Beastie Boys member diagnosed with cancer

Adam Yauch (aka MCA) of The Beastie Boys has been diagnosed with cancer of the preaortic gland and lymph node. In a video released to fans explaining the news and subsequent cancellations of live appearances, Youch said the condition was ‘treatable’ and was localised in one area of his neck.

The video explained that the band’s forthcoming album ‘Hot Sauce Committee’, penned for a September 15th release would be postponed as well as all forthcoming live dates.

Yauch, accompanied in the video by band mate Adam Horowitz (aka Ad-Rock) said he only found out the news when asked by Youch to come and film the video with him.

Yauch plans to begin surgery soon and apologised to fans that had “made plans or was super-psyched to come to these shows…”
