*5208 $aNAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Rolling Stone ﾢ The Guardian ﾢ Paste Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom. Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band. Adam ﾜADROCKﾝ Horovitz and Michael ﾜMike Dﾝ Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers; their early collaboration with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; the debut album that became the first hip hop record ever to hit #1, Licensed to Illﾔand the albumﾙs messy fallout as the band broke with Def Jam; their move to Los Angeles and rebirth with the genre-defying masterpiece Paulﾙs Boutique; their evolution as musicians and social activists over the course of the classic albums Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty and the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits conceived by the late Adam ﾜMCAﾝ Yauch; and more. For more than thirty years, this band has had an inescapable and indelible influence on popular culture. With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside the band narrative you will find rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boysﾙ New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises. Praise for Beastie Boys Book ﾜA fascinating, generous book with portraits and detail that float by in bursts of color . . . As with [the bandﾙs] records, the bookﾙs structure is a lyrical three-man weave. . . . Diamondﾙs voice is lapidary, droll. Horovitz comes on like a borscht belt comedian, but beneath that he is urgent, incredulous, kind of vulnerable. . . . Friendship is the bookﾙs subject as much as music, fame and New York.ﾝﾔThe New York Times Book Review
