Beastie Boys - Beastie Boys: 'No Tour Plans Until Mca Is Cancer-free'

Beastie Boys star Adam Horovitz has ruled out any tour plans to promote their new album until rapper Adam Yauch has fully recovered from cancer.
Yauch, aka Mca, has been undergoing treatment since July 2009, when doctors found a tumour in his parotid gland.
He has also adopted a strict vegan diet and turned to ancient Chinese medicine to help him beat the disease, and although his prognosis is good, Horovitz admits the band is putting off any live dates following the release of Hot Sauce Committee Part Two until Yauch's back to full health.
Horovitz says, "He's doing OK. He's still in treatment, so it's not 100 per cent (clear). But things are looking good.
"We're not touring, we're just getting the record out - and we're not making any plans until he is better. Which is definitely going to happen."
But Horovitz is confident Yauch will be joining the group to make a full comeback soon - and he's sure they will bounce back harder than ever before when the time comes to record their next project.
He adds, "I have a feeling the next record is going to be the most insane party record you ever heard. Because if you go through something like what Yauch's going through, I mean, s**t. After that, you must feel pretty good."
Horovitz's comments come four months after bandmate Mike D claimed Yauch had been given the all-clear, prompting the sick star to clarify the remarks and reveal his treatment is ongoing.

Well it sure is a small world. My Cousin owned the brownstone on W.11th street where your father lived. I also have several tumors on my Parotid glands and waiting on second biopsy which was now sent to John Hopkins. Wish You well. I get google alerts for both the group and parotid tumors.
