Cro-Mags frontman says festival promoter ripped off bands

Thu, September 22, 2016 6:45 AM PT7,858 views

This past weekend Cro-Mags and Murphy's Law, among others, performed in Brooklyn, NY as part of The Warriors Fest 2, the second installment of a festival intended to celebrate the iconic 1979 film, The Warriors. Unfortunately, it appears that none of the festival participants have been paid. Cro-Mags frontman John Joseph has issued the following statement:
"This drug addict ASSHOLE, Eric Nyenhuis who promoted The Warrior Fest - ripped everyone off for tens and thousands of dollars. The actors, the Cro-Mags and Murphy's Law, the security, the soundman who brought his P.A., people who paid for merchandise on line, those who bought tickets for the fest and concert, and many, many more. He lied and bullshitted his way since Saturday even faking a heart attack (his meth-head girl called 911) because people wanted their money and shit was about to get ugly for him. Do not trust this guy ever! He's a low-life P.OS. who swore he's a friend and would never rip us off. Well, all I can say is I hope it was worth it because he's in a world of shit right now on many, many levels. And BTW us and Murphy's Law both played for our people who came out. 'Cuz that's what men with HONOR do... unlike that parasite. This ain't no Warriors Movie, dumb ass - this shits for REAL and you ain't gonna be running much longer - a dude went to prison for doing a similar thing for a fest he promoted - he'll be lucky if he ends up there."

>Cro-Mags frontman says festival promoter ripped off pants. "He just ripped them off! Before I knew what was going on we were making passionate love. It was one of the most erotic experiences in my life, and I played in a band with Harley Flanagan!"

I think it's 'tens OF thousands'

Regardless of if dude ripped everyone off, JJ is an idiot. 50 year old internet shit talk is weak. Put it all over the internet that you plan on tuning this dude up... what happens after that? you have a trail of geriatric internet shit talk leads right back to you. JJ never been the smartest.

harley stabbed mike the asian while jon joseph was hiding backstage like a bitch

anonymous 9/22/2016 1:53:28 PM

I believe my name is Mike the asian, thank you very much.

anonymous 9/22/2016 1:55:26 PM

DMS is going to send Karebear and Ian to slap this guy into a coma. I smell a legal fundraiser. Maybe Harley can get Bourdain to talk about it on farts unknown.

anonymous 9/22/2016 2:08:23 PM

If the aids don't get you the promoters will.....

anonymous 9/22/2016 2:11:10 PM

That guys punishment should be to tie his ass to a chair and force him to listen all of Danny Diablo's rap albums while Hoya farts in face for the smoking word.

anonymous 9/22/2016 2:12:17 PM

Chaka Malik here, this guy will never book a Burn show I promise the nyhc community. Did anyone by the new ep yet?

anonymous 9/22/2016 3:08:05 PM

>Yet Harley stabbed one of them and NOTHING was done about it. You are a retardo. Dude was beat up, arrested, and had court appearances. His case got tossed when it was proven that he did not start the fight and was defending himself.

JJ (has)never been the smartest. says the hardcore guy who failed general English courses in high school

anonymous 9/23/2016 2:43:33 PM

Yet Harley stabbed one of them and NOTHING was done about it. Harley was f'd up pretty badly, I wouldn't say NOTHING was done about it. Also, if something happened to Harley the cops would know exactly where to look. Just because people are involved in street life doesnt make them stupid to the point where they would willingly do time. Maybe think before you say something

anonymous 9/23/2016 6:16:59 PM

*warriors,come out to play-yay....*

anonymous 9/25/2016 7:53:59 PM

Off topic but isn't John Joseph 4 feet tall?

anonymous 9/26/2016 6:20:43 AM

Maybe he can pay them in meth

anonymous 9/26/2016 8:02:09 AM

Gotta say I thought John Jospeh was smarter than this. I guess I was wrong. Posting open threats to someone that end up on every social media site and underground music site win your signature on them is about the dumbest thing you can do. He better hope his guy dies of natuarl causes when he's 80 because if anything happens to him in the next 20 years and whoever does it is wearing anything remotely to do with NYHC or the CroMags gear they're gonna charge John as an accessory.

JJ is at he bottom of the list of suspects if anything happens to that guy.

anonymous 10/27/2016 2:00:13 PM

I know this for fact. Eric will pay the bands as he has paid a huge chunk of money owed. He is honorable. What I can't understand is why the entire truth NOT being told? The bands were told they would play by some very large guys that were not there with anyone. I was told that Eric did not have a heart attack but did faint as I also heard he was being shaken down by everyone in Coney Island and no one said anything but they are quick to jump on Eric.

anonymous 12/6/2016 2:29:28 PM

I was there I SAW JJ get PUNKED by the bikers and TOLD that he better play or he was getting beat up and his stuff taken. Can you tell the truth JJ? Didn't they surround your van? I also know that the bikers took every dime from the promoter and walked of with his register. CRO MAGS PLAYED because they were told THEY BETTER….TELL THE TRUTH MCGOWEN

anonymous 12/7/2016 11:05:27 AM

Eric has been scamming people for many, many years! Please save yourself a lot of heartache and GOOGLE his name before dealing with him. If it comes from his mouth, it is a lie. He lies because he is nothing but a loser druggie. People be smart about whom you deal with!

anonymous 12/17/2016 9:10:35 AM

Hey anonymous….PROOF….Here are the FACTS the bands were extorted into playing by the bikers. The Vendors were shaken down. The Biker "LOVERBOY" told Eric he is not getting a dime. Eric LOST $90.000+ You can say what ever you want Eric Druggie blah blah blah…but when you HIDE behind the internet it shows that your either scared and LYING or both.

anonymous 12/27/2016 10:03:15 AM

This is to the one who is sticking up for ERIC....Hey Eric we KNOW its you....STFU!

anonymous 1/29/2017 6:36:07 PM

Not Eric. John Joseph a guy that spent his life ripping people off screams about being ripped off? REALLY?

anonymous 2/15/2017 5:57:33 PM

Totally him. He's so in love with his own jerk he can't deal with people shit talking him on the internet. Just do a search. He probably searches his own name on Google more than his victims do. The guy is a class A bullshit artist. He talks mondo amounts of shit too, and acts like he's an MMA fighter. He's a fcking pssy supreme, and so much so that he can't even deal with internet posts.
