A laptop, a vinyl record & DJ GRANDMASTER FLASH
GRANDMASTER FLASH & audience
Even Grandmater Flash, the "first dj to play the turntables as a musical instrument", uses a laptop now. That said, he was the only DJ at Webster Hall on Friday night that ALSO had a crate of records with him. He played the usual hip hop favorites and the occasional rock hit by bands like The White Stripes and Nirvana. When not mixing, he could often be found at the front of the stage hyping up the crowd and his long career that includes an induction into into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. More pictures below....
GRANDDAUGHTER FLASH? (this actually happened during MSTRKRFT)

Also, there's a show this Friday May 23rd at Paradise Theater in the Bronx. Grandmaster Flash isn't playing it, but a lot of his friends are:
