Adam Yauch

With the recent tragedy that has seemed to plague the entertainment industry this year, this was the last thing we were expecting. Adam Yauch otherwise known as MCA of the The Beastie Boys, released a video this past Tuesday, July 20th along with band member Adam Horowitz (Ad-Rock) on his recent tumor diagnosis found on his left parotid (salivary) gland.

Spotted two months ago, the tumor is fortunately in its early stages and has been localized in one area, but will require surgery and additional time to recooperate before finalizing a schedule and tour dates for their new upcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Pt. I.
