Intrigued by the cookbook. This could be a great book.

Part of me thought it might be a working title to push pre orders in a classic under the deadline beastie kind of way.

Especially with all of the Glen Friedman teases about never-before-seen images, this title and cover reveal seems kind of underwhelming but doesn’t curb my excitement in the least.



Long Burn The Fire. Rest In Peace Adam.

Does this mean there's no Jerry Lewis or other unheard tracks? :/

Ha! I thought it was just me == Amazon telling me it's a best seller in "cooking education and reference" (no comma between cooking and education)

It feels more real seeing something that looks like a book in the amazon photo

The cover pic is a Lynn Goldsmith piece not a GEF although GEF did contribute a lot of his photos......



thank you Adam.

Yeah. I expected to see a GEF cover photo instead of the familiar one from the LG Stromboli Pizza session.

This got me thinking about the really bad and poorly researched book by Frank Owen, called “Beastie Boys Book Deluxe”, in a black, red, and white cover theme with an old photo from the 80’s

https://books.google.com/books/about...ource=kp_cover


This so called insider guy is going to benefit from the official memoir title being so similar. People are going to think they are buying a deluxe version of the official memoir.

That is certainly possible, but you’d like to think that ‘by Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz’ would be a key point of dinstinction.

The title is on the one hand lazy, but also quite funny in a direct sort of way. I was expecting something a little more poetic / smart / apt, but then how do you really sum up the Beastie Boys’ life in a title? And without any input from 1/3 of the group.

Looking forward to visiting my local store on the day of release.
