beastie@ZackTeibloom Terrible news from the Beastie Boys camp today, as Adam Youch announced via YouTube that he has cancer in his throat. The Beastie’s are forced to push back their album release and have to cancel all upcoming gigs including Lollapalooza and ACL. This begs the question, who will take over their headlining spots?

From their publicist: “Adam “MCA” Yauch of Beastie Boys was diagnosed last week as having a cancerous tumor in his left parotid (salivary) gland. Luckily it was caught early and is localized in one area, and as such is considered very treatable. It will however require surgery and several weeks of additional treatment. Fortunately the cancer is not in a location that will affect Yauch’s vocal chords.”

Most importantly, get well soon, Adam. We love you and hope you recover quickly. For Festival Crashers who have seen the Beastie Boys twice each in the last year and a half, we have to worry about who will take their place? Lollapalooza already has Tool and Bassnectar playing at the same time the Beastie Boys were scheduled to play Saturday night and organizers may not feel the need to put a new headliner in their place.

ACL had The Beastie Boys pitted against Kings of Leon Friday night and will likely find someone else to fill the gap. Neither stage is big enough to hold the entire Friday night ACL crowd. What do you think, festival fans? Who should take over the Friday night Beastie’s set at ACL?

    All the message boards are pointing to Jay-Z covering for BB. At least that’s what I’m hearing about lolla. They are both from new york, and there’s the Def Jam/Rick Rubin connection. Plus Jay-Z has an album coming out in September, which was produced by Kanye West, who as you all know is from Chicago. Oh course, this is all hear say.
