I also found out when I got there, that DMC would be signing extras. Thankfully, the store had a used copy of Krush Groove for only 5 bucks, which was a lifesaver because I've been wanting to get my hands on the dvd for some time. He was more than happy to see Krush Groove and even gushed about it. He even put "It's Tricky" and "Krush Groove" inscriptions.
Of course, I've always been a huge RUN-DMC fan, but the big reason I wanted to meet DMC wasn't due to his music. In 2006 VH1 ran a special about DMC finding his real mother. As someone who is adopted, I was inspired to get in contact with my biological family, which I did less than a year later. He was very appreciative and happy when I told him this, to the point that he told me "An adopted celebrity one time told me, you don't start a book on chapter 2, you gotta start from the beginning. Good or bad." He gave me a hug, and we got our photo op to which I requested us folding our arms, to resemble an old school rap album. He laughed and said "My man wants a b-boy stance, you give it to him!". The photo turned out great and I couldn't be happier.
Definitely a huge highlight of my year, I can't say enough nice things about him. If you guys ever get the chance to meet DMC, fan of his music or not, I highly suggest it. He's lead a fascinating life and absolutely a real fun guy to chat with!
