View Full Version : Beastie Boys All Shows canceled/mca has cancer

Adam "MCA" Yauch of Beastie Boys was diagnosed last week as having a cancerous tumor in his left parotid (salivary) gland. Luckily it was caught early and is localized in one area, and as such is considered very treatable. It will however require surgery and several weeks of additional treatment. Fortunately the cancer is not in a location that will affect Yauch's vocal chords.

Beastie Boys have canceled all upcoming concert appearances to allow time for Yauch's surgery and recovery. The release of the band's forthcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 will also be pushed back.

Paraphrasing from a video statement on Beastieboys.com [below], Yauch said, "I just need to take a little time to get this in check, and then we'll release the record and play some shows. It's a pain in the neck (sorry had to say it) because i was really looking forward to playing these shows, but the doctors have made it clear that this is not the kind of thing that can be put aside to deal with later."

Poor Paul.

I text messaged Paul to see if he knew about it. His response was "You are too funny." And I said "I'm serious." Then he said "Please tell me you are joking. I'm at work and can't look into this." So I told him I'm not and he was pretty bummed.

But it sucks for Adam Yauch more.

Well the good news for Adam is that 80% of parotid tumors are benign with little to no likelihood of spreading beyond the parotid gland. If caught early, surgical reseciton is generally curative and there is no need to chemo or radiation. Hope his falls in that category.

Yeah I mean it sucks some guy isnt going to see his favorite group and have a journey across North Amercia but come on yall. The dude has cancer. That's a little more pressing issue than Paul's 2009 Self Beastie Boys Tour.

I found out about this just after Paul found out, he texted me about it.
