Adam Yauch not cancer free

Contrary to widely distributed reports from yesterday (January 7), Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch has not had the all-clear from cancer.

Yauch said: "While I'm grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggareted. I'm continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future."

Yauch was diagnosed with cancer of the paratoid gland in 2009.

The Beastie Boys' new album 'Host Sauce Committee Pt 2' is scheduled for a Spring release.
