The Beastie Boys post a video on their website announcing Adam Yauch has a “very treatable” cancerous tumor in his salivary gland, forcing the band to cancel their summer tour dates. Yauch said he’s having surgery next week. “They did scans of my whole body and it’s only localized in this one area,” he explained. “It’s not in a place that affects my voice, so that’s nice. It’s convenient. So anyway, it’s a bit of a setback. It’s a pain in the ass, but it’s something that is very treatable in most cases.” A report from ITN has since been removed at Muzu.tv.
