The two surviving members of the legendary Beastie Boys crew, Michael Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock), have signed a deal with Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Random House Publishing (who also published Jay Z’s Decoded). The deal is for an oral history memoir of the group, edited by ego trip co-founder Sacha Jenkins.
Julie Grau, the publisher of Spiegel & Grau, says the memoir will have a strong visual component to it, similar to the Beastie Boys’ ’90s mag, Grand Royal. According to the NYT, the book was in development for years but was put aside following the death of Adam “MCA” Yauch. Now, Diamond and Horovitz are said to be prepared to go ahead with the project. “I think that Adam and Mike ended up realizing that it was the right time for them,” said the group’s manager, Luke Janklow.
The memoir is currently slated for a Fall 2015 release.
