The Beastie Boys defied genre categorization. So it seems fitting that their new memoir, due out in the fall of 2015 by Spiegel & Grau, will do the same. According to the New York Times the book will be more of an oral history. "Rather than a strict narrative patiently winding its way from bygone days, such a book might — in keeping with the group’s hypereclectic style — be a pastiche of voices, images, irreverent humor and pop-culture reference points." That is a lot of fancy talk and actually a little confusing. But Mike D and Ad-Rock will be at the helm and it will be edited by hip-hop journalist Sacha Jenkins so there's good reason to hope for the best.
