfair ;-( all the good ones are being taken away instead of the bad ones...
I didn't know you but I have seen Keane so many times through the years I do know that the work you did will have contributed greatly to joy I experienced ever time I went to a show. Thank you and god bless. I hope your family and friends can take some comfort from knowing that you are in our thoughts.
It is very sad to go through this time, we will all be with you forever!!!He will protect you from heaven, for surely had a heart of gold!!! We all send you lots of hugs!!!! We love you so much forever!! Force!!!! We always with you in the bad and good times !!!!!!!! I love you!!!!
I am truly saddened by the death of Scott, from this photo, and by your words I can understand that he was a good boy, cheerful and kind to everyone, even if I did not know him, you can tell from her look so peaceful and nice! I send my condolences to his family, I'm so sorry. Sabrina from Catania!
Innalillahi Wainnalilaihi Rojiuun.
This is so so sad. My condolences to Scott's family and friends.
i'm sorry for you and his family...it's too soon...Tender thoughts...one more star in heart...kisses for all
Im so sorry to hear ;( "He used to be a lovely boy..." Rest in peace Scotty
Rest in peace Scott, you will be sorely missed by all of the Keane family. Deepest sympathies are with your family, friends, Tim, Tom, Richard, Jesse and the entire Keane and Radiohead crews.
Very sorry to hear this sad news. A young guy who gave so much and had so much more to give. My condolences to family and friends. xxx
He is there in you're hearts. Rest in peace dear Scott, rest in peace.
I'm so sorry for your loss. My friend and I saw you guys perform on Saturday and it was one of the greatest shows I've ever seen (even better than the last time you were in Philly), and we somehow managed to obtain backstage passes, but someone told us that you were finding out about this after the show, so despite how much I really wanted to meet all of you, we decided it was best to let you mourn the passing of a good friend, and I hope that we'll get to meet some day! I never met him, but I'm sure he was a great guy, and I hope the best for his family, friends, and you guys.
Scott, your music will never be fogotten. Rest in peace :'(
rest in pease Scott and thank you for all (
I very much regret what happened to your friend Scott, now he sleeps. Death is the enemy of all and leaves us helpless, unable to remedy. But dear friends should know that Bible explains death in familiar rather than mysterious terms. For example, it repeatedly likens dying to ‘falling asleep,’ and it describes dead people as “sleeping in death.” (Psalm 13:3); "Moreover, brothers, we do not want YOU to be ignorant concerning those who are sleeping [in death]; that YOU may not sorrow just as the rest also do who have no hope." (1 Thessalonians 4:13); (John 11:11-14) Death is also identified as an “enemy.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) More important, the Bible enables us to understand why death is like a sleep, why death afflicts mankind, and how this enemy will finally be defeated.
@liwei198870 人家都去世啦 你还板凳！ 我一看界面灰色的就知道出事了！
On behalf of all fans of Chile Keane want to send our condolences and love to all family and friends of Scott. A big hug also for the whole team Keanemusic. Blessings.
Very sad news. I can feel your pain guys. May Scott rest in peace now.
My deepest sympathies to Scott's family and friends at this sad time. RIP Scott. You will be missed.
Sorry to read these news. Peace for his soul and my thoughts for those he left behind.
So very sorry to hear of this sad news. R.I.P. Scott xx
What a treacherous and bloody business life can be. Heartfelt sympathy to everyone who knew Scott.
My condolences to all his family and friends ='( I had the chance to see his beautiful face, here in Portugal two years ago, working on the stage to Super Bock Super Bock for Keane =/ I'm so sad...really, really sad...Tender hugs to Keane and all the crew.
A big hug to family and friends. Sorry for our lost.
Touching words here by everyone on KM.com, I hope Scott's family and friends will get some strength out of it when they them, while they cope with their tragic loss. RIP Scott! Your star will shine brightly
Sorry for you guys, you must be very sad now. Hold on
This makes me extremely sad. Even when I didn't know him by name, I've seen him many times at the Keane concerts I've been to. Condolences to everyone who knew him.
I'm very, very sorry for your loss.
Rest in peace! :( What's happen with him? :(
It was such a sad news :( I'm feeling really sorry although I've never exchange a word but I remember him very well, always placed on the left side of the stage doing his job. Rest in peace Scott, my condolences to family and friends in this tough time. Carmen
I met you briefly. Through my big friend Paulinha you realized one of my biggest dreams, so that means that you are somehow a small part of my life and I thank you for that. All my thoughts go to Scott's family, friends and people who closely worked with him. May you rest in peace, Scott.
R.I.P. DEAR SCOTT :(
Devastating news! My heart is with his family and friends!! We will never forget you! RIP Scott!
I'm so sad to hear that. Losing someone close to us is a very painful experience and when others go through the same loss, we can truly understand. Scott was a lot of things to many people and will be missed tremendously. I will make a prayer for his soul & family. Regina.
........ speachless, what more is there to say, its just so sad .............my thoughts go out to his family and friends....
So tragic. My thoughts are with Scott's family and friends.
scott was my uncle davids bestfriend, he's had such an impact on my uncles and my mums life and i respect him for that. scott was a lovely man and the pleasure was all mine to know him. he's an inspiration to me and he didn't deserve to go the way he did. i still can't get over the fact that he's gone, he was such an amazing man. r.i.p scotty, you keep bashing those drums in the sky, we're all gonna miss you xx
I am really sorry that a person so close to you just died. I heard about the Radiohead stage collapse, but I never imagined it was someone who also worked with you!. The thought that someone (so young!!) dies in his/her workplace is just absurd. My most sincere condolences to his family and friends.
I'm so sorry for your loss! I'm keeping his family and friends in my thoughts.
R.I.P. Scott! My condolences to his family and friends.
I´M SO SORRY... IT´S SO SAD, MY APOLOGIES FOR HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS! BLESS YOU SCOTT, WE´LL MISS YOU
My condolences from Chile to Scott's family & friends
Very sorry to hear this tragic news; never met him but could see how loved and respected he was within the Keane family having been with you since 2004. My thoughts to all of his friends and family with such a painful loss. xxx
It's so unfair that sometimes life is cut off so quickly. Rest in peace, Scott.
rest in peace, scott, my thoughts go to everyone who knew you and was close to you. xxxx
Rest in Peace Scott, our prayers are with you, your frinds and your family. We miss you
So very sad xxxxxxxx
Rest in Peace Scott....I never got to meet you...and now never will. Taken too soon seems a silly epitaph to use in this case but what else can be said? A cut in the soul of Keane and many other bands that knew you and had the pleasure of your warm heart and generous nature. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this time....and hope that his spirit and joy for life will be forever remembered xxxxxx
It's so sad. The saddest part of life is that we will all die someday, we just don't know when, where, how or why. He lived his life in the best way, being happy and making others happy. He will live on in spirit as he left his mark on so many people in the good way he led his life.
My condolences go to Scott's family and friends.
what a tragedy... so young, Rest in Peace Scott, our prayers with you and your family,
Love is the End. Barcelona. Marisa.

So saddened by this loss. My thoughts go out to his family and friends and to all who worked with him. Rest in Peace Scott.
What a horrible accident :( This is incredibly sad...my condolences to Scott's family & friends.
a sad new all my support for you guys and especially to Scott's family lots o love from México
So, so sad. My heart goes out to his family and friends...
Such a tragic loss. I am so sorry for Scott and for all the loved ones he's had to leave behind. Memories will eventually help heal some of the grief, but for now, it is just sad, sad, sad. A kind soul gone much too soon. Go in Peace, Scott. .....If Keane need personal time right now away from the tour gigs to be at services for Scott, I believe they should take it. The concerts can wait. Your fans will still be there for you when you are ready to resume. Remember folks, arms around each other......Sherry W., MI, USA.
RIP Scott!! My thoughts go out to your family and friends at this difficult time! I think every Keane fan that has seen or met you has a special place in their hearts for you! You helped to make our Keane concerts special!
A sad loss. R.I.P Scott.
Lost for words. RIP Scott. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends, Anna xxxx
So sad, love to his family & friends at this difficult time-sometimes life is just not fair :(
So sorry to hear this tragic news. My thoughts are with Scott's family and friends. May he rest in peace.
God Bless him and his family. This is incredibly sad and shocking. I hope you're all doing well.
I'm sorry guys. life gives you unexpected things that are hard to accept. We'll miss you,Scott http://keanemusic.com excellent
I remember Scott before quite a few shows, a familiar face, helping, setting up the stage, and checking sound. He was always welcomed by the fans waiting for the concert, and he was always so kind to us. I was in Philadelphia with some keane fans last Saturday. We didn't know about all this, but I remember we talked about the "old" crew, and about Scott, sharing some of our pre-concert happy memories. How sad, and he was so young. This is just my little memory of him, and even if I didn't know him in person, I was so grieved to hear about this horrible new. My thoughts are with family and friends. Simona
Very sad!! He was very young! I remember that in the concert in Bogotá I recorded him while he verified Rich's drums and I waited that he listened to me call him and he turned to see us... I wanted to return the time Rest in peace, Scott! My thoughts are with his family, with Keane and Radiohead. :'-(
We are all with you
Really terrible news. Much love to everyone who knew him xxxx
May Heaven Bless Him!
Keane and Radiohead family united in grief. In the end, we always will have thougt that we still had so much time ahead...
My heart goes out to Scott and his family and friends. He was so good to us, I pray God has great plans for him. RIP Scott!
When I heard about the accident, I was horrified - but we didn't know who had passed. Now knowing that it was Scott - who I've spoken to briefly over the years at gigs, makes this even more tragic. He is a wonderful shining light gone too soon. R.I.P Scott & my thoughts are with him, his family & his Keane/Radiohead family.
I can't express in words how sad I am... Rest in peace Scott, we will miss you so much :-(
All the peace and love for you, Scott.
I still can't believe he is gone. It's like a nightmare and it seems that soon I will wake up and he will be around. Rest in peace. I will remember your smile and how you played with us during the PS tour here in Brazil. You were funny and kind, you were always smiling. We are gonna miss you terribly :/ My condolences to his family and all his friends. Fernanda, (The Frog Prince Squad)
My deepest sympathies to Scott's family and friends. May he live forever in your memory and hearts. Di
I never had the pleasure of meeting Scott, only seeing him from afar. I remember at the first Keane gig I went to, I saw him come out on stage to get things set up, and, having seen pictures and mentions of him on the forum, I got all excited - That's Scott! I remember thinking. It was if the band themselves had walked out on stage as he is as much a part of Keane as Tom, Tim, Jesse, Richard, Beth, Colin, etc. It is always so hard to lose someone, especially when they were so young and had so much of life still ahead of them, but those who crossed his path will have wonderful memories of a wonderful person. My deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, Keane, Radiohead and all those he touched throughout his life; may he rest in peace.
I hadn't realize it was linked to the Toronto accident. It's really "un coup du sort". Life is so strange sometimes. It must be a terrible shock for everybody.
This really is too sad for words. My thoughts are with Scotts family and friends at this horrible time.... Keanes fans will never forget you, RIP Scott x
Rest in Peace. We will miss you, Scotty ♥
It's so sad. I'm really sorry to read such news. All my support to his family and friends.
Descansa en paz, Rest in peace.
I'm sorry, it is always difficult and painful to face a loss.
It's shocking how someone's life can be taken away so quick and so unexpectedly... Rest in peace, Scott. You will be truly missed in the Keane world. My condolences to his family and friends.
RIP Scott. :'( I don't know how to face all this sudden but... no, please no. the one you talked to just a year ago, working very hard and carefully till the midnight after each gig, giving drumstick to you, and telling you "would like to come back again" ... NO :'(((
I can't even believe what had happened, I've always loved the Keane Crew besides loving the band and it's horrible to know about such a tragedy. Life's mad and sometimes quite unfair. I just can wish my best to Scott's family and especially for you all, I know you must be so down and I want to make you know that we are all with you. For many of us, Scott was a part of Keane too. Beth, Colin, Rob, Tom Pierce, Adam, Ant and Tony as well. I'm so sorry for your loss. Rest In Peace Scotty.
RIP Scott. You will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers going out to his family and friends.
RIP Scott. Sometimes life just isn't fair :(
this is so sad. my thoughts with his family and friends. the keane world will miss you loads :(
Indeed, he showed us the good side of everything ... and the betrayed us all. A great loss for us. You are in a beautiful place. A big hug of encouragement for family and friends. Miss you!
Gracias Scott por todo lo grande que has hecho.....
What a f**king accident! May he rest in peace... I'm so sorry...
How stupid death looks like when someone so young and full of joy passed away in a tragic way like that. I remember him very well, particularly from the PS tour when I saw him 6 times preparing the stage and joking with us at front row. I hope he has gone doing something he had a real pleasure and very proud of working with such a fantastic band like Radiohead. I'll miss him. The Frog Prince Squad truly will miss him.
Saturday was a black day. My condolences to family and friends. Rest in Peace.
Very sorry for this loss,now Scott rests in peace i'm sure of it because the Bible teaches us about it (Ecl. 9:5),surely he's better than all of us 'cos this world is going worst everyday,and there is a beautiful hope.(John 5:28,29). My thoughts,love and hugs to all concerned from Mexico City. ♥ =,(
What a terrible loss. I wish peace and healing to everyone who loved Scott.
There are no words to express how we feel about this tragic news. =( I know he can't hear me but I'd like to thank him one last time for his kindness over the years, you'll sure be missed Scott! My condolences to his family and friends. May you rest in peace now.
So saddened by the news. Rest in Peace, Scott :(
Scott was a familiar face who I always looked forward to seeing when you guys came to Philadelphia. My heartfelt condolences go out to you all. I'll always remember him as a hard working guy with a big smile, always ready to share a laugh. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
Scott, how can this tragic story be related to you. I am still in total disbelief and can not really believe it. You have been on the Keane journey with the band and fans alike. You always had a smile, passed the time of day but always the professional when working. It is such a tragedy, I find it hard to believe that we wil not see your cheery face at one more show. My thoughts go out to all those who knew, loved, and worked with you. Forever with us at every concert, you will not be forgotten. RIP Scott. X
mis condolencias desde argentina a la familia de scott y a sus amigos ):
I am really sorry. May he rest in pace
:( So, so sorry for your loss. He was way too young. Has a memorial fund been set up for him?
Scott，God bless you！ I hope the best for his family and friends！
Rest in peace Scott, you will be sorely missed. I hope the best for his family and friends xx
Rest in Peace Scott. Another star is shining bright in the sky tonight, My thoughts are with family and friends.
