Beastie Boys Memoir in the WorksThe Beastie Boys have left their imprint on music, having been an integral part in the development
The Beastie Boys have left their imprint on music, having been an integral part in the development of hip-hop since the group’s foundation in 1981. With the untimely passing of Adam “MCA” Yauch, the group collapsed talks of creating a retrospective memoir, which was already in the works. Presently though, the surviving members of the group, Michael Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock), have signed a contract under Random House to produce a ‘non-traditional’ memoir. The book is set to be edited by famed music journalist Sacha Jenkins, and will be released under the same imprint that released Jay-Z’s “Decoded.” Look for more details on the book to come as it nears a slated 2015 release.
