Beastie Boys Book: Adrock & Mike D To Write “Multidimensional” Band Memoir

Surviving Beastie Boys members Adam Horovitz (“Ad-Rock”) and Michael Diamond (“Mike D”) have signed a deal to write a memoir about their hip-hop trio, which also included Adam Yauch (“MCA”), who died last year after a bout with cancer. Random House imprint Spiegel & Grau, the publishers behind Jay-Z‘s Decoded, took on the still-untitled project, which is set for a fall 2015 release.

According to the publisher, Horovitz and Diamond are “interested in challenging the form and making the book a multidimensional experience.” So what exactly does that mean? Well, the book “will be loosely structured as an oral history. It will also have contributions by other writers, as well as a strong visual component.”

The legendary New York City hip-hop group had considered writing a biography a few years ago, according to their agent, but plans were sidelined when Yauch was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. This isn’t the Boys’ first foray into the publishing world: they founded and published Grand Royal magazine in 1993, which ran until 1997.
