We were extremely upset to hear last year that Beastie Boys rapper Adam "MCA" Yauch was diagnosed with a salivary gland tumor, but we're thrilled to report now that he is on his way to making a full recovery!!
And the band is ready to get working again on their new album, Hot Sauce Committee, Part 1, which was postponed indefinitely after Yauch's diagnosis!!
“I feel better. It was touch and go there for a while, but I am finally getting my energy back. It was really disappointing to have to hold the record and postpone the tour, but doctor’s orders. We may or may not [release the album] depending on how my health is come September. We want to but we have to play it by ear. I was just talking to Adam [Horovitz] and Mike [D] today on the phone and we were talking about working on it a bit. We finished the record over a year ago, so we want to take a look at it and re-evaluate and make sure it is what we want to put out there and that we are still happy with it. I don’t think we will change it up too much.”
We're relieved you're feeling better, bb, and anxiously awaiting your new album!!
