This is awesome, and it makes me so happy that Mike must be doing better and feeling comfortable performing those songs again. I have to wonder if he asked Adam to join him.....



Keep it on

I know they wouldn't, but purely wishful thinking the two of them could just do something without structure, each doing MCA verses only over whatever beats they felt like.

For like, 5 minutes.

And it would be amazing.

Not like a big planned thing.

I was there with Jennyb, right on the rail. It was fun. Very relaxed, this is what I posted on facebook to my friends, Ill just copy it here.

It was a fun set. I had zero expectations on what to expect, I thought maybe he was just going to be playing random songs off his macbook and thats it. Little did I know they were taping a setlist down to the stage, and he would start the set by playing So Whatcha Want and then rapping his own parts. He did this with other Beastie Boys songs like Get It Together, Sabotage, Intergalactic, Its The New Style, he also played a couple bits and pieces of other songs like No Sleep Til Brooklyn, the drum intro of Shake your Rump. He did more of a history of hip hop type set, and spoke about music that influenced him, and played hip hop tracks from NYC, Atlanta, LA, Chicago.... stuff like Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Big Pun, T La Rock, Outkast, Jay Z, Missy Elliot, DMX, Run DMC, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg... it was very chill, and he had a backing DJ that would play these tracks and Mike would speak over it, dance on stage, go behind the decks and lower the volume to sing himself....it was very beastie like, in the sense of, not much practice was put in, but he had fun.


He also came out earlier in the day, on the same stage, to perform his guest vocal spot with Slaves on their song Consume or be Consumed. I had just walked in to the festival and noticed 'oh isnt that the band that Mike D sings with...' and as I get closer to the stage I see Mike D is already on stage with them and they are about to start the song. I ran up and started filmed and freaking out, so its a bit of a blur. lol

Ive no idea why mike d has done this.

If he performed beastie boys songs where he was just the singer/rapper like mullet head then fair enough.

Yeah it is weird. I don't see this as him 'performing' as the Beastie Boys, this is just Mike D having fun with his legacy. I mean it does highlight what has been lost, but he's clearly healing and that's a beautiful thing. Just my opinion.

I knew I should have gone to this! Thanks for posting the video. And for the nice review Paul!

Looks like Mike was having fun. That's all that matters. I'm sure it felt good to be a Beastie Boy again. I wonder if he ever looked around for the other guys for a split second. Flashback.



Thank You Adam Yauch

Awesome.



"A lot of record companies look at the numbers and they'll be like, 'Your first record sold 5 million and your second record sold only 800,000. What happened? You guys fell off, I think the band all feels that the record did really well. Most musicians I grew up playing music with would probably shoot me if I ever complained about selling 800,000 records."

They won't perform alive again. I wished Mike would prefer a lot more and I wish that Adam would prefer a lot more

i dont see any problem with this. how could one expect him to completely turn his back on his life's work as a performer? avoiding his catalog of hits would only serve as further acknowledgment of the tragedy anyhow. Yauch may have left us, but life goes on, and the remaining bboys and their work are still with us and still worth celebrating.



it's just 2 wheels and me, the wind in eyes...

You are absolutely right McDuff. It is up to them to do whatever they want, whether that is doing their Beastie music or not. It would be like telling the Doors guys that are still living that they should never do a Doors song again. Sure it is different and seems kind of weird when compared to the complete group, but who else is going to play those songs as well as the guys that did them originally? They made their music and they love it. We are fans, but nobody loves the music more than the people that made it themselves. Why would they deny themselves that? That would be crazy to me.

I can still see the rest of the group getting together at some point and doing a tour to play the music. It will be different but it will still be cool for all the musicians involved as well as the fans. It might still be a while before it happens, but I can see it happening at some point. Who knows, maybe it won't happen, but I'm just saying, I won't be surprised if it does.
