Beastie Boys will be publishing a memoir in a few years
Gen Xers still thumbing through well-worn copies of Jay-Z's book Decoded should clear off their coffee tables; Beastie Boys members Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz have decided to publish a memoir. We're hoping for lots of stories about the late Adam Yauch.
While the pair themselves didn't comment, their agent Luke Janklow told the New York Times the surviving members decided it needed to be done after Yauch's death from cancer last year. “After Yauch died, I didn’t push them, but I think that Adam and Mike ended up realizing that it was the right time for them," Janklow said.
Publisher Julie Grau says the book won't be the typical, staid memoir, because Mike D and Ad-Rock are “interested in challenging the form and making the book a multidimensional experience." That means it's going to take a lot of editing before it's released in Fall 2015.
