AEROSMITH, BUCKCHERRY Members To Back Rapper DMC At LIVE 8 Concert

According to CTV.ca, AEROSMITH drummer Joey Kramer and bassist Tom Hamilton, along with BUCKCHERRY frontman Josh Todd, are among the artists that will be joining DMC (part of the iconic rap group RUN-DMC) on stage at Live 8 Canada on Saturday.

A veteran of Live Aid, the rapper said he is pleased he can add his voice to the fight to stamp out poverty in Africa. "I was happy to support Bob Geldof at the original Live Aid in 1985 with RUN-DMC and it's really amazing to have the opportunity to make another contribution nearly 20 years later for such a worthy cause," he said in a release.

The show takes place July 2 in Barrie, Ont., joining concerts in London, Moscow, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Tokyo, Philadelphia and Johannesburg.
