Radiohead Issue Statement on Stage Collapse Case


Radiohead have issued a statement in response to a judge’s decision to stay the charges in a case regarding a collapsed stage that resulted in the death of drum tech Scott Johnson:

We are appalled by the decision to stay the charges against Live Nation, Optex Staging, and Domenic Cugliari. This is an insult to the memory of Scott Johnson, his parents and our crew.

It offers no consolation, closure or assurance that this kind of accident will not happen again.
