Adam Yauch (Beastie Boys): RIP


Go stick your head in a pig
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)
It's a fabulous book! One of the best band biogs I've read.
