Bad Brains - Bad Brains Dedicate New Album To Yauch
Punk icons Bad Brains are dedicating their new album to late Beastie Boys star Adam Yauch.
The rapper produced the band's last album, Build a Nation, and frontman H.R. and his bandmates wanted to pay a special tribute to Yauch while recording Into the Future.
Bassist Darryl Jenifer tells Rolling Stone, "He was a good friend and fan of the band, always was our number one supporter out of celebrities or whatever. We knew each other from way back. We were in bands together. I played in his band Brooklyn. He's still doing his thing, spiritually."
H.R. admits Yauch's death in May (12) re-inspired him to make the best album possible: "I wanted to put something on paper, on track, that he would enjoy."
