DAY 143 GRAMMY CHASE: WHO’S HOUSE

Posting this, JUST because I can! I’m forever a RUN-DMC fan, period. They are my heros and there hasn’t been group with the likes of these brothers since. Not even the Wu-Tang with triple the number of members could give me the feeling that RUN-DMC and Jam Master Jay gave. I remember when I was about 14, my cousin Anthony borrowed his Mother’s Porshe 944, as he was supposed to get it washed, but we ended up driving up and down Bailey and around Delavan pumping the Tougher than Leather Album, with one of my favorites being “Run’s House.” Many years later, as a majority of people are aware of, Run’s House became the name of his reality show. To my knowledge, Run-DMC was nominated for a Grammy, but never a winner, but they are still the undisputed KINGS OF ROCK!!

Also, an extra special SALUTE to the Kings for bringing Hip Hop to the stage front and CENTER in the world of music. This performance was at the Grammy’s, and look how square and appalled the audience is. It’s hard to rock a show when the people aren’t giving you energy, but today, EVERYONE stands on their feet for the Hip Hop performances at the Grammy’s and thats partly in thanks to the Kings for paying the cost!!
