I was truly hurt to the core when I heard the news last night. If it's any
indication of what Run DMC meant to me, my one and only DJ set (ever)
was at our office "birthdays" celebration this year. Since we were only
allotted 20 minutes to play our selections, I had to kick it off with "The
Ave," as I thought this would truly represent my perspective. Out of over
some 1000+ records that I own, when it actually came time for me to step up
to the turntables, I picked Run DMC first.
