RUN AND D.M.C. TO PLAY ROOTS PICNIC?
Last year at The Roots picnic, the group headlined their festival but also served as Public Enemy's backing band for a complete performance of It Takes A Nation To Hold Us Back. ?uestlove just posted a video annoucning the lineup (nothing too great, it features The Clipse and Vampire Weekend) but says that there will be a reunion that no one ever expected. He then puts on a black hat and gold chain and folds his arms. I'm guessing - and I'm sure so is everyone else - Run-D.M.C. Or, more accurately, Run and D.M.C. It's not Run-D.M.C. as long as Jam Master Jay is no longer with us. Still that is a pretty cool deal. After Run and D.M.C. didn't perform at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year, I didn't think they'd ever perform together again. So thank you to The Roots! Maybe next year they can get Eric B. & Rakim back together!
