Adam Yauch of Beastie Boys has Cancer

Adam Yauch, aka MCA, just recently announced on http://beastieboys.com/, the band's website, that he has cancer in his parotid gland and in a lymph node. In the video he says that it is localized and that since it has not spread throughout the rest of his body/they caught it early, he should recover just fine. Apparently it is very treatable and in most cases they can eliminate it completely. As a result of this medical condition they are canceling some shows, which he apologized for in the video, where he appears beside fellow band mate Adam Horovitz, aka Ad-Rock.

They are very at ease in the video and even crack a few jokes, including Ad-Rock starting a country band in the vein of Kenny Loggins. I have been a die-hard Beastie Boys fan for many years, so I wish Adam Yauch a speedy recovery!

And so it goes...
