Book Description 'Tougher Than Leather' tells the inside story of Run-DMC's astonishing rise to fame from the obscurity of Hollis. Queens to the kleig-lit heights of pop music fame.

And now it can inspire you. 'Tougher Than Leather' was originally published in 1987 and is reissued here in a new edition, a must have for any serious music fan and authored by Run DMC publicist Bill Adler.Although the individual members of Run-DMC and their manager Russell Simmons have all published books about their lives in recent years, there is only book devoted solely to the career of Run-DMC. Tougher Than Leather tells the inside story of Run-DMC's astonishing rise from the obscurity of Hollis, Queens to the heights of pop music fame.When the trio first teamed up in the spring of 1983, rap music was scarcely more than a weird little blip on the pop culture radar screen. Three-and-a-half years later -- thanks largely to the blazing nonstop success of Run-DMC -- rap music and hiphop culture were everywhere: on arena tours from coast to coast in America. In England, Europe, and Japan. On radio and MTV. On the cover of Rolling Stone. And in the movies. Nothing slowed them down, not the refusal of radio to play their records, the outbursts of violence at their concerts, or the condemnation of their music by the Parents Music Resource Center.Hailed as "the Beatles of rap," Run-DMC paved the way for the Def Jam label and toured with such future stars as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, and Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince.

Ok read! Wish the book was more detailed on their rise to fame. It was almost like a skim through of their success. Book just mentioned they were the first million selling rap group. But never mentioned what each album did as far as record sells. Their mindsets of each album was rarely mentioned. Runs suicide thoughts, DMC alcohol problems, Jay's street moves. What was their relationship like with each other was never really mentioned.

I grew up listening to and still listen Run DMC. The are one of my favorites of all time. I wish concerts were still the same as they were back then. Fresh Fest was da Bomb!!!

This book was written by a rap insider while Run-DMC was still hot. There's an immediacy to it that's very compelling.

This originally came out in the late 80s and could be looked upon as a typical fan bio for younger readers, but it's a tad more than that. It's a pretty good documentation of the early days of rap and Run-DMC's often overlooked role in literally bringing rap back from the dead, gaining fame as they did during an early low point in the genre in 1983. For those of us who were around during that period, this book will bring back good memories. For others, it's a good education.

I bought this book when I was in college and it soon went out of print.Thankfully it has returned.Despite a few mistakes in song lyrics, this book faithfully follows our leather clad heroes from childhood to stardom to superstardom.The story ends however at the release of the disasterous yet still somewhat entertaining film "Tougher than Leather".So kick up your shell-toe (no laces,please) adidas and enjoy a long overdue piece of rock and roll history.

I was a highschooler when Run-DMC made their first hits. Now I'm 35 years old and their music seems fresher than ever. But I never knew too much about Run, DMC, and Jam Master Jay as people until I read this book. Now I see that they were just as serious and interesting behind the scenes as they were on records and onstage. And I also learned a lot about the early career of Russell Simmons and the founding of the Def Jam label with LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys. Some day people will study Run-DMC the way that the baby boomers study the Beatles. Until then, this is the book to read.
