About this deal

Having an all star ensemble to read various chapters was cool but I enjoyed the parts read by Ad-Roc and Mike D the best, so I think they could have done the whole thing themselves and actually enhanced the experience.

Or the story of when Yauch purchased the phone number of a defunct company mentioned on their album Paul’s Boutique — he hooked it up to an answer machine to see what happened. The stories are mostly hilarious or weird or weird and hilarious, like, Yauch and Mike D had an apartment with an asphalt floor! Reilley, Nas, Snoop, Rosie Perez, Wes Anderson and a bunch of other people, some of whom I knew and some I didn't. It shouldn't come as a surprise to any fans that Beastie Boys have delivered an innovative, open, funny memoir, full of geeky detail to delight in. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys, a book as unique as the band itself—by band members ADROCK and Mike D, with contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante, and more.Chapters include making a mix tape, many chapters are just song lists, stories are hyped up and seem to have no punch line. You need to see the photos and hear the stories read both by Mike D and Ad-Rock as well as by a cast of unexpected others (Bette Midler.

These little creative avenues rest alongside more heavy-duty descriptions of how particular songs were created, tours unfolded, label interactions played out and video production techniques. star listen and I would recommend this to anyone who's a fan of the Beasties (obvs) but anyone who's a fan of music as this is an insightful account of the genesis of hip hop and rap music.

Secondly, Beastie Boys have been my favorite band since I was five or six years old, and Ill Communication was the third CD I owned as a kid. The variation in content goes further: there are even several pages of recipes and a short graphic story.
