How exciting for Beastie Boys fans!!
While surviving members Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz have been talking about putting out a book for a long time, it's now been officially announced!
The memoir is, very fittingly, called "Beastie Boys Book" and is set for release on October 30th!
Take a look at the book's cover:
The book is being described as “a panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys."
Further they say: The 592-page memoir features “rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys’ New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises.” Additional contributions were written by the likes of Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson and Luc Sante.
This really sounds like the ultimate gift for any Beastie fan, right??
