Default Beastie Boys Sign Memoir Deal

Well once again Hood had the info early on. It's now announced in New York Times.

The book, to be edited by the hip-hop journalist Sacha Jenkins, will be loosely structured as an oral history. It will also have contributions by other writers, as well as a strong visual component. Ms. Grau and Luke Janklow, the group’s agent, both compared it to Grand Royal, the Beastie Boys’ acclaimed but short-lived magazine in the 1990s, which explored some of its wide-ranging pop-culture interests with curiosity and snark. “The first words out of Mike’s mouth were, ‘I don’t want to do a straight memoir,’ ” said Mr. Janklow, of the firm Janklow & Nesbit.


Mr. Janklow said he had been in discussions with the group several years ago about the possibility of a book, but they were set aside as the third Beastie Boy, Adam Yauch, known as MCA, began to suffer from cancer of the salivary gland; he died last year at 47.
“After Yauch died, I didn’t push them,” Mr. Janklow said, “but I think that



Adam and Mike ended up realizing that it was the right time for them.” A spokesman for the Beastie Boys did not respond to a request for comment.

The article describes it as a multidimensional, transmedia-like project. Would be amazing if that meant some new or unreleased music.
