Beastie Boys stars Michael ’Mike D’ Diamond and Adam ’Ad-Rock’ Horovitz have delayed the release of their book about the hip-hop band because…they’re having too much fun writing it!
In 2013 , the two rappers announced they had inked a deal for their joint memoir about the group’s history following the death of third member Adam ’MCA’ Yauch the previous year (Yauch died at age 47 after a battle with salivary gland cancer).
The remaining band members had originally planned a 2015 release date but Horovitz now says that the memoir will not be out this year because it’s taking the pair too long to complete.
He says, “We’ve got pages!… How it’s going to fit together, I don’t know, but we’ve got some ideas. It’s interesting. It’s fun.”
On a different note, Radio.com is known for their ‘Minimation’ – an animated take on some of the most famous musical interviews.
Check out the ‘Minimation’ take on the Beastie Boys interview where the band gets into a debate about the ‘best Fleetwood Mac album’.
Ahhh…. a classic!
