Beastie Boy Yauch's Final 'F-ck You' To The System
Much-loved Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, who died of cancer in May aged only 47, has given one last "f--k you" to the system in his will, which was filed in New York on Tuesday. His will includes a phrase added in handwriting which prohibits his image or music to be used in advertising, as Rolling Stone discovered: "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," reads the will. The phrase "or any music or any artistic property created by me" was added in handwriting. His wife Dechen and their daughter Tenzin will inherit his $6.4 million fortune. Tributes for the influential rapper poured in after his unexpected death in May. A skatepark will be built in his honor in Brooklyn Heights, New York, and his former bandmates have discussed continuing their music careers, albeit under a different name.
