Apologies for the blog 'jag' for those it irks. A real musical maestro and much, much more...
Can't believe that's 2 years!
Love the bestie boys and was fortunate enough to catch then at the connect festival in 2007, in what was a great line up with lots of great performances, the beasties blew the fucking place apart. One of my favourite performances ever by a band at the top of their game.
Was really gutted when he died as apart from being a fucking great artist, he was also one of the good guys who stood up for what he believed in.
I'm gonna go put on some beastie boys! :)
Saw them live in 92 on the Check Your Head Tour at The Hummingbird in Brum then at Reading when Nirvana headlined (Beasties were better but they really weren't in the spotlight in them days. Again at Glastonbury '94 then Wolves Civic Hall '95 and finally at the NEC circa '98 I think. Every one of those gigs was unique and they moved quite fast in musical terms. Any one that didn't catch them live should check out the 'Awesome I Shot That DVD'.
It'd be cool if, in time, Ad Rock and Mike D did something, guess that time isn't ready yet. One of my all-time faves.
