Re: “Staind lead singer interrupts Rockfest set to save teenage crowd surfer from being molested

I was there. Yeah, kudos to Aaron Lewis for having the guts to stop a child molester.

For the record though, he said she "looked" 15. In fact the girl was 17, almost 18, so get your facts straight. Still, irrelevant. Doesn't matter if she's 17 or 27 or 87. Crowd surfing is a somewhat intimate act and if you choose to take that journey, you're going to have hundreds of hands on you as you're passed to the front. All day long, I saw drunken pervs go waaaay beyond crowd surfing and engage in what could only be called sexual assault. Again, props to the Staind singer for taking a stand.

However, for the millions of YouTube viewers who've seen Aaron's rant, a little context:

Waiting in line at 11 am to get in, two guys were chugging Jägermeister. This seemed to be the norm. Stumbling, puking, passed out white trash littered Penn Valley Park. Provide cheap alcohol and this is what you get. Hence the name Drunkfest.

I'm a happily married man, but I am not blind. Literally hundreds of boobies were staring at my eyes all day. I think it was a local holiday in the titty bars Saturday, as every "dancer" in town seemed to be there collecting beads. Hence the name "Breastfest".

Finally, most of the bands were encouraging riotous behavior. The singer of the band directly before Staind, Steel Panther, with such tender love ballads as "This Dick Ain't Gonna Suck Itself" and "Fuck The Gloryhole" actually told a supposed father in the crowd if his alleged daughter was gonna sit on his shoulders, she had to expose her bosoms. Amazingly, she obliged! Most bands were constantly playing "Rate My Boobs" from the stage. Later, Killswitch Engage told ALL the girls blocking views on shoulders, they should flash their titties. Most did. Yet I don't see anyone calling THEM misogynistic assholes.

This was the atmosphere. Get 55.000 rednecks together, add cheap alcohol and marijuana haze, throw in some aggressive heavy metal at 120 decibels and a bunch of losers who have never seen actual breasts other than their porn addiction, and this is what happens. I'm not excusing assault, almost rape, but it's no surprise Rockfest turned into an out-of-control frat party.
