Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch Is Cancer-Free

Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch has been given the all-clear in his cancer battle, 18 months after he was diagnosed with the disease.

Yauch, aka MCA, put his career on hold after doctors found a tumor in his parotid gland in July 2009, and as a result, the band’s album “Hot Sauce Committee, Part 1″ was delayed indefinitely.

Yauch proved he was on the road to recovery months after having the lump removed when he declared he was “feeling healthy, strong and hopeful,” having adopted a strict vegan diet and turned to ancient Chinese medicine upon the advice of Tibetan doctors.

His bandmate Mike D says that the trio’s plans to release the second part of “Hot Sauce Committee” this spring are back on track now that Yauch has overcome his illness.

In an interview on BBC Radio 1, Mike D says Yauch’s recovery news is “a good thing,” adding, “We’re really happy about it.”

And while the Beastie Boys’ previously announced project “Hot Sauce Committee, Part 1″ is still delayed, Mike D says fans will be treated to some new music very soon.

He says, “The second one is coming out as originally scheduled.”

The rapper says the Beastie Boys are open to touring to promote the upcoming release, but he admitted it will all depend on how 46-year-old Yauch’s health holds up.

Mike D continues, “We’re still going to have to see how he’s doing.”
