One Dead In Stage Collapse, Chi Has Pneumonia, & Adelitas Way Added


The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station

One dead in stage collapse

 

It happened again and this time it took only one life. A stage collapse over the weekend in Toronto killed one stage hand a few hours before a Radiohead concert. The band says they are “shattered by the loss” of their drum tech, Scott Johnson. Johnson died when he was crushed by part of the stage that fell when the road crew was assembling the set up. There were also three injuries. All this happened at around 4 in the afternoon. The doors for the show were set to open at 5. Needless to say, the stage was wrecked and the sold-out show was canceled. Last year at the Indiana State Fair, just before Sugarland was set to perform, 7 people died when a stage collapsed due to high winds.

Chi has pneumonia

 

In other depressing news, Deftones’ original bassist Chi Cheng has been moved to intensive care for pneumonia. Thankfully reports indicate that he is improving. The bassist has been in a coma-like state for nearly 4 years after he was involved in a serious car accident. He had been moved from the hospital to home care about a week ago but had to head back when the pneumonia set in. For updates and to donate to help Cheng, visit OneLoveForChi.com.
