Editorial Reviews

Tracing the arc of the Beastie Boys' career from three kids screwing around with samples and a microphone, to worldwide fame and credibility as one of the greatest bands of alternative rock, Alan Cross is at his best with this audiobook, Beastie Boys. From "Brass Monkey" to "Sabotage" and beyond, Canadian broadcast journalist Cross tells the story of the band that fused rock and rap with his usual wry wit and matter-of-fact storytelling. Born out of the hip-hop movement in New York in the 1980s, the Beastie Boys went on to run a record company, produce and direct films, record and perform solo work, and continue to sell records. A fitting tribute so soon after MCA's (Adam Yauch) death.
