Beastly good news

Now, here's some good news. In 2009 music fans were saddened to hear that Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, aka 'MCA', was suffering from cancer. Not only was it worrying for fans, but it meant their album 'Hot Sauce Committee II' was delayed and a tour cancelled.

Well, yay! Yauch recently got the all-clear after cancer treatment, bandmate Mike D has revealed. He's doing fine, and Hot Sauce Committee is back on the release schedule for later this spring.

What about that tour? Well, it's hopeful, but don't start speed-dialling Ticketmaster yet. Mike D said the band is 'open' to touring the new album, but added that it'd depend on Yauch's continuing recovery.

Cross your fingers, beastie-lovers!
