For more info – Run DMC were one of the true pioneers of rap music. Formed in the early eighties they had a string of hit singles and multi-platinum albums through the decade which helped to define the sound of contemporary rap music. They also pioneered the crossover with rock and pop typified by their worldwide hit “Walk This Way”, which they recorded with Aerosmith. This concert at Montreux in 2001 was one of the last they performed before the tragic death of Jam Master Jay in 2002. This track is one of the all-time hip hop classics, and is available on DVD as part of the full concert. “Live at Montreux 2001” is out now on Eagle Vision.
