The family of the late Radiohead drum technician Scott Johnson, who died after a stage collapse in Toronto, has set up a charity in his memory. The Scott Johnson Bursary Fund for Young Musicians will fund musical equipment in Johnson's hometown of Rotherham.
"Over the past couple of months, a number of people have asked if there is anything they can do in memory of Scott," Radiohead drummer Philip Selway said in a Facebook post. "Scott's parents have now created the Scott Johnson Bursary Fund for Young Musicians. This will fund musical equipment for young people in Rotherham in the U.K., where Scott grew up."
"It has been heart-warming to receive the kind wishes from you all," Johnson's parents said in a statement. "We have had many requests for donations in place of flowers and have set up an account that will be the Scott Johnson Bursary for Young Musicians. This will be managed by his friends locally as a fund primarily in Rotherham Schools."
