Mike D of the Beastie Boys tells Billboard only the friendly prodding from Capitol president Andy Slater and the band’s manager, John Silva, kept the band from continuing to tinker with their latest album ‘To the 5 Boroughs’ for months, or even years. “Because of the way we choose to work and because we work in our own studio, we could really go on forever,” he explained. “We have to say, ‘This is the release date we’re going to shoot for’ and work backwards from there. If we didn’t set deadlines for ourselves based on that, we really would just keep going on and on and fixing things and making new songs.” The full story at Billboard.com has since been removed.
