Beastie Boys Memoir..Kind Of.

Now this will certainly be a must get. 

"The first words out of Mike's mouth were... 'I don't want to do a straight memoir'", he noted that the band had discussed the idea of a book several years ago before co-founder Adam Yauch was diagnosed with cancer that later took his life. 

It took until now but the remaining two members Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz have signed a deal with Random House for an untitled memoir... sort of. The book will commemorate their music and career but it won't be a straightforward narrative style remembrance  Instead, they plan to create a loosely structured oral history featuring a mix of their voices, outside contributors and images. 

Whatever these two decide to do I will certainly be interested in owning it.
