Beasties’ Adam Yauch Beats Cancer

    Here’s some good news to end the week as Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, aka MCA, has been given the “all-clear” in his battle with cancer.


    It was 18 months ago that Yauch announced the sad news that doctors found a tumor in his salivary gland, but now, BBC 1 Radio reports that the 46-year-old is back to full health. His partner-in-crime Mike D broke the news in an interview with the station, saying that the group is “really happy” Yauch’s been cured and that Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is “coming out as originally scheduled” this spring. As for Part 1, though, its release is “still delayed” according to D.  


    While touring plans are still dependent on how healthy Yauch is, Beastie Boys are keeping busy in the meantime by putting the finishing touches on their “Fight for Your Right” short film. [via HuffPo and Toronto Sun]
