Beastie Boy Adam Yauch has an Ill Communication
Sad, sad “heavy” news. This morning, via beastieboys.com, MCA [a.k.a. Adam Yauch] made the announcement that he has been diagnosed with cancer in his salivary gland. Fighting back nervous laughter, the band released a statement on YouTube, with Yauch explaining the “pain in the ass” of why their tour will be cancelled and their record release will be pushed back. This form of cancer is treatable with surgery and radiation, so says MCA himself, and there is no threat of any damage to his voice which he remarks is, “Nice… and convenient.” Yauch even goes on further to apologize to the fans for the inconvenience of him having cancer and if anyone’s schedules are going to get messed up. The audacity of these punks!
I don’t think it’s too much to assume their recent addition to Street Scene will be rescinded, but on behalf of everyone: Getter better soon, man, and we’ll catch you on the next one!
