Beastie Boys Ad-Rock and Mike D Sign Book Deal

Here’s news of a book we can’t wait to read – the New York Times reports that surviving Beastie Boys Adam (Ad-Rock) Horovitz and Michael (Mike D) Diamond are putting together a memoir about the group’s history. Now, this won’t be an ordinary memoir, as the book, which is due in 2015, will be “loosely structured as an oral history” but will also contain bits that aim to challenge the reader and contributions from other writers according to the report.

Mike D and Ad-Rock recently signed a deal with Spiegel & Grau to put together the book detailing their history, which will be edited by hip-hop writer Sacha Jenkins. The idea for the tome predates the tragic death of Adam “MCA” Yauch, but was put on the back burner when the rapper sadly passed in 2012.
