Adam Yauch's will forbids use of Beastie Boys music in adverts
The will of late Beastie Boys star Adam Yauch prevents the future use of his music in advertising, it has been revealed.
Yauch, also known as MCA, sadly passed away on May 4 aged 47 after a struggle with cancer.
Rolling Stone reports that his will, which was filed on Tuesday (August 7) in Manhattan Surrogate court, forbids the use of his image, name and "artistic property" for advertising purposes. The will reads:
"Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes."
The will names the rapper's wife, Dechen Yauch, as the executor of his estate, with MCA leaving behind his $6.4m wealth to his wife and daughter Tenzin Losel.
