Yesterday, Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys did something that I consider to be bold and courageous. Something you would really not expect from the likes of such an artist. Something that will garner respect and appreciation from his fans. He announced to the world, via Youtube, that he had (treatable) cancer to jutify the post-poned tour dates:
Why would he come clean like that? The announcement is very natural, even got me thinking I knew him a little. I’m not a huge fan of the Beatie Boys but that got me connected. Such and honest way of updating the people who truly ‘want to know’ is a sign of respect. He is respecting his fanbase in an extremely delicate way, and just for that, I’m going to check out his tunes today.
Woof to Adam
