You'll never mistake Joseph Simmons for Ozzy Osbourne. The collar alone pretty much assures that. Sitting in a small side room at Cine-Space in Hollywood, he sports the white band of a man or woman of the cloth -- Simmons is an ordained Pentecostal minister. But Simmons, his wife and five children (ages 8 to 21) are going to be featured in an MTV reality series starting in September, taking the slot in recent years occupied by Ozzy's foul-mouthed clan on "The Osbournes."

A Run-DMC album without DMC? Well, that's just about what you get with this much-delayed album, which comes out Tuesday. Although Run (Joseph Simmons) was viewed as the front man of the groundbreaking Queens, N.Y., trio, DMC (Darryl McDaniels) was a rock-solid second fiddle, with his muscular vocals bringing authority and confidence to the group's music.

Rick Rubin is sitting in a restaurant on Bleecker Street in the Village. He's got the soft, round look of someone who l-o-v-e-s food. But Rubin hasn't even touched the mound of chicken wings and French fries in front of him. He's too busy talking about his favorite scene from "Sudden Impact," one of Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry adventures. " . . . You know the one where Eastwood walks into a coffee shop and there are five guys with rifles and pistols," he says.

When Joseph Simmons--better known as Run of the pivotal rap group Run-DMC--tells you he's a pioneer, he's not making an idle boast. Back in 1986, Run-DMC scored a No. 4 pop single with a remake of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way," becoming the first rap act to reach such a position on the national sales chart, with the first record to bring rock 'n' roll to a hip-hop audience.
