Getting better all the time

Great news for all Beastie Boys fans: Adam Yauch’s recovery from cancer is continuing to go well, and he is feeling well enough to resume work on the groups’ delayed album, Hot Sauce Committe Part 1. The rapper was diagnosed with a cancerous parotid gland back in July of last year, but surgery and the subsequent radiation therapy have kept the cancer at bay.

The group also had to postpone a tour due to Yauch’s illness, but as yet they haven’t made a decision about whether or when they will be hitting the road to promote the record.

‘I feel better,’ the rapper said. ‘It was touch and go there for a while, but I am finally getting my energy back.

‘I was just talking to Adam and Mike today on the phone and we were talking about working on it a bit. We finished the record over a year ago, so we want to take a look at it and re-evaluate and make sure it is what we want to put out there and that we are still happy with it.
