Boo! Run-DMC Won't Perform Tomorrow Night


So ... it looks like Run-DMC won't be performing at tomorrow night's Rock Hall festivities after all, reports MTV News.

DMC says he and Run don't want to perform without Jam Master Jay, their DJ who was killed in 2002. "For me, I tell people, 'Do you want to see me and Run running around without Jay?'" DMC told MTV News. "They tell me I could get Grandmaster Flash. But I can get any DJ in the world if I want. It wouldn't be right. I can't replace my drummer."

I suppose this isn't too big of a surprise. Still, it's a little disappointing for those of us who were expecting the duo to trade some verses with presenter Eminem. A video tribute to Run-DMC will play instead of a live performance. —Michael Gallucci
