Adam Yauch from The Beastie Boys has been diagnosed with cancer. in his left parotid (salivary) gland. The tumor was detected early and localized in a single area, so hopes are high for effective treatment. The tumor is not located where it might affect Yauch’s vocal chords. Here’s the video from him on the Beastie’s website.
Here’s a couple songs to harken back to that original Beastie Boy sound:
Egg Man – Beastie Boys
Hey Ladies – Beastie Boys
