Adam Yauch 'recovering well'

Old skool hip-hop heads everywhere will be strapping on their adidas and wearing big shades (presumably doing that weird arm folding thing that all 80s acts did) to celebrate the news that Beastie Boy Adam Yauch is recovering well from cancer.

Yauch had a tumour removed from his Parotid gland shortly after he was diagnosed with cancer in July, and he says that spending time in India and being treated by Tibetan doctors has aided his recovery.

‘I'm feeling healthy, strong and hopeful that I've beaten this thing, but of course time will tell,’ he said. ‘I'm taking Tibetan medicine and at the recommendation of the Tibetan doctors I've been eating a vegan/organic diet, surprisingly enough [that] was harder to do in India than it is now that I'm back home.’

He even feels well enough to start talking about the release of the Beastie’s next long player Hot Sauce Committe Part 1, which was originally scheduled for release last month.

‘We have not set a new release date for the record yet, but I'm hoping it'll be in the first half of next year.’ Hooray and triple pip pip.
