Adam Yauch

The Beastie Boys' Adam "MCA" Yauch has a "very treatable" form of cancer that will force the group to cancel all upcoming performances and delay the release of its upcoming album, Yauch and his bandmates said in a statement.

The group said Yauch, 44, was diagnosed last week with a cancerous tumor in his left salivary gland. He said it would not affect his vocal chords.

Yauch, who has the growliest voice and, arguably, the smoothest flow of the group, shared the news with fans in a relatively upbeat video with fellow Beastie Adam "Ad Rock" Horovitz. read more
