A long in the works book centered on universally adored band the Beastie Boys finally has a release date, and even better, Beastie Boys Book is now available for pre-order. As you might expect given the subject matter, it’s not a typical rock memoir or autobiography:
“With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside the band narrative you will find rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys’ New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises.”
Surviving Beasties Adam “AD-ROCK” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond offer their memories and insights for Beastie Boys Book, which makes it at the very least a must-read once your local library picks it up. If you’re not patient enough to wait for that, head over to Amazon here to pre-order a copy for fifty bucks on the dot.
