Music Box: Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage

It's on HBO and maybe Netflix.

It made Altamont look like a love fest.

Interesting perspectives from some artists that played there and attendees.

I like music history and how they interact with the culture at the time.

It's not always pretty.

I saw the same documentary and it is an eye opener. Limp Bizkit/Wes Borland was probably my first "guitar hero". I remember trying to play Breakstuff and not understanding why my Epiphone didn't make the same noise when I detuned it and put on the "heavy" effect via my Digitech RP300. Def worth a watch!

You mean Corporatestock 99? No surprise that turned into a sh!tshow. Had nothing in common with Woodstock. Just more merchandizing of the counterculture.

I watched that one a couple of weeks ago. Yeah...that was a complete **** show! Then again, every Woodstock festival seemed to be a disaster on some level. This one went into the stratosphere.

The only thing I know about Woodstock '99 is that I've seen footage of the audience covered in mud while RHCP was completely nude on stage. :confused:

That was actually Woodstock '94. I was at that festival - front and center for that RHCP set, in fact - and it was awesome!

While '94 was dubbed "Mudstock" because of all the rain, in '99 there were a large population of the crowd also covered in "mud". I typed that in quotes because it seems the "mud" wasn't mud at all but the overflow from the porta-potties so yeah...there was that at Woodstock '99. :confused:

(and Flea unfortunately did play naked as well :()

More than mud, the porta potties were overflowing and the mud was mixed with raw sewage.

Now there's a fun time.
