Beastie Boy Adam Yauch's Cancer is Getting Better
Contrary to widely distributed reports from early Friday, Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch has not fully recovered from cancer. "While I'm grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated," Yauch said in a statement. "I'm continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future."
When Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys was diagnosed with cancer in his parotid gland 18 months ago, the band canceled its shows and put off a much-anticipated album. All this doom and gloom made fans wonder if they had seen the last of the beloved rap-rock group. Guess again. In an interview with BBC Radio 1 (via WENN.com), bandmate Michael Diamond (Mike D) announced that Yauch (MCA) is on his way to beating the disease, saying, "We're really happy about it."
When Yauch was first diagnosed, the condition was considered "very treatable," and in March the gravelly-voiced rapper said he was on the mend after using a vegan diet and Eastern medicine.
Mike D revealed that while the band's upcoming album 'Hot Sauce Committee, Part 1' is still delayed, new music is on the way real soon, including an epic 'Runaway'-type music video.
