I'll never forget seeing them live the week Licensed To Ill hit number one. It was such a revelation to see hip-hop fans, alternative fans, and metal fans at the same concert. That just didn't HAPPEN then.
By way of tribute, the Mets used all Beastie Boys songs as entrance music for their hitters tonight. Nice tribute to a New York legend.
This had disturbed me because I had floor seats to their show in Hampton VA. I was afraid it was going to be canceled but Jay is continuing the tour with P.Diddy and Mary J Blige. It makes me wonder why Jay would trade one diva for two bigger ones????
