Australia’s Time Off magazine caught up with Adam ‘Ad Rock’ Horowitz of the Beastie Boys and asked him about the impact the September 11th terrorist attacks continue to have on his beloved city. “It’s always in the back of your mind, you know what I mean?” Horowitz says. “You kind of forget about it, but it happens every single day. When you see a plane flying straight over Manhattan, or you’re in a train and someone just leaves a bag sitting somewhere, I’ll think about it and I’m sure I’m not alone in that. But people are just generally going about their business.”
The hip-hop scene has mutated several times since the Beastie Boys released ‘Licensed To Ill’ in 1986, but Adam Yauch (aka MCA) has “no idea” where the trio belong in 2005. “I really don’t know,” MCA admitted to Australia’s Time Off magazine. “I don’t know why people buy our records. I don’t understand it.” Nevertheless, he follows contemporary hip-hop. “I like most of what’s coming out,” he revealed. “The producers are taking the front stand in hip-hop right now. Nothing against the rappers, but it seems like there’s a lot of really interesting music being made, so I guess that’s more what I’m into right now.”
