    Man, that sucks. Manny blessing for him and his family. I’m glad to hear its treatable. We look forward to seeing them on stage again. :~)

    It’s a letter for you, we couldn’t manage to send it to you any other way, but the LP forum.
    To summarize it, it is about our band Piknik Park, Europe’s one and only Linkin Park Cover Band.

    Wow. That’s so sad! I’m glad it’s treatable though. Hope he gets better soon! I’m not a big Beastie Boys fan but I admit they’re all very talented.

    Oh yeah, I don’t know why but I can’t comment your new post about your art, so I’ll just write here that your paiting is so creative and interesting. I’ve never thought about that and it makes so much sense! Ha!

    Having fun on your new tour? Hope you are. Still waiting you guys in Brazil. Oh yeah, check this out: http://rockstarme.deviantart.com/journal/26078789/ it’s from my friend Jade and it would mean a lot to her if you read it.

    Take care man!

    Hey Mike. There’s something important I’d like you to read when you have time. I don’t need a reply unless you want to give one. I just want you to see it. Thanks. http://rockstarme.deviantart.com/journal/26078789/ EDIT :: PS, all my friends are probably going to tell you to look at it, lmfao.

    I’m definitely glad he decided to go see his doctor.

  10. Sintia on July 21, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    I think I heard about that yesterday but I just ignored it because I thought it was just one of those rumors. Thanks for posting this for verification. Its really sad to see one of the greatest music artist get cancer but good that they caught it early enuff for them to surgerically remove & treat it. My prays go out to him, rest of Beastie Boys, & their families.
    I hope you, LP, and also your families are doing good and are in good health. Enjoy the Tour and try not to break any bones or put anymore holes on your faces. LOL

    Oh my God…I hope he gets better.
    I’m glad it’s treatable.
    Get better soon MCA!!!!
    Beastie Boys are amazing…

    MCA, get well soon! Don’t worry about the album and the tour. The fans can wait for the album. You should take care of your health.

  13. murry on July 21, 2009 at 9:12 am

    I saw this yesterday. Very sad. They say it’s treatable, so hopefully he’ll beat it.

  14. cuz on July 21, 2009 at 7:30 am

    Get well soon!

  15. bryan2426 on July 21, 2009 at 4:15 am

  20. luckyluck on July 21, 2009 at 12:09 am

  21. ThePrincess on July 20, 2009 at 11:53 pm

    I’ve always loved those Beasties guys , Hopefully he will pull through !!

  22. Dori on July 20, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    wow… thanks for posting this, Mike… I saw something on the ticker on a news station, b..ut didn’t read the whole thing, so I had no idea this was a Beastie Boys thing. I have’nt picked up my tickets for the show September 13th in Santa Barbara, but will definitely keep track of this story….

  23. miKer0cks on July 20, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    Wow! Thx for sharing Mike. Thank god he’s gonna be fine in the end😉

    About 8 hours left till I see you guys tonight!😀 Yay!!!! Can’t wait! I hope you’ll play a place for my head or maybe with you! It’d be so awesome!😀

  24. soyuneik on July 20, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Ugh, I’m real sorry to hear that, MCA. I personally know a few people who successfully had it removed and are living healthy normal lives. I didn’t know you guys knew each other. Should I assume stuff like this? Is it weird that I don’t?
    Ya know, I didn’t post anything about Mj either. I silently paid my respects to a great musician and left it at that. But I did take note of all the fake-ass opportunist scumbag fucks that so selfishly used his death to make a buck. My bad…it appears my tongue clamp fell off. Sigh.

  25. bangbangbangonddoorbaby on July 20, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    i think that was their stab at the lack of posting when MJ died.

  26. MCA on July 20, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    thanks for posting this.

  27. LcatP on July 20, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    Dang, I would have never known. Well I’m glad he’s going to be okay and that’s what matters! Thanks for sharing Mike. Take Care!

    PS JuliettaShinoda .. is a little off haha

  28. analoggirl on July 20, 2009 at 5:17 pm

    Much respect for posting that announcement. When I saw “Adam Yauch” and “MCA” as trending topics on Twitter, I knew it wasn’t good.

    I love the Beastie Boys. I honestly believe the best thing that ever happened to me, musically, was when our family friends taped over our copy of Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet with the Beastie Boys’ Licence to Ill. That was my first foray into hip hop and I’ve never looked back. Over 20 years later, I’m still listening to the Beasties, thanks to their new track with Nas.

    Hopefully the surgery goes well and Adam/MCA will be back on his feet in no time. ❤

  29. LAX on July 20, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    Damn that’s some bad news, hopefully he comes out of this ordeal alright. On a side note, what the hell is that “juliettashinoda” b**** talking about? You got some crazy ass fans dude…

  30. xXLEOXx on July 20, 2009 at 3:26 pm

    Wow… I´m pretty shocked now! I hope you get well soon, Adam! ♥
    Thanks for showing Mike!

  31. Lvix on July 20, 2009 at 3:25 pm

    Damn, thats fucked up. So respect for those artists they tell to the fans what problems there are…
    Never heard about them before, beatie boys… I think i should listen more music then only Linkin Park.

    Greetz,

  32. freak_yellow on July 20, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    wow does that means there will not be at osheaga in montreal this summer ? thats lame, but he got some good reasons😛

  33. Mag_Shinizzle on July 20, 2009 at 2:26 pm
