Adam Horovitz and Michael Diamond, better known as Ad-Rock and Mike D, have a book coming out on October 30 that tells the story of the Beastie Boys. The group’s impact on popular culture speaks for itself, and they have had a connection with skateboarding since the ‘90s. The two surviving Beasties give a firsthand account of the their progression from unknown punk rockers to global hip hop stardom in this upcoming release. The book features contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante, and more. We’re certainly looking forward to getting our hands on a copy when it drops.
In honor of the occasion, ADROCK and Mike D sat down for a rare and candid interview with House of Strombo that delves into their iconic past. Have a look at the hour-long interview in its entirety above.
