AEROSMITH have issued a statement expressing their sorrow over the death Wednesday (Oct. 30) of RUN-D.M.C.'s DJ Jam Master Jay. It is as follows:"We were greatly shocked and saddened by the news of the untimely death of Jam Master Jay. When we were down and out and in the depths, Jay and RUN-D.M.C. came along and said, 'Come play on our record.' RUN-D.M.C. and Jam Master Jay's gift to the world was a new kind of music for a whole new generation, and their gift to us was a piece of ourselves back. Jay was scratching before anyone had the itch and still at the top of his game when we played with him this summer. We will hear him every night when we play 'Walk This Way'."
