Twenty-four years ago, the KROQ Weenie Roast was born. Over the years, our disc-jockeys have had the opportunity to interview bands that grew to be legends and household names. Watch Stryker, Kat Corbett, Nicole Alvarez and Beer Mug reminisce over old photos from past Weenie Roast shows.
It’s safe to say that it’s been a sad few years for the music industry. Stryker remembers Scott Weiland from Stone Temple Pilots coming out on stage one year in a dress. Another photo shows MCA and the rest of The Beastie Boys posing around Stryker, circa 2004, with the then popular men’s haircut: fauxhawk and bleached tips. Kat recalls meeting Bob Casale from Devo and wearing matching energy domes while “tattooing” each other. Although another performance from these deceased musicians is out of the question, recalling memories through photos is a close second.
This year we are bidding farewell to the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre and celebrating the start of something new at KROQ Weenie Roast 2016.
