    I managed to do a crowdsurf where I was rolled right along the front row and waved at Ad-Rock, who had his foot up on a monitor at the front, and he waved back :cool:

    Really respect them for this - they started doing this as kids and were about as good as any other bunch of young teens (maybe a bit better tbf)-

    their live shows in the 80s/early 90s were good, but nothing special,

    but they seemd to work harder and harder every year that goes by, so that by 99 they could pull off a show like that. They could all easily have retired and burned out after Pauls Boutique... inspiring i think.

    Pretty sure I was there too , supporting Run DMC if I remember ? All sorts of media hype before hand trying to suggest that there was going to be a lot of tension between the black and white rappers and punters , turned out to be bollocks , it was also my first rap gig . Absolutely fucking love Licenced , played it to a scratched mess .

    cancer is a terrible thing . RIP

    Yeah that was the one, the whole tour was hyped up by the tabloids with stories of abuse of the disabled and riots. I just remember the gig being loads of fun, with a huge cock appearing from a box onstage which was then liberally showered with beer cans :D

    For any fans The Beastie Boys Book is essential.
    Its written by mostly Adam Horowitz with a lot by Mike Diamond and a few other contributors.
    Its mostly writing but has shitloads of brilliant photos, diagrams, a recipe, newspaper articles, bad reviews, a comic etc etc
    It really is a masterpiece and should be the template all music autobiographies should work to imho.
    Because of the style of it they can have little side pieces; the tour bus, the art of the mixtape, the odd percussionist they had on one tour etc
    Its expensive but hefty (not one you can read on the commute)
