MTV's Kurt Loder went off the air from Woodstock 99 at 11 p.m. ET Sunday, telling viewers he and co-host Serena Altschul had to leave. State troopers were rolling in, and bonfires were blazing out of control.
"It was dangerous to be around. The whole scene was scary. There were just waves of hatred bouncing around the place," Loder said Monday, back in his New York MTV office. "It was clear we had to get out of there."
