Adam Yauch, AKAMCA from the Beastie Boys, announced today that he has cancer in a node in his throat. It’s not gonna affect his voice, and it’s probably not gonna kill him, but it does mean they have to cancel their upcoming gigs and push back the release date of Hot Sauce Committee. Which sucks a lot. We at BPM, of course, wish a speedy recovery to the Beasties. Most of us were looking forward to seeing them at Lollapalooza next month, but hey, cancer.
