Peace, Rage & Violence - The Disaster of Woodstock '99 Talk Is Jericho

    • Wrestling

Original Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang and veteran concert promoter John Scher staged Woodstock ’99 at the Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome, New York to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original festival. Some 400,000 fans turned out that August for the three-day event that quickly devolved into complete chaos and destruction. Now notorious for the riots, violence, fires, sexual assaults, inhumane conditions, and lack of water, the new HBOMax documentary “Woodstock ’99: Peace, Love and Rage,” attributes the concert failure to the angry, white boy, misogynist mob-mentality that was fueled by the nu metal music scene of the time. Longtime Fozzy manager and Chris Jericho business partner, Mark Willis, and longtime TIJ producer, Stacie Parra, were both at Woodstock ’99. They share their stories from the disastrous festival.
